Day 2 of hiking in the German forest

June 24, 2020 2 comments

Another 16km today, but much more up and down which was good, because we were covered by the trees and not in open fields too often. It got up to 28C today, so we were happy to be in the shade if the trees.

on the hike, we came across a castle, Riesling vineyards, apple and walnut trees. The green thing sliced open in the photos is a walnut tree.

Hiking Around Schillingen Germany

We hiked today across farmland and forests, on a mostly marked trail for about 5 & 1/2 hours, but over an hour of that was at a pub for lunch. My watch tells me we did about 26000 steps.

2020 Volkswagen e-Golf

We are now the proud owners of an all-electric car! Our 2020 VW e-Golf in a metallic blue with pretty much all the fun features we can get. For us, it is a 2-seater, because as Piper is demonstrating, the back will probably always be set up for the dogs.

Notice the VW emblem in the back lifts up when in reverse, because that’s where the backup camera is located.

Lorie got to drive it out of the dealer’s showroom, which was the first time we drove the car. We drove others to test, but not this specific one since it was in storage somewhere until the day we picked it up.

North Amsterdam

We checked out North Amsterdam today and discovered a number of cute neighborhoods and open space. We might need to check out the dog parks there one of these weekends. It’s much less crowded than our neighborhood.
