    Corana has been determining our lives for a long time and unfortunately also all of our plans.
    Stores closed? I do not care. No restaurant visits? I do not care. When do the cinemas open again? I really don't care. But what brings tears to my eyes (what is happening as I write this) and I definitely don't care about telling my daughter for months that our vacation is being canceled. The parents among you will now know it: The Karls Erlebnisdorf. We are there 3 times a year, but in Rostock. The smile of my daughter as she is having fun there and is super happy, absolutely priceless!
    With Jörg the idea had been there for weeks to go to Lübeck! I asked him to drive to Travemünde to bring my daughter something from her favorite farmer's market as a surprise. Since we have only been eating jam from there since we have known Karl, it was of course a matter of honor to bring it with us! 🍓🍓🍓The alarm clock rang at four o'clock to start the day comfortably. At 5 o'clock we left! However, I overestimated myself a bit with the route, as it was the first long one in 2021. When Jörg and I said goodbye, I still had 24 km to go, but 101 in my legs. It took me just over an hour for the next 10 km, my legs became more and more sluggish and heavier! It was hopeless, four kilometers from home I had to admit to surrender and be picked up. I picked up the bike in the evening!I would like to know one of those who have read this far:
    Has this ever happened to anyone? For the first time in 33 years! 😄
    Jörg, always happy!

    Heavy legs, yes ... but not with the consequence. But there is also greatness in that! And as always, the journey is the goal!

    Yes it is me. A tour to Bad Oldesloe and back (approx. 120km). On the way back it got dark, cold and started to rain. I was also hypoglycemic and had nothing to eat. Then I was picked up in Reinbek (about 7 or 8 km from home) 🤷🏼‍♂️But..
    Great story ... and happy daughter ...

    I also had the feeling about the sugar. At home I drank 0.5 liters of Coke that afternoon and it got better!
    On Saturday I was really annoyed about it, but now I don't think anymore that I should be ashamed of it ...!
    Because you hit everyone who stayed on the sofa ✌🏻

    Has happened to me too. After 150km of hunger, completely hypoglycemic and then fell into the "three-year-old mode" ... My buddy had to endure my grumbling and whining for the last 20km. Felt like the diva from the Snickers commercial. Well, when men suffer ...

    Great effort for the daughter and her strawberry jam!On longer tours I always have 1-2 Snickers with me - against the "diva effect"; can be eaten in a three-minute break if necessary. I can even eat wine gums or trail mix while driving. Just think about it. On the other hand, I find it difficult to still drink enough in cool weather.I thought the Erdbeerhof was nice 10-15 years ago, but no longer so. But that is my perspective of an adult, for children it is definitely much more interesting than before.

    When we weren't parents yet, we walked purposefully across the yard without paying attention to everything around it. But since our daughter has been here, we've been spending hours there, often for days in a row. Her smile is just so enchanted when she is there 💕 Due to Corona we have unfortunately not been there for ages, it hurts me a lot not to be able to tell her when we are going again.

    Yes, it's annoying that so little is possible. Today, for the first time in months, I made an (outside) stop (in the Storman district). Despite the cold wind, all guests were happy in the "finally again" mode.Children can be happy like a child best :-)

    Great idea, it's always nice when you can combine something useful with your tours.
    I like the tour, I'll have to test it out on my next “corona vacation”. Keep it up! 👍🏻

    I would have preferred to buy the heavy jam four kilometers from the finish instead of hauling it 116 km away 🤣
