Cycling the Danube River

 Over the past months, we've been busy cycling.
And my favorite destination?
Ivy's house for a glass of cold ice tea.

But along the way, we've enjoyed cruising through the valley flats.
I'm just 'swinging' by Myka's house.
I've been waiting for a glass of lemonade.
Maybe next time.  I'll text her first.

 Past the freshly cut hay fields, always with a view of Mount Cheam.
Then we glide through Rosedale and stop at our favorite resting point,
only to find out that I have a flat tire....we will call Christopher to the rescue.

But on a more recent cycling trip...I discovered I had another flat tire.
My husband has equipped all our vehicles with jumper cables, snow scrapers,
you name it...he'll equip your vehicle with everything, even BCAA .
just to make sure you're never stuck.

But during all our cycling trips....
do you think he has ever traveled with a spare tube or a bicycle pump?
This has been my third flat tire in less than three weeks.

Well, we just managed to navigate around the corner to 
You can read about her inspiring story of living each day to it's best.
She was home and thanks for the refreshing drink and a gulp of fresh air.

 Guess what arrived in the mail over the past few days?
A survival kit for our bike trip to Europe.
Thanks obviously remembered when your Dad gave you 
the survival kit for avalanche skiing.

 Anyways, we are about to leave the valley to cycle and visit family in Europe.
Just upon leaving, I discovered another gift...
only to be opened on flight.
Thanks Hilda!

 You will hear about our travels and adventures at a later date.

Auf Wiedersehen!


  1. Looking forward to seeing all your adventures. You know though, now that you have that emergency kit there will be no more flat tires! :)

  2. Oh what fun you will be having! May the wind be always on your back, the trail mostly downhill, the skies blue and sunny...and may NONE of your tires be flat! Looking forward to hearing about your adventures.

  3. Looking forward to hearing all about your trip! Sounds wonderful!

  4. Oh I love this and am SO looking forward to hear about your adventure on two wheels!!! You look like a pro. I love Judy's blessing and also wish those things for you on your trip - have a blast!!!

  5. Another lovely day in the Fraser Valley, and I really hope it's the same for you.
    The thought of cycling along the Danube brought tears to my eyes. Perhaps next year...? Would like to hear all about it when you get back. Enjoy to the fullest and wishing you the very best.

  6. I think I'm going to be jealous! Cycling along the Danube River sounds a bit like heaven! Have fun in that beautiful part of the world.

  7. Oh Marg! I do hope you have a most wonderful ride down the Danube river. At least you will likely have someone taking care of flats and you can look forward to meeting the riverboat at the end of the day!

  8. Marg, next time you cycle by our home I will definitely have an ice-cold lemonade ready for you! I want to hear all about your adventure cycling along the Danube River and vicinity while we sit and sip out on the deck. God bless you in your travels! cheers, Myka and The Rosedale Swing Company team.

  9. What a dream of a trip! My sister and BIL cycled the Danube about 10 years ago and my nephew and his wife just came back on the weekend. Have a wonderful time!

  10. Thinking about you each day. Love that care package from Mikki. Isn't it nice when our kids watch out for us! Hugs to you and your guy!

  11. Will the part of the Danube you will be cycling? I live in Vienna but have never cycled along the Danube either along the river or canal. All because I do not know how to cycle :(

    Enjoy your trip to Europe.
