A nice group of friends from the Dominican Republic has just started a great tour that in 10 days will take them from Munich to Rome! Lots of different environments, from the hills of Bavaria to the Alps, and then Italy... and also a big change in culture and way of living (and traffic behaviour!) is awaiting us! Stay tuned!
Our second riding day led us through very nice German landscapes, where nobody could imagine that this country very industrialized! We reached the beautiful abbey of Schöntal for a break, but we discovered that almost every cafe is closed here on mondays. They call it "Ruhetag", and it was quite a challenge to find a spot for a coffee break! Then we heaed to Hornburg where we had lunch (fortunately it was open!) and, following the river "Neckar", we slowly reached Hirschhorn and finally Heidelberg.
The Black Forest was definitely the highlight of the day! What a paradise for motorcycles! The "Schwarzwaldhochstraße" is one of the best known scenic routes in Germany, stretching for some 60km from Baden-Baden to Freudenstadt, and we hade to say it really deserves its fame!
