I've finally gotten resettled into Germany (again). Course, I'm in the Wiesbaden area, not K-town. So yesterday came the first little difference between the two.
Occasionally, I like a good walk. In the Pfalz region.....it's mostly flat and a guy can cover five miles and not feel to bad about it. Here in Naurod-Wiesbaden? They have hills in every single direction. So a simple five-mile walk turned into a fair amount of work.
Then I came to discover that trails aren't really marked. There's a name for the trail.....you always see those signs, but the name doesn't relate to the village or anything much. So you come to a fork in the road and try to figure out where this other trail runs onto. You can figure that this invites debate and after a fair amount of hill-climbing.....you kinda lose your enthusiasm for walking.
Yeah, I'm going to require a GPS now.....just for walking, and that's a sad thing.
