    Hi Dan,
    I’ve enjoyed your pics and story from the 1st leg of your journey. I was in southern Germany a month ago and also enjoyed the castle and surrounding area. Germany is a place I always enjoy visiting.

    A thoroughly enjoyable travelog – thanks for sharing. Looking forward to Part II.

    Nice! I’ll be visiting the Alps this Summer as well, and biking the entire Swiss Alpine #1 Mountain Bike Route.

  • Rolf says:

    Thanks for a very inspiring story: makes med want to get a full tank of diesel and head for the alps! We have toured the alps with the car before and always want to go back, as we live in Sweden it is not too far after all. I didn’t know about the Via Claudia Agusta route before but it sounds interesting. Lots of nice roads, places and views in the alps!
    Regards, /Rolf

    Impressive that you rode your bike up to the castle, 40 years ago I walked up there but this past May I took the bus to the bridge and walked over from there. I enjoy your books and your blog. Have Happy New Year
