When the road continues on the other side…
You take a boat.
When you cross the boarder…
Bye bye Czech Republic, very close to Poland, hello Germany.
When the camp site where you were supposed to sleep is closed…
You continue till the next town.
When you count all that together, we did our longest etappe of the journey till now and went over the 50km on one day.
Going through the Bohemian Massif along the meandering Elbe, to the Elbe Sandstone Mountains in Saxon Switzerland.

#Xavieerle

” Almost every night we camp, in sunny times and through storms, our Green Castle is our little home. Can you imagine, to transport one huuuuge tent, 6 sleeping bags, and so on, and so on, on two bikes? Every year we’re proud we manage again and again.”

#Xavieerle #miniChips

“At the same time, we know we are very privileged, to enjoy camping and moving from one place to another, and calling it holidays. To have all the luxury we need, while thousands of people are on the road every day…not by choice, not for holidays…”
