Today, Eddie, my navigation device let me down, just when I arrived at the starting point of the route Berlin-Leipzig (in reverse). I also lost sight of the cycling path signs, so I cycled around for 90 minutes in an almost correct direction (North instead of North East) but made approximaly 5 instead of 15 k progress. Because of the time-out of Eddie, I don’t have a track of the route today…if you want to have the regular track, you can download it from Radweg Berlin-Leipzig (please note that this is an external link, so I cannot guarantee that this link will always be working).

Btw. by now, Eddie is working again….just press 25 secs the on/off button and – everything is gonna be alright… 😉

A part of the university block

the Gewandthaus (concert hall) with the fontain in front

Calories free ice cream 🙂

the Thomas church

the town hall (I think)

the courthouse

there are so many parks all around in Leipzig 🙂

And I visited the wild boars in the (free) animal park

Sinwell tower

I decided to stay in Nuremberg one more day to actually see the sights of the city.
But since I wasn’t so fond of my hotel (door banging and shouting late in the evening, the broken shower head holder, a general weird feeling,…) I decided to move to another hotel. Breakfast was not included and so I headed over to the next hotel shortly after 8 AM.
There, I could leave my luggage and the bike and made my way on foot to the castle.

I walked in the old castle ditch which could have been really nice since it’s green and in the shade but, unfortunately, there was a lot garbage lying around, I even watched a rat passing me quite relaxed in broad daylight and didn’t feel especially safe and secure….but as I mentioned, it was in the shade and not too hot yet – and I made it to the castle safely 🙂

A beautiful day

I used the first cooler day to cycle to the small town Oehringen with it’s huge palace garden.

It was a beautiful day, the apple and plum trees are (almost) ready for harvesting and I enjoyed the time being out and about again. In the end, the “not so hot” day, turned into “still pretty warm” (around 26°C) and I was quite happy to be home for a cool shower 🙂
