Today, I visited the Zeche Zollverein in Essen which was a coal mine from the 19th century until 1986. These days it’s an open air museum and a place for events and exhibitions. And an excellent place to shoot pictures of industrial motives.
Once again, I started in beautiful sunshine. I cycled from Frecrkenhorst to Warendorf on the 100 Schloesser (=castles)-Route.
After a rather tough start into the day, first some authority “issues” with the cat during breakfast, then an incredible confusing way out of Bielefeld and and almost real mountain (on top is a restaurant, named “Auf’m Berg” (=on the mountain) and the road’s name was Bergstrasse (=mountain road)), the hardest part of the day was already over shortly after 9 AM
The weather forecast predicted strong winds, so I decided to leave early, just in case.
Due to the pessimistic weather forecast and because my friend Sören arrived only today, I decided to also stay a second night in Verden, the horse’s and rider’s town.
Today was a warm, sunny and pretty uneventful day. That’s why I haven’t much to write down. But I shot some nice pictures and let them talk instead. Btw. you can watch them in full size when you click on them – and not only in the small gallery preview 🙂
Also, once again, the SportsTracker app quit on me prematurely and without permission during lunch break…suppose we all get a little lazy these days 😉
After five days of cycling and new surroundings every day, I was ready for some rest and so I spent the day in Bremen – and I liked it :-)))
Hello, hello, hello everybody
today is the first day I don’t have to do anything anymore – and it feels G-O-O-D 😀
It’s only one week before I move out of my apartment and two weeks until my planned start of my tour.
Currently, it is way too cold (for me) to cycle with daytime temperatures around 0°C + (a lot) wind chill leading to felt air temperatures around -5 – -10°C….brrrrrrrrrrrrr….this morning I cycled for 30 minutes to the public order office and afterwards 30 minutes back – and it just wasn’t any fun….
My oh my, how time flies….again two weeks have passed since my last post….
The past two weeks not a lot happened due to exceptional cold weather: -10°C during the day is something we don’t experience here very often, so not a lot is happening outside.
