Wash day!!May 17, 2017 in Germany ⋅
The small pleasures are the best . Field-fresh strawberries direct from the producers and wash day!
Thankfully we survived the night at the scout campsite. It was a lovely location but the open hut that smelt like it hadnt been used in years was slightly creepy. (I've watched too many "cabin in the woods" style horror films!). Its still fairly cold at night and we're waking up in the morning with so much condensation in the tent that we need to dry everything out before packing it..or at least stopping somewhere nice (like the palace park in Kempten yesterday) to dry it out. Hopefully its just the seasons and that it'll get drier as we get into summer. (Peter is finding it very amusing to blame sweatiness and incontinence for the daily need to dry our the tent...it's not!) We've changed the orientation that we sleep in the tent to see if it helps ventilation, heads at the door end, as well as spanning a bungee at the back of the tent to hold it aloft somewhat. Trials of the road eh!
The day has also come for me to buy some "practical" sandals to cycle in! Acquired in the children's department of Kern shoe shop in Schongau. Peter is already encouraging me to wear them with socks 😀Read more
