Locals In Berlin

June 21 - Berlin Our final roaming day. Time to see another side of Berlin. Time for an authentic Berlin experience. Time to roam away from the tourist hot spots and see how the locals do it. Time to see another face of this city. We set out this morning, with my cousin Lisa, to... Continue Reading →

Imagining In A Different Way

June 20 - Berlin I think it’s been established that I am prone, at times, to an overactive imagination. I create stories in my head for things I see and whether it be forests or the possible scenarios surrounding an otherwise benign pair of gumboots sitting beside a lake, I have a tendency to invent...

Gotta Get Me Some Birkenstocks

June 19 - Potsdam to Berlin Well, I think that was the hottest ride we’ve had so far. It was a scorcher! Don’t get me wrong, I’m not complaining, this hot weather is every shade of brilliant, but there was no ladylike glow happening, it was full on sweat dripping hot! We rode out of...

A Lesson In Forests

We collected the all important laundry from reception, where it was waiting for... Continue Reading →

On Form Again

June 14 - Nixenbad to Torgau We were on form today. Back to our signature style. Some wrong turns, plans that didn’t go to plan, an unexpected pit stop. Just so us. Oh, and just letting you know in advance, the following story of today includes many references to the most compelling of subjects…laundry.  Another... Continue Reading →

That’s A Bit More Like It

June 13 - Radebeul to Nixenbad Ta-ta trains. Be seein’ ya rails. So long stations. Today we could hit the pedals again and wheel on our way, under our own puff.  When we set off, there was just one, then two little drops of rain under a grey and cloudy sky. It was cooler and... Continue Reading →
