    Erster Teil der Tagesaufgabe

    October 9 in Germany ⋅ ☁️ 13 °C

    In alten Tagen, lange vor den Zeiten der Kartographierung, war der Titisee größer als der Schluchsee. Die neidischen Schluchseeer kamen daher des nachts mit Ochsenkarren zum Titisee und füllten ihre Fässer, um sie im Schluchsee zu leeren. Unsere Aufgabe wsr es nun, dies rückgängig zu machen und einen offenen Eimer mit 5 Liter Wasser aus dem Schluchsee in den Titisee zurückzuführen. Die 5 Liter haben wir dann ab jetzt im Gepäck. Nun heißt es also einen Gang runter schalten. 💦Read more

    Tag 2 // Am Ende der Kräfte

    September 5, 2019 in Germany ⋅ 🌧 15 °C

    Am Ende standen 160km auf dem Tacho, bei etwas unter 8h Fahrtzeit und 10h Reisezeit ein echter Kraftakt. Aber das hatten wir ja so gewollt, auch wenn es an Ende nicht mehr für einen Blog Eintrag gereicht hat. Daher holen wir das heute morgen nach.
    Die Route führte uns an den Rhein bis Kehl wo eben diesen überquerten um in Straßburg an den Rhein-Rhone Kanal zu wechseln. Danach folgte ein 60km Anschnitt der nur geradeaus führte, immer am Kanal entlang. Durch die Bäume rechts und links konnten wir sowohl im Schatten als auch windgeschützt einige Kilometer absolvieren. Beim weiterhin vorherrschenden Südwind und strahlendem Sonnenschein durchaus angenehm.

    Ab Breisach hatten wir schlussendlich noch 20km auf Radwegen zum Etappenziel bevor wir bei Bratkartoffeln wieder Kräfte tanken konnten.

    Heute morgen regnet es etwas, soll aber bald besser werden, so dass wir uns beim Frühstück Zeit lassen werden um dann im Trockenen Richtung Feldberg auf zu brechen.

    The Black Forest

    July 18, 2019 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C

    We all know that the Black Forest is famous for its gateau, cuckoo clocks, thick woodlands, grassy meadows, timber farmhouses and waterfalls. We wanted to see if it is true.

    The area is 160km from top to bottom, and the village of St. Peter, in particular Camping Steingrubenhof, in the south, was our base for some exploring.

    A trip to Triberg ticked off many items on our checklist in one go. The journey there, on sweeping, curving roads, gave us a great introduction to the fantastic scenery for which the area is famous with rolling meadows and lush forest all around. Once in Triberg we visited Germany's highest waterfalls which drop a total of 163m and used the occasion to try out one of the special features on the phone camera to get a romantic photo of the waterfall in action. As a busy tourist destination, there were plenty of shops selling cuckoo clocks but we managed to resist. That wasn't the case however at Café Shäfer, where the original 1915 recipe for Black Forest gateau is still used today. Chocolate sponge cake, layered with cherries, brandy and lots of cream slipped down a treat and got the thumbs up from us both.

    Our visit coincided with the St. Peter Summer Concert where we were treated firstly to orchestral music from the local group of approx. 50 musicians, playing from a repertoire of both classical and modern tunes and then local rock band, Blackwood Mary, who kept us all entertained for 3 hours with their excellent performance of rock and country rock covers. All this together with local wine, beer and food made for a great Saturday night out.

    Nearby Freiburg is a large, sunny, university town with thousands of students whizzing abouts on bicycles trying to avoid the traffic and trams. It is also renowned for its annual 2000 hours of sunshine, which we experienced in temperatures above 30°C! The medieval old town is full of gabled townhouses, cobblestone streets and canal-side cafés. The impressive 11th-century cathedral with its filigree 116m-high spire and numerous gargoyles is located in the market square and surrounded by elegant houses and shops showcasing the towns rich history. We could have spent longer wandering around but the high temperatures and tourists decided us to return back up the hill to our campsite where a cooling breeze was very welcome.

    Our trip only explored the southern part of the area but what we have seen has made us want to return to see more.

