Good start for day one, most of the route was pretty straightforward, once we got out of Basel it was largely following the Rhine. However, once we turned off to head toward Mullheim the road started going up, it was uphill all the way through Mullheim and then got steeper and steeper up to Badenweiler. Luckily though, that should be the hardest hill of the week (other than the one we're getting a taxi up)

While chilling outside on the grass and looking at the stars, I made a hedgehog friend! He came trundling out of the long grass and came over to sit with me for five minutes or so before trundling back into the field. Sadly I couldn't get a picture but he seemed like a pretty chill guy

did you know that red grapes are green before they are ripe?

You don't actually get to eat any of the delicious looking corn and asparagus though, instead the vegetarian option is some variant of mozerella and tomato every time...
I've taken to ordering dessert because it usually comes with fruit 😉

and here i thought the Germans were known for their efficiency... in many ways Germany is a little like stepping back in time. All the slightly medieval painted rafters and shutters straight out of Disneyland, the general lack of decent WiFi and card machines. Plus the BnBs that clearly haven't been redecorated since the 1970s, just long enough that the orange bathroom suite is now positively fashionable. In a word, charming.

i like that someone had painted her nails 😁

Much easier day today with an all - downhill first half hour and very few hills all day. Freiburg is lovely and the Markgraeflerland is very picturesque, especially if you like cycling through vineyards, which I do. The "hotel" is not actually that, it's a room in a flat in what looks like a council house, but it's very comfortable (apart from being far too hot but I think that's just the weather's fault).
Tomorrow should be pretty relaxed, heading up to Hinterzarten on top of the mountain, but we're taxiing up because we're not insane

Ross kept offering helpful 'advice' while i was trying to stand up doing my best baby giraffe impression thinking 'why did i think this would be a good idea given the way i struggled with the ford on day 1' nevertheless once i was up it was actually good fun, i can see why people go for it.
