The roads are more calm in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. Nearly every road has a cycle path. Some areas are quite remote.
As the prices for "my fuel" are quite high in Scandinavia, I stocked up before Sweden.
(actually, the whisky prices on the ferry are not that cheap)
The early ferryboat leaves Rostock Überseehafen at 8am, which meant for me getting up at 5am. From my Hotel, only 10km away from the Harbour, I made the early start.
Currently, I am on the ferry on the baltic sea.
