This was a surprise and it was nice following it for awhile!
Our BBF would have followed it all the way if he could, but that would take ages as it twisted and turned on its way to Dortmund.
We left it and crossed over it at least twice which just proved we were going the shorter way.
We stopped frequently to drink and as it got hotter we did it every five kilometres! This kept the humans hydrated and consequently in good spirits!
We crossed the Autobahn Eins by what Chris said was a notorious hot spot where accidents often happen!
Yesterday we had seen warning signs for the Oak Processionary Caterpillar! Now we found more warnings and the deadly beasts themselves!
We cycled now through forests and they were all infected!
It was a nice ride away from traffic and we Bears really enjoyed the journey as we did not have to exert ourselves much!
The humans seemed to enjoy the journey too, stopping occasionally to take photos that interested them.
These huts were at a place that advertised mud dwellings! Were these carvings African in origin? We did not know and there was no one to ask.
One village we went through had even taken the trouble to decorate their streets in the appropriate colours for us!
We stopped for a large isotonic drink and found a bear in the pub!
On our journey to the Dortmund Branch we hardly saw the city as such, but knew we were close when we saw these Coal Mine towers.
Large isotonic drinks were downed and a full English breakfast was eaten! Domenic, the local RBL Branch secretary had cooked the breakfast. Phillip a member of the branch was also there to great us.
