Wednesday 5th September (Day 50) Lindau

Slept like logs - horizontal and totally inert. Spent the day wandering around the island (not a huge challenge as it´s a tiny island), exploring the nooks and crannies of the town, and chatting about the journey so far. The lake is huge and impressive, but very cold looking and wind-ruffled.

This afternoon, John replaced the brake blocks on all four brakes on our bikes while I came and updated the Blog and checked emails. There was a brilliant email from SJS Cycles from whom we bought our bikes and most of our gear. They are being extremely proactive in helping us with pannier failures and problems. Really chuffed.

We also bought a book of bike routes across Switzerland and are planning to follow the highly recommended route 5. Tomorrow we are heading around Lake Bodensee (Constance) toward Switzerland...let´s hope the rain goes, and the temperature rises.
