Four Days on the Road: Day 2

Again a beautiful sunny day, not a cloud in the sky. Today’s ride is longer with more climbing as we approach the Ammergau Alps, it is also more interesting.

HERE is the journal entry.

I'm a US born ex-pat, having lived most of my adult life in Munich, Germany. Cycling and photography are my favorite things.

    What a delightful trip Suzanne.

    I had tried to comment on your blog, but for some reason I cannot log into Cycle Blaze. I have tried everything I know, including resetting my password, and emailing the admin. No answer to that email, so I am posting this here thinking someone might see it and be of assistance for me to log in there.

    Anyway — I love those horses! Interesting that one place would have little to no guard against Covid and another would be so very aware and safe. So nice to have your tour be in the sunny countryside. Thanks for taking us with you.

      Wonder why you get no response from the admin… But commenting here is fine with me, too. Glad you are enjoying riding along. Those were really lovely horses and so surprising to have no fence between them and us.

    The horses may have been a bit too inquisitive for me – after having cows slobber all over my handlebars while camping once (totally gross to try to clean up and I had limited water), I prefer the animals to maintain some social distancing 🙂 Too bad not all of the dining areas are maintaining social distancing either. Our cafes, etc have just reopened, and I’ve already seen some questionable spacing here, too! I think there are state laws preventing the buffets, though.

      Cows do seem to slobber incessantly and I have also read that they are not always peaceful. I like them to keep their distance, too.

    What a beautiful ride! And terrific pictures of the horse. Em’s comment reminds me of the time many, many years ago when I was hitchhiking a long distance and got a ride in jammed into a small space in a horse trailer where the equine in residence kept sneezing horse snot all over me. The horse in your photos looks like it has much better manners.

      I admit I was feeling a bit apprehensive when the horse started sniffing my camera bag – but I got a picture, anyway. I was happy when he/she wandered away.
