Soon we meat Dave & Michelle with their Japanese friends. They have been travelling for two years around the world. Check out their webside:
Shortly after meeting them we faced our first real obstacle. Because someone told us that we had to take the ferry to the other side of the river and no bridge was in between, the only way was to cross at a dam.
We had to unload the bikes, carry everything up the stairs, reassemble, cross the dam, unload again and carry everything down the stairs. Thanks to David´s help we managed to do so in about 30 minutes.
As we went on we came across another bridge, which would have been much easier to cross.
After some ups and downs, we reached a nice camping ground along the river. Across the river was a nice castle on the hill.
We set up our camp and David decided to cycle to the next town to find a supermarket. In his absence I set up the folding canoe.
When he was back we took the canoe, crossed the river and walked up to the castle. The castle was too far so we went back, crossed the river again and made dinner. Not long after we had eaten we went to bed.
