Another rest period over (two full days off the bike!), and the job of updating the blog has been left until 2am. Seems I’ve been too busy talking with Stefan and Sabine, cleaning / servicing the bike, upgrading a few things, etc, etc.

But I have been learning some more German. My current memorised spiel is:
Entschuldigung, ich spreche kein Deutsch, aber, ich habe, sowieso, ein vogel.

I think I know what it means, it seems to crack Stefan and Sabine up when I get it right. It’s an improvement (sowieso) over “Ich habe eine hund”. Which is all I remember from 3 years of primary school german, and is wrong in so many ways (gramatically and, well, I don’t have, and never have had, a dog). But I am (at least a little) crazy. And I’ve owned a bird.

And coming all this way north to see Stefan and Sabine was a good idea. It was great to see them again (and sample/devour some more of Stefan’s cooking). Although they may have appreciated stepping inside their house after a month in Cuba before having to deal with me 🙂

Now, I’m going to roll down the Danube, until, possibly in need of food, I hit Hungary.
