Following the Inn, Day 4

Finally, the next sequel of our ride…Again great weather, sunny but not too hot. The route is flat with a very gradual but steady gain of altitude, mountains to either side, prettier than yesterday although we are again frequently within earshot of the highway. You can read more HERE:

I'm a US born ex-pat, having lived most of my adult life in Munich, Germany. I have three kids and eight grandchildren - so I'm pretty old. Cycling, photography and walking are my favorite things.

    Beautiful and interesting place — the ornate buildings and flower boxes are really something.

    Enjoyed the video — I found the Stop sign interesting and surprising — are S T O P signs common there, and if so, why? Also, the cornfields along the path — looks very green for this time of year

    Great tour you are enjoying and we are too!

      Glad you enjoyed the video and post, Rich! Stop signs are common. Were you wondering why the English word ‘stop’ or why stop signs are used to indicate right of way? Stop is a normal German word, but probably borrowed from English since there is also the German word ‘halten’ for stop. Right of way is regulated differently here than in the US, I believe. Although I haven’t driven a car in the US for about 50 years.

        Yes I was, thanks for the info — I had seen in Quebec Canada the french use Arret for stop signs, although the sign itself is a red octagon. So I thought countries would use their own language for them — I guess not!

      Just did a little google and saw that the “STOP” traffic sign is used throughout Europe.
