After two months of holiday from the first half of my cycling adventure, I started a separate stint to also tick-off Hessia from my list of federal German states.

Hessia is located so centrally that I didn't find an elegant way to include it on my tour otherwise.
I also have two weeks time before an appointment at the dentist, so this seemed to be the optimal use of the waiting time :-)
On my first day, I followed my "birth" river, the Kocher, which also runs through Schwaebisch Hall, my home town. Until now, I never cycled very far along it's river bank and I must say: it is BEAUTIFUL there and I will certainly come back more often :-)
At the end of today's trip, I crossed over the ridge to access the second river of my journey, the Jagst.

Note: since my  phone gave  up saving my tracks reliably and I also didn't have internet access during most of the trip, I'm using gps tracks from tourist websites.


Ready for the next stint

This used to be a winery: now, it's more of an open air tree-ery :-)

The famous Kochertal bridge

Country of hills...

...and castles

The famous castle of Jagsthausen where Goethe's Goetz von Berlichingen lived in real life
