River Danube Tour Day 8: Feeling the chill at 30 degrees

This morning we made Regenburg and it is a really nice town/city.  We got up at 0800 and had breakfast.  When we were loading the bikes we could tell there was a different feeling in the air.  There were clouds and it was cooler than normal at that time.  When on the bikes we noticed that it was not really changing as the day progressed.  We required less stops and I only had one cola today.  The temp still reached 30 but there was a cooler breeze and it made a massive difference to our attitude and kilometres completed.

We stopped just briefly all day to rest the bum for lunch we saw a picnic table and made boiled egg buttys.

It makes so much difference being a little bit cooler, we felt like we could have ridden all day.  The only problem we face at the moment because of the heat is we have fallen a day behind.  I am hoping if the cooler temp continues we may be able to make this up.

We ended up in a city campsite in Straubing at it is lovely, so quiet and peaceful even though the centre is only a km away.
