Waking up at 6:45 a.m. Nicola, a friend of a friend of mine, who hosted me the previous night, had an early at university, so we woke up at the same time! Although I felt like sleeping only 2-3 hours, at least I had plenty of time to explore lovely Strasburg!
First surprise was the fact that all the citizens use bicycles! Either going to job or to university, extremely friendly city to cycle! Wandering at the city center, I passed by beautiful bridges, nice buildings, squares and a colorful market with variety of food.
However, I had to leave because I started to feel anxious of the route which was Paris’s responsibility using the gps. Unfortunately, I had no idea and indeed I needed 2 hours to leave Strasburg, as the rain made the conditions harder one more time.
Before I started to feel completely desperate, I finally met Rheine river and the signs guiding to my next stop, the city of Colmar.
For the next 60 km I was cycling at paths next to the river admiring the nature and its greatness. Even if the rain didn’t stop, the wonderful scenery made me forget everything!
Little by little I arrived at the city of Colmar, where Emiy and her daughter Iziz would host me!
85 km done, 1.548 left :)
