We considered going further than Donauworth today if we had the ambition, but the heat of the day drained that right out of us. We did, however, decide to not bother taking a rest day. None of us feel a need, yet, for a rest day, which is pretty awesome. We have taken a couple of short days, but no actual rest days so far.

I sketched out a plan to get to us to Fussen, advancing a relatively small distance each day (between 30 and 60km), hopping Campingplatz to Campingplatz. We should reach Fussen by Friday, which is several days ahead of my original projection. That should give us time to do some “bonus riding” perhaps out of Fussen… perhaps along the Rhine… who knows? We’ll see.
Breakfast at our Penzion wasn’t until 8AM, so we went out early to do a little walking tour of Nordlingen. It is a very lovely place.
Being in Donauworth is interesting because we were also here in 2015 when we rode the Donau. Last time, it was raining so we’d taken accommodation at a Penzion and eschewed the Campingplatz, even though Laura and Gabi had waited there for us for a time (after Laura’s bike spoke repair). It’s beautiful this time… in fact, a little too beautiful. It’s scorching hot. After setting up at the Campingplatz we went into town for ice cream, beer and dinner.
