Crossing the alps by train

Cycling day 4/55 km

After a good and dry night – there was no rain even if I had a tent for the tent – I’ve started my day quite late at 9:30 h and had to climb up to Bad Gastein.

An old town with so much history, so many famous visitors – and now many closed hotels as there aren’t so many people who like to spend their holidays in an old-fashioned town.

So I had to hurry to catch the train to Mallnitz through the Tauern – the so-called Tauernschleuse.

Like in my childhood I was now crossing the alps by this train…great!

But when we reached the other side of the mountains I couldn’t believe what I saw…dark and heavy clouds!

So I pushed my self to hurry up and get to Spittal where my next campingsite was. Cycling in the woods the dark clouds where now always behind me so I saw always the sun – but only when I looked in front of me 😁.

Finally I’ve reached my campingsite, met a friendly german couple who invited me for dinner in front of their camper – and we talked about journeys already done or to be done…what a wonderful day – even with the smile of the sun! 😁
