    Have a great time! Sounds like it will be a good trip. Are you staying in hostels mostly or camping?

    I am travelling along Danube to Deggendorf then I head south along the Isar radweg through Munich and south to the Bodensee-Konigsee radweg. I then head east to the bodensee, ride around it and take the Rhine north up into The Netherlands (with excursion to Belgium? depending on tiredness)

    I will be hostelling mostly with some camping (I am bringing tent sleeping bag)

    Here is a link to the rough sketch of my cycling route:

    It's hard to see the rivers on the map when I made it but I will stay along the Danube until Deggendorf and I will follow the Rhine from Bodensee up to Rotterdam

    Good luck. sounds fun. Wish our pending trip to Hungary/Romania were all bike miles. Gotta please the wifie. Will rent a bike in like four locations for some local touring. Besides, from Venice to Brasov to Bratislavia on a bike is too ambition on a bike for two weeks. It would be easy to take my bike on the train, but a pain to put it on Ryan Air to Venice.
    You going thru Germany's Romantic road. Wish I were trailing you.
