After looking with amazement how much these Czech can eat for breakfast, I leave at 9:00.
Round 11:30 I arrive at Rodbyhavn, where I have to wait for an hour to get on the ferry.
On the ferry I sleep in the car for 45 minutes, so I am fresh to start again.
I do a little part on the highway, but this “swish swish” of these fast German cars is very tiring, so I turn on to the B-roads again. The bus feels at home here..
Tomtom says I should be home at 22:30, so I hope I will make it before midnight.
(It doesn’t count the time I stop to have coffee or food…)
Around 17:00 I am in Gluckstadt again, to cross the Elbe. I do something stupid, and pass all the cars, and then have to play the stupid Englishman, that doesn’t understand German.
(Almost nobody recognizes the number plates, and I carry an English (not Great Britain) flag on the back on the car.)
But they all like the “Bulli” and I have a hard time not to answer directly, while I do understand exactly what they are saying. Anyway I get away with it, and am first on the ferry….
At Westersteden I turn on to the Highway. It’s starts raining. It seems like it is always raining in Northern Germany when I pass.
It’s getting dark.
At Leer it’s becoming a cloud-burst and my windshield wiper stops…..
So I stop too, have coffee, a little sleep, and then repair the windshield wiper…
On the highway there is “Bauarbeiten”, 1-lane only, so for 12 km I go 50 in this terrible rain and gain a lot of followers….
But I make it, at 23:45 I am home.
I started this trip at 45.591 and ended it at 52.685. So 7.094 km, been to the North Cape, seen 12.000 American cars, met a lot of nice people, seen sun and rain.
Drove most the Inlandsvagen and never going to do it again…
I hope you all enjoyed the little stories and the pictures.
