Le Grand Tour: Day 56 – Kembs To Kehl (120km)

CURRENT LOCATION: Campingplatz Kehl

About 80% of today was deathly dull. Why did I end up cycling the Rhine-Rhône Canal again after having cycled it north to south in 2010 and been bored just as rigid back then? I suppose it was because I ended up on the French side of the Rhine last night. Tonight’s short video is a boring one reflecting the day quite well… 

Before I tell you about the more positive denouement of the day, here’s a longer video about Stein Am Rhein that I visited yesterday: 

Camping de Strasbourg was, according to the surly woman on the phone, full. I checked Google again and discovered the Canpingplatz in Kehl. Wonderful! Just finished a nice evening with my fellow campers. (Only the annoying techno music from Strasbourg to worry about…)

Sunday update: the music continued until 2am. We were not happy campers this morning!
