Day 3, Saturday
Iím done with breakfast by 8. Brijette convinces me that Lindau and its island on the Bodensee are worth a visit, plus I should be able to find a place to use the internet and touch base with home. Johann sees me off.

Lindau is an interesting place to walk around.

Who says germans have no sense of humor?

The woman at the shop next to the internet place says he usually opens at 10. When itís not open at 10:30 I ride to another store with access but find it is closed until summer. Iím ready to leave town but swing by the first spot and find it open. I do my emailing and head northwest along Lake Constance. By the time I ride the 30km to Meersburg Iím tired of the traffic and head inland into Schartzwald (Black Forest). I left a business card in someoneís hunting blind.

While eating a lunch of leftover pizza I decide to return to Sigmarszell for the night. That afternoon I ride as far as Krauchenwies before looping back. The roads were entertaining but not as twisty as I was would come across later. The sandbox in the Stockach city park had running water.

I have supper with Mainting at his bistro in Friedrichshafen.

The family was entertaining company inside when I arrived but the grandma was there to let me in. I was content to have a quiet evening with a beer on the balcony.
