I made my first YouTube video. It’s pictures and videos in one, music by Lynyrd Skynyrd.
The next videos will certainly be better, but every beginning is just hard 🙂 If you want to see this:
Italia, what can you say, people speak a little Italian here, otherwise German. There are dumplings to eat, wheat beer etc. Not a man with a moustache, a chef’s apron and wildly arguing with hands. Not a woman who throws dishes around calling out an Italian man’s name. All right, it’s still South Tyrol. Only when the Alps are over will I surely meet these people.
First impression is therefore not really Italian. Still, it’s great (like almost everything I see, I guess I need glasses). There are cycle paths, great views, everything is in bloom, the sun is shining, everything is wonderful. Except for my Komoot app, which says I ride in a mountain.
Finally after many descents I arrived in Brixon. The only camping site was closed, but at a gas station I received a tip from a guest that there was still a camping site before Brixon. Driving there, showering, eating, etc.
In the morning in the village Sigisweiler I could see from my bed that the tent was not wet outside. Wow! When I wanted to get up, it started to rain. In the rain I packed up the tent and drove off trembling with cold.
I was not physically fit, I recovered a whole day in the beautiful Sauerland village. Great air and beautiful views, plus sunshine and the knowledge that the weather is finally getting better.
Knees smeared with tiger balm, later walk a bit to stay in action, I did really well.
Here we go! I can almost not believe it or rather not realize it at all. It’s still kind of hard for me to do all this. I will really process it in the next days or weeks.
The goodbye group is small, as many also have to work. Yet I have already received shouts from many people. I’m beginning to realize that this could be a bit more of a project than just going to Gelsenkirchen, well, wait and see.
My first destination is about 100 km away (really great without a year of training), I don’t think I can do it, but I still drive:)
The page is not 100% ready yet, but until the start (Easter) it should be complete.
Under the menu item “Preparation” you can see what you (or I) should pay attention to before such a trip.
Of course, the “Equipment” is not yet complete, because there are many things to be added or it is not yet listed. During the trip, there will surely be some more stuff added or sent back home.
That’s all I can write right now. It starts at the beginning of April and then all the photos, experiences etc. are added, so patience…
