ENJOYING A REST DAY IN HAMBURG! DAY 6, JULY 10
Our group of cyclists and staff walked last evening to a good German restaurant for a festive dinner together in Hamburg. We are all in good spirits as we await our first rest day. Experience Plus arranged a boat trip on the Elbe River for us this morning. It is the waterway to the sea for this large port facility; the largest in Germany and a main port for Europe. Our German boat captain narrated an excellent overview of the city, the port, the neighborhoods, and the ships we passed by during our hour long cruise. It was a nice morning activity. We walked in town, rode the metro train, and lunched fittingly on a HAMBURG in a Japanese restaurant. The Tour de France on TV, The Tour de France and some rest were afternoon activities. Our “Route Rap” for tomorrow‘s ride (Hamburg to Bremen) was given on the boat just before heading out into the waterway.
