    Tag3 Jokobs Hof in Beelitz

    August 31 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    Nach einem verregneten Tag gestern durften wir heute bei Sonnenschein aufstehen. Die Sonne begleitete uns auch noch den ganzen Tag. Gerade an der ersten Station für heute an den Beelitzer Heilstätten entstanden so tolle Aufnahmen und Eindrücke. Ein geschichtlich sehr interessanter Ort und zugleich immer wieder aufs Neue beeindruckend wie die Natur sich früher oder später ihren Platz zurück erkämpft. Dies war auf jeden Fall einen Besuch wert. Am Parkplatz wieder angekommen ging es dann online auf Schlafplatzsuche. Keine 10km entfernt haben wir dann über Landvergnügen "Jakobs Hof" gefunden den wir nach kurzem Telefonat auch direkt angesteuert haben. Hier gab es dann erst einmal Kaffee mit frischer Wassermelone aus dem Hofladen. Später dann ging es in das Hofrestaurant indem wir königlich speisen durften. Jetzt genießen wir den Sonnenuntergang und überlegen wo es morgen hingeht.Read more

    October 1, 2019 in Germany ⋅ 🌧 13 °C

    Wir haben tief und fest geschlafen und sind ausgeruht in den Tag gestartet. Das Frühstücksbuffet im Hotel Europa überforderte uns völlig. Einfach lecker! Rührei, Lachs, Speck, feine Brötli, Knüsper-Früchte Müsli, Gurke, Mozzarella, Tomaten, Pesto, würziger Weichkäse, Streichwurst, Früchte und Kaiserschmarrn und diverses süsses Gebäck... von uns gibts 5 Sterne! Liana und Andrin entschieden sich für Cornflakes😂
    Unsere Fahrt nach Potsdam klappte Heute wieder tip top. Nach 4 Stunden Fahrtzeit bezogen wir unser Familienzimmer und gingen gleich los ins Städchen. Potsdam grenzt an die Stadt Berlin. Das Schloss Sanssouci war einst die Sommerresidenz Friedrichs des Großen, dem ehemaligen preussischen König. Ein wunderbarer Park liegt dem Schloss zu Füssen. Sehr schön! Sonst ist Potsdam nicht sooo spannend. Ein "kleines" Brandenburger Tor am Luisenplatz schmückt den Eingang zur Fussgängerzone. Flanieren am Abend und fein Essen geht auch hier wunderbar. Die Bäuchlein sind voll mit Thai Curry, Sommerrollen und Glasnudelsuppe... so schnarcht es sich am besten, vor allem bei Thöm und Liana😀 Andrin und ich sind daher noch wach....
    Morgen gehts nach Hamburg, juhuiiiii!

    Just a regular Monday morning

    September 2, 2019 in Germany ⋅ ☁️ 15 °C

    Things bike touring and construction have in common:

    -hi vis clothing and head protection required
    -long, grueling days
    - you get up ridiculously early but end up running late anyway
    -the tool you just used isn't where you left it
    - you're too tired to do anything but drink a beer and pass out at the end of the day
    -no good reason to bother with clean clothes
    -people tell you not to wear headphones but sometimes you do it anyway
    -everything hurts, ibuprofen only kind of helps
    - your bag is heavy and filled with stuff you dont use but there's still something you left at home that you need
    -coffee is necessary
    - you're constantly exposed to the elements but the only real excuse to stop is lightning
    -Sense of accomplishment clouded by pain
    -You want to wash your hands at break but there's nowhere to do it
    -"i really hope that giant truck sees me"
    - you waited too long to put on sunblock
    - you're not going as fast as you think you are
    - it's hard to tell if you're really tan or just covered in dirt

    Ok I'll stop now. Cause i shouldn't be wasting time on my phone. Hey, that's another one!

    My home for the evening is (apparently) known for its pickles. Specifically for the gherkins.

    They take them like, REAL serious cause they're the best gherkins in the world or something. Hey, we all have our thing!