    Oct 6 - Exploring the Black Forest

    October 6, 2019 in Germany ⋅ 🌧 5 °C

    Today’s adventure found us docked in Breisack (pronounced Bry-zack) in Germany. The day was another cool, overcast one with a forecast of rain. Bundle up and pack an umbrella has become our mantra.

    After breakfast, we went by coach for about an hour to Freiburg. Our guide, Gerlinda, told us about the Baden area that we were passing through. The land here is very fertile because of past volcanic activity. We passed fields of corn (for animal feed and ethanol production), millet, pumpkins, mustard and tobacco. There are a lot of walnut trees in this area so walnut bread and walnut cake are local specialities.

    Our destination was Schauinslandbahn - a cable car that took us high up into the Black Forest. The Black Forest got its name from the Romans who came here 2000 years ago. The forest is so densely wooded, that from a distance, it looks black, not green, and foreboding and menacing. The area is ripe with tales about goblins and dwarfs and gnomes and witches that inhabit the forest. We traveled up through light clouds and mist to the top. Our activity was a 4-km walk - all downhill - on good trails. The valleys are dotted with little farms and villages, and the fields are inhabited by contented-looking cows and sheep and goats.

    We stopped at a little house called Schniederlihof. The house is over 400 years old, and until 1966, belonged to the same family that made its living selling dairy products (milk, cheese, yogurt). At that time eight siblings living in the house, all in their 20’s, finally recognized the futility of making a living there. They sold the house and land to the local community and then moved to the local village. The house is now a little museum that showcases the life of Black Forest farmers. The man who tends the museum is a descendant of the original family. We toured the parlour, the bedroom, the kitchen (with Black Forest ham smoking in the attic) and the barn. We were rewarded for our walking efforts with Black Forest Cake and hot tea. We hadn’t actually burned the equivalent number of calories, but when in the Black Forest…….

    Back at the ship, we actually had to wait a while to board. We had been double-bunked with another ship. It was time for it to sail, so our ship had to pull out, wait for the other ship to sail, and then pull back in. There was our captain again, making sure the gangplank was secure. He is definitely a hands-on captain.

    The entertainment for this afternoon was called “Four Hands over 50 Bells”. It was a duo who played tunes, both traditional and modern, on cow bells. It was a delightful, upbeat show. Promptly on cue, we sailed at 4:00 p.m. Next stop - Basel, Switzerland. That will be the sixth country of this cruise.

    Titisee ohne Kaka

    August 7 in Germany ⋅ ☀️ 23 °C

    Die letzten Stunden in Straßburg werden noch schnell mit dem Verzehr eines gigantischen Tacos am Ufer der Ill (nicht römisch 3 sondern ILL) verbracht. Danach wird es Zeit wieder die Bundesrepublik zu betreten. Drei Nächte bei den Franzosenköppen sind auch mehr als genug. Nächster Halt: Titisee. Wie zu erwarten war, sind die Parkplätze und Liegeflächen rund um den See maßlos überfüllt. Wir haben jedoch riesiges Glück als uns ein netter Herr seinen Parkplatz inklusive des Parktickets überlässt. Um das überfüllte Strandbad zu umgehen, werfen wir unsere Decken und Handtücher einfach auf das Kurgelände direkt neben dem Strandbad. Laut Warnschildern soll man das angeblich nicht, genau so wenig wie vom Kurgelände in den See zu gehen, aber das scheint die 100 anderen Urlauber auch nicht zu interessieren. Hier schweben wir in nostalgischen Erinnerungen an 1995, das letzte Mal als Julita da war und an irgendwann, falls Achimus mal hier war. Im Wasser schwimmend und an Land würfelnd verbringen wir unseren Tag. Um für unsere Nacht im Auto fri(s)ch zu sein, duschen wir kostenlos draußen im Strandbad. Auch die öffentliche Toilette am für die Nacht auserchorenen Parkplatz kann sich sehen lassen - wozu eigentlich noch teure Hotels buchen? Lediglich der nächtliche Klogang über eine nasse Wiese bei gefühlten -12°C könnte mehr Luxus vertragen.Read more
