I feel great. I feel like I never stopped touring. When we went to Ireland and the UK, it was one big food-fest with very little physical activity to go along with it, and I packed a bunch of weight straight back on that I'd lost in our first weeks of touring. When we got on the bikes in the Isle of Wight, I felt like I was starting all over again - I felt bloated and weak. Boo. We're back in Germany, now, and today was Day 4 of cycling. It was a short day, but I feel like I never stopped touring. I'm able to go each day without issue, my butt hardly hurts, and the Ireland/UK weight is starting to fall back off. Yay!!
We had a short day today. Gabi got a suggestion from her friend to spend some time at the Open-air Museum Keltischer Furstensitz Heuneburg, so we did, and it was fantastic! So interesting to learn the history of these people who had a fairly advanced society in Germany 2500 years ago.
This evening we went from the Zeltplatz into Riedlingen for dinner. Gabi had gone for a swim in the river, and we stopped and picked her up on the way. When we got to Riedlingen, she asked a random local - 77-year-old Jugi - for directions to see something in the town. He came with us, on his Farhhad, and gave us a tour of the town, including the old city wall, and some cool old buildings. We had dinner and bought him a beer, and then, as it was getting dark, he toured us around just a couple more things and we returned to the Zeltplatz. It was quite an amazing and wonderful experience!
