  • Day105

    Black Forest ridge above Hofsgrund

    October 9, 2016 in Germany

    The morning's rain and dark sky were unpromising but they were to bring an unexpected surprise! The terrain became wilder and as we climbed above 1000m the rain turned to sleet, then snow! Proper big snowflakes! It was 'Narniaesque' with dark towering trees becoming coated. At some points we were surrounded by Christmas trees sugared with white snow. Vicky was driving and was so excited she had to pull over and get out to dance!

    We repeatedly passed a distinct snow line as the changing altitude caused the temperature to rise and fall. The town of Freiberg had rain rather than snow when we went in search of some more Black Forest Gateau. The old town area was beautiful, with the forest rising up behind a square that contained a red sandstone church and rococo architecture. The gateau was more artisan than yesterday's, with a different sort of spirit flavouring the cherries. It went down all too quickly and we drove on to find a place to stop for the night.

    There had been lots of parking along the forest routes and we got the impression the area would have been packed had we visited in summer. After driving farther than we'd planned, to investigate a string of laybys we'd seen on the sat nav, we doubled back to one on a ridge at 1174m above sea level with an incredible view.

    The joy on people's faces as they pulled up and looked around them wasn't something that we'd seen evidence of in city centres, no matter how beautiful the rococo architecture!

    We were able to walk 50m to the other side of the ridge to watch the sun set then get up early the next morning to watch the sun rise from the van while we listened to Melanie's 'Baby Day'! As an extra treat the temperature dropped to 0°C overnight and the snow stayed to reflect the early amber rays and crackle underfoot when we got out.

    Abendstimmung auf der Autobahn

    August 25, 2016 in Germany

    Die deutsche Autobahn musste wegen einem Unfall gesperrt werden. Wir standen lange im Stau... Doch wir hatten keinen Grund trübsal zu blasen, wir haben ja Ferien und keinen Stress 😊

    Titisee - Neustadt

    March 31 in Germany

    In my opinion there wasn't a better way to finish this great hiking day with the sunset at the Titisee.
    Even if it got a bit chilly after the sun set I enjoyed the time there a lot. Especially because the ducks where so entertaining! 😄

    Fun fact: I new the name Titisee from stories I heard in my childhood. I actually thought I was made up because I found that it sounded to funny. However, it turned out that it is real lake and I've recently been there 😊Read more

    Italy to Germany via Switzerland

    April 18, 2017 in Germany

    An early start (8am) steady progress through intricate and twisting Italian autostrada. Then came holdups:
    - malfunctioning toll booths
    - contraflow through the St Gotthard tunnel
    - a breakdown round Basel
    all with accompanying queues

    Weather before the big tunnel C. 13c. In the tunnel 32c, after the tunnel 0c and a snow storm

    Happy break of luck was finding a guesthouse in Mullheim with the minimum of effort.Read more

    Sept 04 Heidelburg

    September 4, 2017 in Germany

    Visited the ruins of the Heidelburg University. Very informative guide with wonderful stories. We were taken to the shopping street in Heidelberg. Bought some wine. Back to the ship for a late lunch at 3.30. Went for a walk in Speyer. A beautiful little town beside Heidelburg.

    On the way to the Black Forest

    September 16, 2017 in Germany

    Check out the stork in its nest in Pic 5. Also, the story with Pic 6 is that there,was,this,stag that all of the hunters,had been chasing for years. One day, he was trapped at the edge of the cliff on the right side of this pic. Supposedly, he jumped across to the other side and escaped. So they put up a statue for him.

    Tag 9 // Fühlen sich so Ruhetage an?

    August 28, 2016 in Germany

    Bei wiedermal starkem Gegenwind (wir wissen ja inzwischen wie sich das anfühlt) haben wir die heutigen 70km absolviert.

    Aus der auf dem Papier "einfachen Überführungsetappe" wurde so ein zäher Tagesabschnitt.

    Den Tag lassen wir jetzt bei Oma ausklingen und legen nochmal die Beine hoch, bevor wir morgen Deutschland verlassen. Dann werden wir auch die ersten Tausend Kilometer vollmachen.