    Obviously i had to try one of these things.

    It was pretty good, nice and juicy and full of necessary electrolytes, everything a pickle should be...but I still think Andrew makes them better.

    September 1, 2019 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 28 °C

    The Spree Forest is a UNESCO-recognized biosphere reserve area, recognized for its fragile wetland areas and alpine forests. I spent the better part of two days riding through what felt like a magical natural wonderland. It was lovely. The trees smelled exactly like a pine-scented air freshener, and the tributaries meandering through the wetlands were beautiful enough to make me get over the fact that I had to carry my bike up and down multiple pedestrian bridges since the whole place is basically a bunch of islands separated by tiny rivers. In fact, the area used to be exclusively traveled by punts, which, in my understanding, are European canoes. I saw many of them, and they look like they would have be difficult to get a bike on, so I guess I got off easy.

    I was really hoping to see an otter, but I had to settle for swans, which are pretty fucking majestic I guess. I looked at my phone later and had (if I had to guess) many hundreds of pictures of swans and trees. I narrowed it down to one of each, cause ain't nobody got time for that

    Except me, obviously
    All I got is time to be the tree-and-swan-arazzi
    I was always meant to be

    (I have clearly been spending too much time alone. I'll show myself out now...)

    fck afd

    September 1, 2019 in Germany ⋅ ☀️ 29 °C

    The power of tagging is amazing. No wonder it's criminalized.

    I was planning on stopping in the next town for lunch, but on my way in, I saw two AFD tags, right on the bike lane. AFD, or the Alternative for Deutschland party, is Germany's new and quickly-growing extremely conservative party. They are German nationalists. Anti-immigrant, anti-feminist and anti-Muslim.

    Just like that, I felt chilled and decided not to eat there because it felt unsafe.

    I know even if I met an AFD member, just like a Trump supporter they'd be capable of a normal conversation and not just outright attack me. But it doesn't matter. The tagging was effective, and I understood that this place was not for me.

    It reminds me of when Andrew and I rode into Maine from Quebec, and literally the first house after the border crossing had a GIANT Trump sign.

    It's about sending a message.

    Conversely, seeing open anti-fascist and anti-AFD graffiti makes me feel welcome. It gives me some peace to know that there are people out there who are not willing to silently stand by.

    July 19, 2017 in Germany ⋅ ☀️ 25 °C

    Took the train out to Potsdam then a hop on off bus around the area. Potsdam is where all the summer palaces are much of which was in East Germany and many of then had been turned into the KGB head quarters. Potsdam is also the place where the meeting between England (Winstin Churchill), USA and Russia took place in 1945 to decide what the future of Germany would be and Berlin (and Germany) was devided into the East (under Russia) and the west ( under the US and England) Today they are restored and opened to the public. Einstein also had a summer home here before the war. There is still a great deal of rebuilding and restoration happening within Berlin as well.Read more

    Wittenberge, Stadt

    July 13 in Germany ⋅ ☀️ 19 °C

    Über Wittenberge kann man viel berichten, was man selbst recherchieten kann.
    Wir folgen dem "grünen Weg" und finden so viele intetessante Orte. So zum Beispiel die vielen restaurierten Backsteingebäude, welche einen besonderen Charme ausstrahlen. Die hübschen Restaurants und Biergärten - wo es nicht nur Bier gibt - haben auch ihren Reitz. Besonders beeindruckte uns die grandiose Aussicht bei diesem schönen Wetter vom Rathausturm aus.
    Nach einer Siesta an der Elbe essen wir vorzüglich im Restaurant "Germania" und bummeln gemütlich am alten Zollhaus vorbei in unsere "Stube"

    Zonder zorgen

    July 11 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

    Hoe luxe is je leven als je je zomerpaleis Zonder Zorgen kan noemen? Frederik de Grote kon dat blijkbaar... Leuk om het wereldberoemde Sanssouci te bekijken. De fietsroute was ingewikkeld, geregeld liep het fietspad uit op een mul zandpad.Read more
