In Hagnau I helped Sybille to renovate one of her appartments. I liked the work but I have to admit it did grow a bit out of proportion for me.
It went from a small “do up the place a little” to a full renovation. Luckely Gut and the guys came to pick up the pace and finish the place.
Herr Gut, Adam and Mateusz learned me a lot of things about renovating. This gave me the feeling that I am on the right track with my trip. I set out to learn and experience new things and here in Hagnau I did exactly that.
Me at my best

Good times with Mateusz and Adam putting putz on the wals.
In Hagnau I got to know Sybille’s friend Isabel and we went on a small motorcycle tour to enjoy the countryside.
We stoped to see some waterfalls somewhere in the Allgäu. The southern part of Germany is beautiful!
Up here trough there and you will get there.

The waterfall. In the photo it looks a lot smaller as it was in reality.
When I took of from Holland I took with me a salt and pepper mix made by Max Havelaar called “African mix”.
I really liked it and looked for something that came close to the same taste in the shops where I passed.
But no success so I gave it a go myself.
Delicately cut some skin off an orange, citrus and lemon. And added af few sliced bits of garlic to dry in the frying pan.
After an hour or so of careful stirring and heating (no burning) all was dried, left it to cool down and mixed it with salt and pepper.
The result a very strong sunny tasteful mix for any meal

As in almost every post I have to fix my bike in some way or do some maintenance.
This week I did the lot, the traveling is taking its toll on the old bike.
But nothing serious.
-new rear tire
-broken muffler welded
-new and better heat shield in the side cover
-12v socket placed on the rear of the bike
Jürgen aka Willi, helped me with the TIG welding of my muffler and fixed me up with a mount for the 12v socket I put on the rear of the bike.
He had some cool bikes there a Yamaha 250 DT , a faster then normal Schwalbe and a very cool Beta 498
The bike is ready to hit the next continent! Tomorrow I will set of towards the south of Spain and Morocco.
