Cycle touring Bodensee

Leonie and I spent a frantic morning fixing her bike and getting sorted to go cycle touring. Just after midday we managed to escape Freiburg on the train to Titisee. From there we mounted our trusty steeds and promptly got a little lost. We headed away from Titisee by a little track that headed up into the Black Forest. After a couple of hours of riding around we found some more sensible signs. We headed down hill towards Lake Constance arriving in Schaffhausen in Switzerland in the evening. We camped the night there.

On Saturday we did a little exploring around Schaffhausen. I had a quick dip in the Rhein and then we went to investigate the Rhein waterfall. So did many other people. Then it was off for some more cycling goodness. It was warm. We headed along beside the lake directly before Lake Constance stopping briefly to swim with naked Swiss people. We found a nice little campground amongst a multitude of bad ones and stayed there the night.

On Sunday we continued riding around Lake Constance until we arrived in Lindau. After attending to our stomachs there and a quick swim we headed back to Germany by train.
