  • Day1049

    Bindersee, Rollsdorf

    May 11 in Germany ⋅ 🌧 11 °C

    Wow, we thought we were lucky yesterday when we camped on the dandelion speckled green on the edge of Großalmerode, but today's spot is even better! We've parked up on the bank of Bindersee in a meadow of tall grass accessed by a tiny track. A white sign attached to a wooden telephone post reads that bathing is at your own risk - brilliant! A chance for a wild swim!

    The rain had once again been torrential, we put the new antislip mats under the front tyres, hoping there wouldn't be any problems when it came time to leave. It was wet and chilly outside so we spent the rest of the day taking in the tranquil views from inside the warmth and comfort of the van, while Will set about making pizzas for tea. A Grey Heron would occasionaly fly accross the rain rippled surface of the lake, while Great Crested Grebes did a mating dance. The two toned call of a cuckoo was our near constant companion, although we never saw it. While it was light, swallows darted after flying insects and as dusk fell, bats took over from where they left off.

    Thankfully the rain abated overnight and day two brought with it a beautiful blue sky, although still with a chill in the air so we rummaged around in the boot and found our full length wetsuits. We (unsurprisingly) had the whole lake to ourselves. While Vicky acclimatised, Will had a quick dip before donning his wetsuit and we swam out to the middle. Afterwards, we played around underneath a Weeping Willow from which someone had hung a knotted rope. To watch the video on the VnW Travels You Tube channel, click here: https://youtu.be/ngeby_XZ3F4

    It was a wonderful feeling to be in the water under the open sky but it also felt good to step back into the van, get the kettle on and turn the heating up! Will made use of the daylight hours by practicing with Peggy the Drone and trying to fly his kite, although whenever he took hold of the strings, the wind disappeared.

    We finished the day with a three course vegan meal of padrón peppers, cauliflower cheese and a Magnum. We are generally skeptical of imitation products but the cheese sauce tasted good, definitely better than sauces we've made with some german dairy cheeses!

    Auf nach Brücken-Hackpüffel

    May 30 in Germany ⋅ ☀️ 19 °C

    Nachdem wir gestern alles gepackt und die Räder nochmal gecheckt haben, sind wir nach einem ausgiebigen Frühstück pünktlich irgendwann nach 9 Uhr in Leipzig gestartet. Unser Weg führte uns am Luppedamm und südlich durch Halle durch. Nun sitzen wir nach 57 km im Nirgendwo auf einer Bank in einem idyllischen Park vor einer kleinen Kirche. Außer uns ist hier kein Mensch zu sehen... keine Herrentagsausflüger... nix, niemand... herrlich.Read more

    Begin of the skating tour.

    June 1 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 15 °C

    Back on the road again? Yes. First we started in Lutherstadt Wittenberg and then we followed the Elbe cycling route. First stop: Torgau. About 72 km to go. My parents and me, we travel for the next 6 days together until we reach Bad Schandau. Then after a little break for one night at home. A few friends of mine and myself go on an Interrail over Denmark, Norway, Sweden and Finland.Read more

    Magdeburg

    September 24 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C

    Al salir del terminal de buses ya era de noche, el único comité de bienvenida eran unos cuervos graznando en una pequeña plaza. Como una película de terror en una ciudad pequeña con mala iluminación de noche.

    Pudimos tomar el tranvía correcto y encontrar la casa de los Kähne.

    Miri y Felix nos ayudaron con la lavandería y a cambiar el billete de 500€ en el Banco (ver post anterior). Era nuestra última posibilidad durante el viaje.

    Al salir en la mañana aprovechamos de visitar la ciudad, recorrer el parque y dar unas cuantas vueltas antes de volver a reunirnos y cenar juntos.

    La ciudad es hermosa, muy tranquila y con muchas edificaciones antiguas.

    De vuelta a la casa de la familia Kähne, pasamos a una botillería en la esquina. Muy recomendable si alguna vez vienes a Magdeburgo, se llama Getränkequelle Salbke (está en Google Maps). Allí el encargado hablaba lo suficiente de inglés para recomendarnos varias cervezas locales. Además nos regaló cuatro vasos, dos destapadores, y dos cajas para llevar 6 botellas.

    Increíble la buena onda de la gente aquí.

    Según Felix, acá el movimiento de cervezas caseras es relativamente nuevo. Alrededor de unos 3 años. Le expliqué el método Brew in a bag que utilizo para hacer cerveza casera, y que es bastante simple. Quizás Magdeburgo tenga un nuevo cervecero en el barrio.
