Today was an awesome day and reminded me again of how I love to bike! It was cool in the morning and then began to warm up. We're staying in a nice hotel, all cabins built with bamboo. The floor is made of weaved bamboo, the walls everything. This vacation is not for someone who wants to sleep in every morning! We have breakfast at 6 and are on the bike at 7 am. We biked about 62 km today with a tough 6 km climb. We stop often for tea, snacks, soup (cost 50 cents) etc. The soil here is red/ocre, reminiscent of Arizona, but with a different landscape of course. It is mostly farm land and is the plowing season. Once the farmers used cattle for this and some still do!
Today for the first time I used my Go Pro camera. I think I'm going to give it to the guide after I have down loaded all the pictures after the trip. He will love it and had never seen one. He tells stories of how difficult it is for him to run a company in this military government!
Despite being on a waitlist for a top deck cabin, we asked and received one upon boarding the boat. My friend Derek flew in from Vegas to join me on this trip. 910 was our room number and it had a nice sliding door/window to the outside. Read More
By: Mary Z.About a year ago, we had a request come in for a bike and boat tour in Poland. Somebody had talked with somebody who had heard that there was such a tour. We searched... and we found it. Not a tour on the Baltic Sea as you would expect, but an obscure tour, undiscovered by most, in the Masurian Lake District. Over 15% of the area is covered by water and another 30% by forest. There are 2000 lakes, many interconnected, so a perfect place for a bike and boat tour and our first on lakes. Read More
