Luneburg to Fitzhacker by bike and Fitzhacker to Tangermunde by bus -- Monday, June 19, 2017

Today's ride generally followed the Elbe River, with a few modest hills for a change of pace. We only cycled for about 35 miles.

For logistical reasons, we are taking a bus from Fitzhacker to our evening destination of Tangermunde. Our lodging for the evening is a castle that was the home of the former emperor of Tangermunde. Our day sheet says that the castle's unforgettable charm casts a spell on all who visit.

We have also been informed that the hotel's coed sauna strictly enforces the "no clothing" rule. Readers of this blog should know that I strictly enforce the "what happens in Tangermunde, stays in Tangermunde" rule.

Along the route today, my only stop was a lookout point just off the road and high above the Elbe. To get a view unobstructed view you had to climb about 8 stories to the observation platform. The view was worth it.

In Fitzhacker, I had a light lunch at the Houseboat Cafe -- basically a small barge in the canal. I was able to get out of the sun to eat my currywurst and then stroll through the village and get a gelato.

I am writing this post on my phone on the bus (a first, I think). We just had a brief halt to allow a parade of the local gun clubs to pass by. This was specially arranged so that I would have some photos to fill up the blogšŸ˜‰
