View Touring Germany on RickAdderley's travel map.

Today didn't start off too well. We packed up as usual, loaded the trike, put all of our gear on and rode up the ramp to the exit barrier to leave the hotel. Sand put the parking ticket into the reader and the ticket failed to open the barrier. She tried it twice more and it failed each time. By this time there was a car behind us. We had to reverse back down the ramp after the car had also reversed, we rode back to our parking space, went up in the lift to get another exit ticket authorised. By this time we were beginning to melt πŸ₯΅πŸ˜‘ although it was oly 16 degrees outside. This one worked and we were on our way.

The ride was going to be quite a long one, just over 3 hours in the saddle and about 145 miles. We were going to have a stop in Wurzburg for lunch but we bypassed the city as we decided to do our last washing excursion when we arrived, leaving Bonn (tomorrow's journey) free to explore rather than to take time washing.

We rode through some mixed weather but arrived at 1415h quite dry. We couldn't check in until 1500h so, by the time we disrobed, obtained the use of a luggage trolly, unpacked the trike, it was almost time to check in. After checking in, we went to our room, changed into shorts, unpacked one of our bags, loaded the washing and walked to the laundry, it was 1525h. It was less than a 2 hour turn around as we were drinking out 1st beer 🍺🍻 shortly after 1720h.

After quite a long day and the rain in Wiesbaden we decided to stay in the hotel and you can see why:

Sand had a very unhealthy veggie pizza and she didn't even eat all of the crusts !!! I had a very healthy burger, as you can see πŸ˜πŸ˜„, and it beat me!

We move onto Bonn tomorrow.
