Weather was perfect. +25 and and just a little windy.
Helping point near Mainz.
I was hungry and made a stop at Lidl. Which was closed for some reason. At least I have a picture of 6 wheels car.
Later I found another shop where bought some food and orange beer.
Soon road become much better.
There are loads independent wine yards at this area.
Not a very interesting town.
I cycle a bit more and decided to stop for a litle brake.
Temperature raised to +30C.
Time for my beer.
I bought this beer only because I liked a cans colour.
Beer had awful orange taste. Never gonna buy it again.
My shadow cycling to Barcelona too.
Some time later I was at Worms.
Time was nearly 6pm and I had another 2 hours before meeting Elizabeth.
So I made a little tour around the city.
There are not as many tourists attractions at the city.
Yellow truck is the one of them.
Old telephone box. Also yellow.
Monument to the king?
This is almost everything what I found here.
Seeing pretty much everything I went to the train station to met Elizabeth.
I watched sun set.
And at 8pm Elizabeth arrived.
She really helped to me that day as she was the only one person who replied to my requests at Couchsurfing website. And I was very happy that I don't need to stay at my tent.
Next day early morning I continued my journey to Barcelona.
My next stop was Heidelberg. Little but very old city 60 or 70 km from Warms.
Weather was very hot that day. +30 maybe even more.
This is Mannheim. Large city but not as interesting for tourists and me as Heidelberg.
This is the central park.
Was so hot that day and I was so tired that I found a very nice spot at the park and had a nap for a 2 hours.
Anyway meeting was only at 5.30pm and I still had a loads of time.
After a short nap I continued cycling to Heidelberg.
I passed caravan park outside the city.
Never seen so many power lines at one place.
I still had to cycle another 17 km to the Heidelberg, but I couldn't. I was filling exhausted. |That was a one of the hardest days from the long time.
I found a bench near the river and slept for another hour.
Than I had to take a ferry to the other side of the river. Paid 0.50 euro.
Graffiti work at progress.
So time later I was at Heidelberg. City I liked a lot. Very old and beautiful. I found a place where the couchsurfing meeting was. People I met there were very friendly and interesting. Everybody were telling they story's and sharing travelling experience.
I was needed a time for rest. And a next day I walked around the city on my own.
Unfortunately Martin couldn't go with me because a few month ago he broked his leg and still recovering.
First I wanted go to the castle.
The one on top of the hill.
To get to the Castle people needed to walk 370 steps up.
I was ready accomplish this task.
Good view already:)
That's enough for me.
Sometimes it's so hard being a tourist.
I do it next time. Maybe when I be 85.
Any way this is a great view. Good enough for 132 steps.
So I went down and started looking for a coffee shop.
Some magic happening on the streets of Heidelberg.
And I found one good coffee shop called Starbucks.
Think it's something very local. Would say - Very German!
Next day is Baden-Baden::)))
