GERMANY AND AUSTRIA

I read about Tubingen, Germany on BBC travel. College town, fiercely Vegan, average age 40 and to my delight a HUGE biking town. Camping Tubingen Neckarcamping, just 3 km from town is a great place to set up for exploring. The camp was full of individuals and families mostly bike touring! There’s so many paved off road biking opportunities in Germany, I see why it’s so popular here.

SPAIN: San Sebastián & Madrid

SAN SEBASTIAN

I’m staying at Camping Oliden, about 11km from the city center. The first 2 people I meet in Spain? Juan & Jose (you can’t make this stuff up). I start setting up camp, they decide it’s now time to mow the grass,. 2 hours of mowing later it’s finally quiet again. I have all 6 sites to myself. Good thing, its time to recharge everything, 6 outlets and I’m using 4 of them, glad no one else is here.

There’s some hills between Ljubljana & Piran especially on a bike.

There wasn’t much traffic, but it seemed 50% of the time there was a sidewalk where you could ride

Thanks to the pandemic, travelling outside Slovenia takes more risk & more work than I’m willing to give. I’ve opted for the staycation, vacationing close to home.

If you adopt a combination of these travel methods, then the real adventures begin. Plus your helping protect the planet for current & future generations.

I biked in the Czech Republic a couple years ago and thought it had some of the best signed & nearly carfree bicycle touring.  I tried to go this summer (2018), but there was too much stuff going on.  After volunteering at the Botanical Garden, I checked the weather in Prague, sunny for at least a week.  I was on the train the next day heading north to Prague with my bike.

WHAT I SAW ON MY FAREWELL AMERICA BIKE TOUR, AN ENVIRONMENTAL VIEW. MILLENNIAL’S (Y)OUR SAVIORS?

I have so many thoughts about what I saw while biking through Oregon and California. Since high school the environment has always been a major concern (religion) to me.  I was proudly recycling bottles & cans back in 1972.  Back then my Dad told me it was cheaper and easier to just throw them away, as he was throwing a beer bottle into the garbage.  46 years later lots of America’s still have that attitude.  The worlds resources are just for them to use once and toss into the garbage.
