Spent the last morning with Phil wandering around Augsburg and going to quite an interesting exhibition I had read about: The women of the Elvira photo-studio in Augsburg and Munich (https://kunstsammlungen-museen.augsburg.de/atelier-elvira ).
We finally parted company at the station, Phil taking the train back to Munich. I went on, leaving Augsburg to the West, along a fairly big road, but the bike path was ok. I got into the woods and nature reserve fairly soon, and from then on it was really nice! At first I seemed to be following the via Julia, a bike path following a Roman road, which was very well tarmacked. Then I went on more gravelly tracks, and it went up (and down) a lot more. Beautiful to about Burgau.
I made quite good ground, and a nice landlord gave me some tips regarding camp sites in the area, so I carried on over the river Danube and put my tent up on the opposite side to Günzburg.
No internet here, and I have to use my powerbanks. Need to fill them up with solar energy tomorrow. Climbed over 500m today, just the start of what is coming…
