I started early, around 8 AM, because it was suppose to get warm again. I started off through the beautiful forest of the Pfaelzer Wald and the whole first ten kilometers were going downhill on a beautiful smooth cycling road.
Sunday morning was the exact opposite from the day before: despite the noise inside and outside the hotel, I woke up refreshed and in a super relaxed mood.
After the breakfast, I packed up my things and wanted to get on the road. But just before I got going, it started to rain – and not only a little. So I put on my rain gear before I cycled to the Deutsche Eck, the point in Koblenz where the Mosel runs into the Rhine river and where the Mosel cycling path starts.
Yesterday was one of the worst days since I started cycling. I already thought in the morning about taking the train to my parents and take a loooooooooooooong break from cycling. There was no specific reason, just a bad day. I thought I would quickly cycle to Koblenz and decide then what I would do.
The weather was OK, april-like with wind again and temperatures, so that I was taking on and off my different jackets constantly.
Although I love Essen and everything seemed to go so well, again I got lost shortly after I found the first promising sign pointing to my first destination “Werden”. I even circled back to the sign and tried again but not a chance to find the follow-up sign. So I decided to cycle to Werden according to my phone, again missing one of those “wonderful” cycle routes.
