East Germany

Back On The Road Again – With A New Style

Global Mobile Family - new Style 2

After a year of being home we’re off on a tour of Eastern Germany. This time we decided to keep it within our own country but have six bikes with us. Moses and Caspar are pedaling full time and Turis and Herbie also get some runs out.

Here we are – very happy – in the bike carriage on the train to Eisenach having pulled off a couple of manic changes – one seven minute platform change and one no lift scenario…

Over half way up – decision just made – make it to the top!

Hats Off

The energy keeps flowing – how do you get four boys to stand in line for a photo? With a hat throwing competition on the Wartburg.

More of Up

This time on horrendous loose stones or cobbles towards the “Hohe Sonne” (high sun) – the name of the hill!

Rest Day

Breakfast at our camping spot by the lake and some boating activities to cool off after the killer hill yesterday.

Same Same but Different

Two tunnels – the first: the wild variety made of trees and the second: a manmade station tunnel.

Flutter Flutter!

Or not in the case of this little blue butterfly – who hitched a lift with Mama.

Matchu Pampa

Mud and stone bombs and swimming in The Hörsel – would you believe that an hour later we witnessed trees falling in a freak storm.

Asleep in the Hay

Not quite yet – bedtime stories first and getting used to not wriggling too much or getting prickled or tickled by the hay!

Assault Course

Assault Course

The firemen left some fallen trees along the cycle way for the boys to negotiate. Here the boys clearing enough branches away to weave their way through the triple fallen tree tunnel (Mama and Papa had to make more of a detour and push their bikes and trailers through a neighbouring field). The storm did a lot of damage as we counted nineteen fallen trees along the way today.
