Biking to Csongrád

I set out today on the bike with hopes of making it to Csongrád at least. I did get there, but it took all day, since I ended up on some dirt roads and then in a forest, through which I made my way slowly.

The forest dipped–and when I went in to look more closely, I saw the Tisza. There was no sound in the woods, except for branches, birds, some faraway traffic, and deer leaping by. I clambered over logs and under brambles.

Then came the first bridge, the one that allowed me to cross the Tisza and head toward Csongrád.

Then a long stretch, through several towns, before reaching the bridge into Csongrád. Before that bridge, I biked through some fields. The sun let me know where I was heading.

Then came the bridge, then Csongrád itself, then the train ride home. I hope to go back at some point and bike onward to Szeged. That’s a two-day trip, so this was not bad for one day. The detours and uncertainties were the best part, along with the arrival.
