The first task of the day was to sent a letter back home… I must say: Deutsche Post has outsourced some of their shop to food shops: bad idea. Everything go too long. Or do I see too much optimising … Read More »

The day started in the forest at 25° (!). Did I slept well? Let’s say I was tired enough to sleep at least a bit. After a short coffee and some peanut butter bread, I head back to the channel … Read More »
A great technical day: seeing the lift that lift up/down the 6000 tons heavy and 100m long Bassin over 38m. We had been recommend by Achim as well to look at the Kaiser Willhelm: a Steam boat from the 1908. … Read More »

First of all: the GPS recorder didn’t record all the day… with 1000m climbing and some 80km We hadn’t planned to go to Höxter but another camping which seems to have been a fake or so.
Quite a bit astonishing… today was a more or less just cycling day. Farm lands and churches. We were lucky to one get some water from a farmer… and had quite peaceful landscapes. Not Hirn Special neither. And arriving at … Read More »
Little game: which one is the mirror image?

After a night with the ships roaring up and down the thunder, we started the day with lots of side wind. And some interesting wine… or milk? 😉
The night was a bit short since there was some noise on the camping and we wanted to be ontime at our meeting. Light loaded ship 😉
And cooking before get some good rest.
