Day 83

Hamburg

sunny 20 °C

Hamburg

We set off from Lemvig this morning in beautiful sunshine again as we headed down the west coast of Denmark. There are some beautiful nature reserves on the coast and a few thin spits of land sheltering lagoons again. For stretches 10 miles long or so we were riding at the foot of huge sand dunes/banks on one side (facing the sea) and on the other side of the road a big lagoon. Lots of wildlife around as well, plenty of people out enjoying the weather and a fair few insects found our visors too! There were also lots of bikers to wave to.

Shortly after lunch we made it over the border into Germany. At a petrol stop we found a German fella with a fifty year old BMW bike and a couple of friendly petrol attendants. The girl was understandably helpless against our charms and fantastic German.

Back on the road we noticed a more forested and undulating landscape than Denmark and enjoyed the small roads south towards Hamburg. We also noticed that virtually all of the traffic lights were switched off, so either someone hasn't paid the bills, they're rethinking all of their junctions or they're conducting a huge social experiment,

In Hamburg we parked up on a partially pedestrianised street to find a room for the night. Every other shop seemed to be a kebab shop ('kebaps' here) or an adult DVD shop and all the hotels were pretty full as there is a marathon tomorrow, but we got a place without too much trouble.

270 miles makes 15 642 total.
