May 17th to 21th – Hamburg to Dresden
Months of preparation are behind of us and finally we started our roadie in Hamburg-Poppenbüttel!
What a feeling! Finally on the road again, finally travelling again, excited for the adventures still to come!
Our first stop was Geesthacht were we had a nice Backfisch, sitting at a nice place next to the Elbe river. Our starting point for the first part of our trip as we are heading to the source of the Elbe river at the Czech/Polish border.
Next stop was in Tangermünde where we set up our brand new touring tent for the first time at campground next to a lake with hundreds of frogs… quite a loud night though.
A bit tired we drove on beautiful roads through the forests and many little towns in the North-Eastern part of Germany to Leipzig where we visited the city a bit, bought some equipment we forgot and after a nice Czech beer we had a good sleep in a cool Airbnb in central Leipzig.
Since two days we are in cosy Freital next to Dresden. It was a nice and smooth ride on beautiful windy roads on a couple of smaller mountains, always with Elbe river next to us. Passing through picturesque Meissen, famous for its Porzelan manufacturing and old houses.
In Freital we were very welcomed by our good friend Intigam who lets us sleep in his caravan and showed us around in his hometown. After visiting Dresden, having good food and watched the DFB cup final, the next day we had a nice open air party:
Good people around, nice music, fantastic weather and many drinks!
Today it’s time to chill out, exploring the city of Dresden a bit more and just relax before we are driving to Spindlermühle in Czech Republic, the place where the Elbe source is located.
