Dirk, the bringer of good weather, came from Bonn and blessed us with sun today. My ‘rest day’ was a gentle meander downhill with Dirk to Tübingen through a beautiful forest. The rain started the moment Dirk got on the train home. I hope he joins me again.. 🙂

Tomorrow my trip continues with luggage. Today was with a naked bike to the castle at Herrenberg, and then through the forest to Tübingen. I found it hard to believe that we were high enough to continue downhill all the way to Tübingen. It was wonderful, rolling through the peaceful and sunny forest. Birds were circling above, and I saw a fox bound away into the forest. We also passed a monastery just before Tübingen.

I’m glad that I can see one of my best friends, Cristina, before I leave Europe. She has just arrived in Ehningen after a business trip. What a good reason to have a rest day today!
Also, thanks Radwelt Ehningen for helping me out with a broken screw on my Ortlieb pannier!
