Wheeling2Help : Day 9

The good news were that the newspapers and the hairdryer helped to dry our shoes and clothes which were completely wet because of yesterday rain shower! The bad news were that rain was supposed to be harder and last for the whole day. After a healthy breakfast we started our way to France crossing the river!

Soon we were at France again, where the first part was quite easy as there were plenty of signs.

Leaving the river, cycling to Alsatia, we met a few up hills, however the incredible wind and the continuing rain made us stop in a forest we met. That was the time when I wondered why I do all this! I was hungry, cold, in pain but I made a huge effort and continue because the effort of little angels of Floga is much harder and those kids motivated me.

We started again as the km were ahead and time was restricted. After a while reaching our limits, sun started to arise and at the same time one of the most beautiful landscape we met! We were then at lovely Alsatia.. which cannot be described by words :)

Honestly I could cycle in this beautiful forest for hours, I couldn’t stop smiling and enjoying the greatness of nature! Till our friend Wheely showed us the way to the village Ingwiller and the beautiful little house of miss Kristina where we spent the night  :)
