    Dresden

    June 4, 2016 in Germany

    Dresden
    Arrived after a very long bus trip at 6:25 am. Dusseldorf train went fine but the us was late(25 min) & it didn't stop in its allotted place so we had to race for it. Then the drivers wouldn't let us take our day packs on board- I unloaded food, iPad , phone in black purse& S brought the water bottles. After we saw others with bags bigger on board. How annoying. Not much sleep. Early walk around, found hotel& left big bags. Had breakfast in a cafe attached to the Hilton.so toilets were free. Went to markets - all pottery& bought 2 small things then raced for our boat trip- 2+ hours. Very pleasant with a local beer.
    Musical festival on today/ night so I think dinner will be taken care of.
    After a nap and shower we headed off for something to do- S was keen to go to the Grosse Garden. This was quite a walk but worth the effort. Lovely huge trees around grassy areas and a palace where a wedding was occurring. There was a large fountain of course in a long rectangular pool , a huge double driveway leading to the palace from the road. We wandered further and in the garden 2 small trains ran. A cafe also was there & we ate spicy chicken wings & not so nice fish n chips with a drink,- the sign was on the beer handle but we didn't get beer but a strawberry drink. On the way back to the old town we saw 2 squirrels - reddy brown ones, and 2 cute birds. In the old town there were still musicians playing their brass instruments. We had a coffee & the girl didn't offer me the change so I guess she got a tip. Tonight we have a bottle of wine to drink from Beaune France because Stephen doesn't want to take it any further in his pack. We will try and sleep in before our train trip(which is short) to Bac Schandau for next week's walk in Saxony.

    Rathen to Könighstein

    June 8, 2016 in Germany

    Bad Schandau to Rathen
    After a sumptuous breakfast of muesli, scrambled eggs, cheese, fruits and croissant we left the hotel but was just raining. Umbrella up and zipped off pant legs ,we were off. A steep climb and the sun reappeared so we were sweating madly. Great views from the Galgenberg plateau where wheat & some kind of beans were growing. Walked to a great view from a restaurant/ pension at Brand where we had a dark beer each.Walked through forests to an area for lunch called Gautschgrotte , shady sandstone rocks all around us. This is abseiling country .Instructions were a little confusing when we arrived at Hohnstein and after searching we eventually found the green on white marker. We had a lovely day with all the green moss, lots of fungi ,very tall straight trees. Got a bit confused by incorrect literature but some girls were going our way and together we matched up the map to our route. Climbed a metal staircase between cliffs to a nice view across to Hohnstein and its castle at mount Hockstein before descending into the forest again & to a lake called Aselsee, followed this to Rathen and our accommodation . Walked to shops and the ferry , had icecreams.Dinner to have in the hotel restaurant tonight after our 17 km walk.Read more

    Ankunft in Melsungen

    June 2, 2017 in Germany

    Tagesstrecke 69 km. Wir sind im ältesten Gasthaus Melsungens untergekommen. Ein sehr schönes Fachwerkhaus "Zur Traube“. Die Fahrräder dürfen im angebauten Schuppen übernachten. Der Wettergott hat es auch heute wieder gut mit uns gemeint, und uns Sonne und sanften Wind beschert. Das angekündigte Gewitter ist noch nicht angekommen. Jetzt erstmal ein schön kühles Ankunftbier.

  • Day1

    Um 15.30 in Pyrmont gestartet. Erstes Ferienwochende in NRW, entsprechend voll ist die Autobahn. Knapp 3 Stunden sind wir gefahren, dann verließ uns die Lust. Richtung Oberaula sind wir von der A7 runter, beim Golfplatz haben wir ein einsames, ruhiges Plätzchen gefunden für die Nacht.

    Kurzer Halt in Fritzlar

    June 20, 2017 in Germany

    Start der Reise

    October 23, 2017 in Germany

    Der Wecker ging um kurz nach 6. Eigentlich genug Zeit um bis 8:37 Uhr in Kassel Wilhelmshöhe Hbf zu sein.....eigentlich. Ein umgekippter LKW auf der Autobahn verbrauchte leider schon den gesamten Puffer. Das konnte auch Timo mit dem Polo nicht mehr rausholen. Dadurch verpassten wir dann den geplanten Zug 😕 ein Kaffee später sitzen wir jetzt aber im ICE nach Frankfurt
