End of our journeyOctober 8, 2020 in Germany ⋅ ☁️ 10 °C
We have decided to cancel our trip due to personal reasons. On our way to Hamburg. Thanks for having followed us, it meant a lot to us.
Day 5 started with road mission 1: drive up Schneeberg 1051 m above sea level at Fichtelgebirge. We only made to the parking lot, fair enough. Gotta keep rolling to keep up pace.
Right now we are working on road mission 2: From Rötz via Cham, Chamerau, Bad Kötzting towards Viechtach. Nice voyage !
Task of the day: since we are located in Bavaria all day long, we have to fulfil German cliché i.e. Bavarian stereotype. Dress up in Lederhosen, a Mass beer, eine Brez'n whatever the case may be. No pictures to follow!Read more
We passed Elbe river in Meißen, scratched Erzgebirge, then straight to Vogtland where we found the action point for the task of the day. A former NVA military casern, German-German history, today playground for adults.
From Vogtland we drove to Oberfranken in Northern Bavaria, found a camping site with hot shower.Read more
Today roadbook requested us to find Müritzsee, which was the location for the task of the day. We had to canoe blindly and guided by a second team respectively. Afterwards we had to give proof of our memory skills.
Mecklenburg-Vorpommern we traded our horseshoe against a set of blue lunch box and alu bottle
Brandenburg : yellow glass of finest virgin wild flower honey from Rheinsberg apiary- nice fetch !
Even better: red pumpkin in Berlin- Halloween is coming!
Still 7 trades left- did we mention the trade object must always gain at least 100 grams ? 🙈
Veronika almost found a Fritz aged 80 or older- one of 10 tasks under the category "missions on the road".
Now heading for a lost place near Berlin: Wünsdorf, the "forbidden city" once had thousands of inhabitants, today only the wind whistles through the walls. The former military site near Berlin is now one of the most famous lost places in Germany. After the Soviet troops left in 1994, the buildings of the former military site were left to nature. A paradise, we hope.
Currently slightly lost in the suburbs of Berlin, but back on track... Keep you posted !Read more
Find a Nandu - we did it! Nandus are large ratites that are actually at home in South America - there are now about 500 in Northwest Mecklenburg, in the Schaalsee region. Nandus obviously feel well, the climate suits them, there is enough to eat and no natural enemies - so they have reproduced splendidly. Unbelievable but true.
10 credits for us!Read more
We are right now in Zarrentin, at Stefan's house, from team 114. Soon we will hit the road towards Free Hanseatic cities such as Wismar, Rostock. This is where we will accomplish today's task of the day. Missed Lübeck but who cares, it's our neighbor city, been there done that.
We'll keep you posted!Read more
First stop Hamburg, haha! 😜
Still, this first day was expectedly awesome. Our nameless car (suggestions welcome) did well, so did we. We passed figgelinsche Pässe with beautiful view on Weserbergland. Ended up at Landungsbrücken, somehow dull but most important is nice time with other teams! Not to mention Lena and Johannes visited us , whoop whoop!
No pictures taken, expect polaroid for our roadbook.
Maybe we take the opportunity to hot shower tomorrow morning. Good night!Read more
