Not long later I meet up with Frederik a guy I know from the PC we went together into Copenhagen and he showed me around wich was really fun!
And getting ready for our first real planned cycling trip!
Today the plan was easy. Get on the train from Eindhoven to Utrecht and from Utrecht to Kopenhagen.
The trouble already started in Eindhoven after a little storn there were delays of 90 minutes... So after waiting so long we eventually got on a train wich was so full that there was almost no room for the bike, but we managed to get in to the insanely hot train it was really warm.
In Utrecht no problem we got in the train and took of. But then at 11 O'clock the train stops for over half an hour. With heavy rain ans wind. We get to hear from other people that there are problems with the railroad but it will be fixed. After 9 hours going around the train inside and outside we were told that this train is not going to move anymore and then we had to go to a station in Dortmund with a taxi, but our bikes don't fit in there so they said. That's your problem...
So here we are just 120 km's from home stuck. We met up with other cyclist and came to the idea to cycle to 60 km's to Dortmund wich was a hell of a ride!
So we teamed up with a road cyclist and 2 other tour cyclists. We got our GPS set and after a short time we figured out why the train wasn't going to drive anymore.
Germany was like a battlefield tries everywhere cars hidden under fallen trees roads closed and traffic accidents.
After a while of intresting driving because of the trees and closed roads we came to Dortsmund where they should help us on a train. We had to go to Hamburg and get a train there but every train to Hamburg would't let us in with the Bikes. We were stranded in Dortmund, eventually we came to the idea to ask for the nightlane to Kopenhagen. Wich was going from this station. But she was not sure of there was going to be place.
After a nice dinner in town we come back at the train wich is standing ready to leave to Kopemhagen we sneaked our cycles on board and went outside talking with the staff and see if we can get in. We had to pretent like we are a family so we had more chance to get in. And right now I am wrighting feom the train directly to Copenhagen.
