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┬ásafely ­čÖé

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 ­čÖé

Summer time

Today, I’m already two weeks back at my parents’ place and the whole time it had been hot like the kind of summer everybody wishes for in wintertime ­čśë Therefore, it was also too hot to continue my cycling adventure through Germany.

To keep me at least a little busy, I have some dentist’s appointments lined up with some repairs which were due anyway this year.

Last Tuesday, I had my root channel filling renewed and was more or less out of order for the following two days.

But on Saturday morning, I went to our lake around the corner, the Starkholzbacher See, with my parents and was instantly hooked again.
