"The computer is the biggest detour to yourself." (Hans-Jürgen Krackher)Today, on the day of virtual love, this quote should become the slogan of my tour. I had set myself the goal of the Winterstein castle ruins and of course planned it virtually with Komoot. The virtual bet promised only good things, so I set off with Hulk in the morning. The sun was just creeping up the ladder to heaven and enveloping the landscape in a loving, warm light. The birds chirped to one another awake and the cold gave way to warmth. Love was in the air But after a short time there were problems in paradise. Komoot was apparently dissatisfied with the fact that I did not implement the planned route exactly. The result was that Komoot broke off the rest of the route and wanted to send me back home. This phenomenon should take place 5 times on the tour - operant conditioning doesn't work for me, Komoot darling. I am unable to learn there. The reason for my disregard of the plan was the event: Inselsberg ENDURO. All forest stretches were cordoned off with a tape recorder. Several times I got to racetrack 2 and 3. Again and again I had to take detours, take a look at the planned route again and again, only to find out at some point that the planned route had been deleted again and Komoot whispered in my ear via the in-earbud, I should turn back. Every time I was forced to end the Komoot tour and start the planned tour again. My virtual love for this charming outdoor app suffered a lot today, even if she only meant well to me. But sometimes a detour is a way out, in this case a way out of the event zone. In Bad Tabarz at the beautiful Struwwelpeter Park, I was still amazed at the many bikers parked there who were up so early and enthusiastically "Hi!" and good morning!" shouted, I just hoped that the race didn't start too early and that I would get out of the danger zone in time. Erhard Blanck once said: "It was once claimed that the journey is the destination. A detour and a way out came up." Well how true. The path as such was in parts anything but beautiful. I don't like to drive through towns and so avoid it as much as possible. But this time I often had no other choice.But finally I arrived at the castle ruins and I could breathe a sigh of relief. The facility was very idyllic and invited to linger. The small park is nicely planted and the moat is well cared for. After a little photo shoot, it finally went back.Since I had no idea of the scope of the event routes, I naturally got into barriers several times and found myself on the racetracks in parts. But somehow I made it to Friedrichroda. On a rapid descent of a single trail, a fox crossed my path so close that I still think about how he might be. I hope he didn’t hurt himself on the undergrowth during his daring move to get into the thicket.After a short detour to the candelabra, which shone again with a great view of the country, we finally went home. At this point, Komoot had given up hope that I would listen to her voice again on this tour. Since then there has been radio silence between us.But since today is the day of virtual love, I'm sending you on virtual X and Os:
Hey AnnaFarina, I'm Pyotre ... 🥰 (on the day of virtual love) 🤭😂Despite the problems, we conjured up a very nice round and the pictures are also very great. But, at work, for example, when it comes to computer-related problems, one always says quite simply: The problem is usually in front of the PC. 🤔🤭🤫 😂
What a great tour and adventurous until you got there !! But it's great that you made it because your pictures are all beautiful 😍🤩Your description of the tour is so beautifully written ♥ ️
@Pjotre: Hello Pjotre, I'm glad you got in touch. 🥰🤭😂Yes, you just have to make the best of the situation. I'm such a thing, I don't let myself be put off. 😂What kind of strange work is it that there are such impertinent views ?! On the other hand, if you work there, it will be something. 😜
@Pam: Thank you very muchThe way was worth it. It always means life is what happens when you are making plans ... sometimes you have to go against the plan and are rewarded with beautiful impressions. 😊
Oh man, this reads more exciting than any thriller! 🤗😂🙈🙈The fact that you finally achieved your goal in the end borders on a miracle under the adverse conditions! 🧚😅But that Komoot lets you down on the day of virtual love, of all things, is really cheeky! 🤨😬 Better real love in real life! ♥ ️😉😅It almost goes without saying that you have taken enchantingly beautiful pictures again, but should not go unmentioned ... 😊😍👌
Very interesting story and presentation 🥰. Despite the difficulties, your tour turned out very nice 🔝. Your pictures are 🔨awesome. Yes, Komoot was nagging around with me too 😡. Everything done right Annafarina.
With regard to the text and the wonderful photos, I unreservedly agree with the previous speakers.Yes, the dog is buried in Winterstein, very few people know that, and a loyal one too.Strutzel earned his grave.He served his mistress very well during the Thirty Years' War and brought messages of love. There was still nothing to do with virtual😉
@Lady: I'll tell you. I am glad that I got home again in the end. 😂I have to say, I didn't get into the flow feeling this time either. The constant dismounting and looking around did not allow a routine kick. But at least I hit a new personal top speed record, according to Samsung Health. That’s something
@Markus: Thank you very muchKomoot is apparently putting our patience to the test right now. 😅 Who knows what kind of plan is behind this.
@ Heinz: Thank you very muchThanks to the many virtual possibilities I was able to upload the tour in one piece. 😅
@Maja: Oh yes, the dog grave is really something special. It was not entirely clear, however, whether the letters were amorous or whether they contained war plans. Rumor has it. In any case, the good guy did a good job and got a special funeral. 😊
