    On Germany’s Rooftop Foreword Well everybody, thanks to Plan B we made it to Grainau near Garmisch-Partenkirchen. In spite of a couple of difficulties, like Kev not eating properly and much rain, including really bad storms, we made it: 111.3 Kilometres in total. In fact it was more than that because old Kev had problems with his ...
  • Day 10 – 05.06.22
    Farchant to Garmisch-Grainau. Foreword Kev had a fabulous buffet breakfast at the hotel, spoilt for choice he was, I had my usual. Then we began our final day’s hike just around the corner, on the Loisach bridge in Farchant, before going right across town to the mountains in the west. From the bridge we could clearly see ...
  • Day 09 – 04.06.22
    Oberammergau to Farchant. Foreword In glorious weather we left Oberammergau by going under the main road and along the banks of the Ammer towards Ettal.

    TSV Weilheim to Peißenberg. Foreword Kev emptied the tent out putting all the damp things onto a bench in the early morning sun. There was a bit of cloud but he hoped it would all dry whilst he had a shower. He left me outside to guard it all, although tied up all I could do was ...
  • A Short Pause!
    Hey everybody! Kev and I have a few things to do in the next days. We are unlikely to post until next Thursday. If we can post earlier we will. We are looking forward to showing you the last days of our tour to the Zugspitze!

  • Day 04 – 30.05.22
    Utting on Ammersee to St. Alban, Dießen Foreword I’ve been telling Kev since the morning of day 2 to own up and be honest about his aches and pains, but he didn’t want to, so I am going to tell you now. You can read about it after today’s photos and video. see the remaining text after the ...
  • Day 03 – 29.05.22
    Buch am Ammersee to Utting am Ammersee. Foreword We had to walk back as far as Stegen this morning. This is because the campsite in Buch is the only one that accepts both tents and dogs in the whole area. We did not go the same way as we came because of the narrow paths where Kev’s ...

  • Day 02 – 28.05.22
    Schöngeising to Buch am Ammersee. All written and spoken by Pearl Foreword At six thirty we got up and the first long packing session took ages. I couldn’t help, could I?

  • Day 01 – 27.05.22
    Puchheim to Schöngeising. Foreword We were lucky to get a legal place to camp because there are no campsites here in Schöngeising.
