Leaving Leiwen and riding to Trier

I stay in Leiwen at Weinhaus Kurtrierer Hof which was a large old fam house. NO one spoke any english so it was difficult trying to communicate at all. This has never been the case anywhere is all the years we have traveled in Germany and Austria. I would not recommend this hotel.

It was a long ride and very hot. The last 5 miles to Trier seemed to be through an industrial park where there was broken glass everywhere. I actually carried by bike in a few spots. My ride was 20 miles total, however it is really hot in September, usually high 80;s in the afternoon.

Arrived in Trier in a very new modern hotel. They were able to get me in an hour early and was able to get a first floor room so I could bring in my bike. Walked around in the afternoon to get dinner at Subway. Decided to stay two nights although they don't have a room. I was able to book another room in a nearby hotel on my own.

I still have another 332 miles to Munich and have to arrive on 9/12/23. That is not feasible so tomorrow I will book a train ticket for Friday Sept 8 and take the train to Manheimm which still leaves me 221 miles to go. Stay tuned
