Day 36. Dessau - Szczecin 5 km (1467 km)
This would be the final day in a series of long days on trains. It was cold and rainy all day.
I opted out of the 16.5 Euro breakfast at the hotel and went across the street to the bakery instead. It so cold that I had to wear a warm sweater and my rain jacket.
I went for a small bike ride in the Bauhaus area, nice and quiet in the morning. Then on to Dessau hauptbahnhof and wait for the first of 3 trains.
The change of trains in Berlin involved riding an elevator deep down in the basement where the next train waited for me. The train was a double decker with a big compartment for bikes. The ride was long and there were many bikes and trailers in the train.
In Angermünde I changed to the last small diesel train that would bring me the last bit to Szczecin. There was a massive police presence on the platform, checking passports and giving smokers orders to go to the smoking allowed zone.
Once in Szczecin there was a light rain, I had no hotel booked so I just tried to find one on the GPS. After some biking around I found a hotel. When I had about 200 meters to bike the skies opened up and it was like standing in a car wash, everything instantly wet. Great.
