The circular trail Lonnig is a hiking trail, which I have chosen as my entry after my vacation. With dog. Clear!Just under 8 km and not much to climb.The hiking trail starts in the village; in front of the local Volksbank is a parking lot.You walk immediately to the Maifeld and the Keverbachtal and past paddocks with various breeds. Lonnig is a horse-loving people. At some point, however, I am also past the last paddock and enter the forest, disappear very gently in the Keverbachtal. First on asphalt and then on soft forest floor, covered with flat-pressed horse apples, wherever you look. Does not bother dog and me very much, it is very humid and brakes do not plague us. Maybe that's because of the horse apples? That would be only right.Dragonflies fly across the path, many different species. The brook widens in some places and forms small floodplains. I like the dragonflies.After two kilometers we leave the valley again and stand directly in the shimmering evening sun on the Maifeld. About really nice groomed dirt roads we walk cumbersome in Schlingen direction Lonnig.On the edge of the village, a sign points us to the Roman Villa Rustica. Well, there was one there. And that is about two meters underground. A part on which no house stood was dug up, measured and filled up again. The rest of the villa has been confirmed by aerial photography and now children are playing on a playground on former Roman terrain. What remains? A few stone walls, which represent a tiny part of the villa floor plan and an information sign! Hm...I keep going, out of the village and walking around from behind. No new findings! So back in the place and in the direction of the parking lot. The car is waiting for me and the dog ...
Oh, holiday over again - that was really fast but nice, that you're back alive and well!Best regards :-)
