I've some good news and some bad news today! First the good ones.
I made it to Prague today. Although I've been here already a few times and I already visited a few other nice places on this trip so far, it's the first place that I was really excited to visit on this journey. So I'll stay here for a couple of nights to explore and have a good time. 😎
Now the bad news.
Although I'm happy to be in Prague now, it's been probably the worst day of my trip so far. First, I followed the cycling trail signs in Melnik in direction Kralupy. It turned out that there's something wrong with it so after maybe 1.5-2 hours I ended up in Melnik again. That was definitely my worst detour so far and it was super annoying at that point. 😐
At one point I took a small ferry to cross the river. At that point I was wearing my camera around my neck. While leaving the ferry the cover of the lense came off and fell into the water. 😐
Later in Prague I even dropped my little action camera. Now the display is broken but the camera still seem to work. I'll have to test it. 😐
Oh well, I guess all what matters is that I arrived safe and sound in Prague - even if it took me a bit longer than expected - and the lost and broken things are replaceable.
In that sense, ahoj from Praha! ✌
It's been a rainy and windy day today but I reached my next #milestone today. Now I've 500 kilometers on the clock. I crossed the 500k mark right were #Germany and #Europe were divided between Kapern and Bömenzien until 31st March 1990.
Barney and I arrived safe and sound in #Flensburg this afternoon. Thanks to everyone who came to the #Hafenspitze to welcome us.
Within the last two weeks I cycled 1000+ kilometers through entire #Germany from #Oberstdorf to Flensburg and raised €250 for Doctors without Borders. Thanks to everyone who donated to this #fundraising campaign. I really appreciate it! 👍
I had to go through is some serious physical pain and mental lows which made this #trip a real #challenge . The mostly awful weather didn't help either.
However, I'm glad to be back at #home now. Thanks to everyone who supported me throughout out this #journey .
I know that my #blog isn't up to date at the moment so I'll work on it over the next days. So stay tuned if you want to read the whole #story of #Expedition1000GER .
The last days were quite challenging due to different reasons such as mental lows and shitty weather conditions. So sometimes I thought about giving up on #Expedition1000GER . I thought that most likely nobody would even care. I should just hop on the next train and go home. However, I didn't!
I checked my emails today and received a message from one of my #followers . Attached there was this pic saying: There's no giving up!
I guess that means I was wrong! Thanks for your support! I really appreciate it! 👍
Since I left the #emergency room in #Hildesheim I stood in #Celle for a night, went through #Soltau yesterday and made it to #Hamburg today. That makes it about 870 km since I left #Oberstdorf and only another 170 km until #home . 🚲
#Expedition1000GER update...just got out of the #emergency room in #Hildesheim because parts of my left hand feels numb. 🏥
After a few tests and a computer tomography it turned out that a nerve in my left arm is incarcerated probably from putting to much pressure on the elbow while #cycling . Usually they would put my arm in a cast to make sure that there's no more pressure on it and it can recover. I got some pills and have to take it easy from now on. ✌😎
I'm gonna head in direction #Celle now.
Btw, I cycled 90+ kilometers yesterday. That means I'm up to almost 700 kilometers now. 🚲🐻
