Brick in Munich & and Jet Lag

imageWell Chris and I are here in Munich. My flight was fine but very uncomfortable! I can not imagine how anyone larger than me could ever spend that much time in those miniature seats! I always thought I wouldn’t have Jet Lag. Well I’m here to tell you it sure made things rough on me this trip. The advice give was to push through and don’t go to sleep until the evening.

Well we got in around 7:30am so it was a long day

Munich is a cool place! We are staying in an older hotel that is on the edge of the old Munich area and its jumping with activity. We investigated the train station for this mornings train ride to Landshut to Maier Honda Yamaha to pickup our rental bikes. The in the evening we went to see the night life. It’s a hoping place for sure.

Well off to breakfast and a train ride.

Brick Rides the Alps 2015 12 Hours to lift off

Well I’m all set boarding pass is printed I’ve check-in. Delta says I’m ready to fly! I know I am! Just went to bed and thought of two things I needed to do. One was to try to find where to post the “more” like I said in my first post. I did add a comment as I thought that’s where I continued the blog. Jay our WebMaster says no just do a new post. I guess I wonder how it is supposed to be linked to the first post? If anyone knows… well let me know. I might be able to check this during one of the waiting times that there is when flying.

I’m off to Munich!

Brick Rides the Alps July 2015

Well I thought I would give this a try. I’ve never blogged, is that a word? Anyway here goes.

Since before I started riding I read and heard about riding in the Alps. Yes, those Alps the ones in Switzerland, Austria, Slovenia, Italy! One day in like February this year I was saying something about my desire to Ride the Alps. So Patricia says, “You should go before you can’t”.  I say, OK… let the planning start. I wanted to see if I could afford to do this. I never wanted to do a guided tour I just wanted to go Ride the Alps. The more I looked the more I realized I could do this.

So then in April I’m almost set to start making reservations I had set it up for a 10 day ride. Patricia says to me, “What’s the most expensive part of your trip?” The airplane ticket, I say. The she says, “Well then you should stay longer”! Who are you and what did you do with my Patricia? So now it’s a 20 day trip. I fly into Munich, Germany and rent a bike and start my ride on July 1st with my friend Chris Jernigan.

More later….
