Begonnen hat alles mit einem dreiwöchigen Outdoor-Abenteuer in Schottland im Juni 2006, welches ich mittlerweile in einer Komoot-Collection nachgetragen habe. Seitdem habe ich zahlreiche Touren unternommen, Irland & Island, Madeira & La Palma, in den USA, in den Alpen und, vielleicht als bisheriges Highlight, den Arctic Circle Trail und mehr in Grönland. Draußen auf Tour zu sein ist also genau mein Ding. Und zwar in allen Bewegungsarten - wenn möglich beim Wandern, gerne auch in den Bergen. Da oft die Zeit nicht ausreicht und für mich auch der sportliche Aspekt zählt, geht es auch regelmäßig Laufen. Das Rad bringt mich in der warmen Jahreszeit oft in die Münchner Innenstadt, aber hin und wieder auch auf Erkundungstour. Zudem greife ich gern auch zu den weniger prominenten Sportarten wie Inlinern oder Rodeln. Zusammenfassen lässt sich das vielleicht so: Oft, überall und auf alle erdenklichen Weisen! 🚶♂️🏃♂️🚴♂️
After the little SUP round on the water, there was another round of the same. In addition to some urgently needed exercise and heating up for the subsequent swim, I also wanted to explore in more detail to what extent the terrain is suitable for an inline lap lake. Conclusion: In the north-west it will be difficult because of the heights on Freudenberg and the forest path at the ice rink - here you would have to turn left via Breitenbach. The rest can be done well. Because of the incline at the Rixner-Alm, it is advisable to go around on skates in a clockwise direction.Back to the running tour: The Schliersee is of course a mega-beautiful area. The views over the water to the south with the mountain panorama of the Brecherspitzkessel are always fascinating. There was a lot going on in today's bombastic weather, but the water rats are spread out well around the lake. It is also relatively shady on the west side. Without traffic, it is quieter here than on the busy east side.Now that the football department of the DFB has performed well, it was a really nice sports Saturday ...

Tried something new again, paddling on the Schliersee while standing. It went better than expected. Only when the water watch rushed by with their motorboat did I sway a little because of the wave. But in the end the sensationalists have waited in vain for an exit ... 😁The little excursion made you want more - next time a longer round to the island of Wörth is planned ...

Today at noon we went to the Taubenberg for a short run at 30 degrees. The heat is not a major problem there - in the forest it is mostly shady and cool. But the undulating terrain is demanding. Although I'm used to the low mountain range character of the foothills of the Alps from my native Solling, I'm really out of breath, especially in the first third up to the Taubenberg tower. The various sayings along the way don't help too much (although thematically appropriate like the fist on the eye). I gratefully accept the short information and photo break at the said tower.In the further course it becomes a little more relaxed, also because after the ascent it naturally went downhill for a few passages. In addition, the views to the south in the area of the Taubenstein-Berggasthof distract from the physical ailments. The inn is fallow - there is absolutely no business here, as it is currently only open on weekends.In the further course it goes through another loop through the forest over the so-called "Franz-Weg". I did not find out straight away which Franz this is dedicated to. The next and most beautiful stopover is the Nüchternbrunn pilgrimage chapel. The last few hundred meters to get there lead over a really nice trail, which is a welcome change from the wide forest roads. In Nüchternbrunn you can not only enjoy the nice clearing. The Taubenberg also plays its role here as Munich's water chamber - a cool spring gushing in abundance provides a welcome cooling. 🚿🚿🚿It then goes back through some enjoyable forest cave paths (and mostly downhill) to the village of Oberwarngau. Here I once again enjoy the classic village center with town hall, parish church, inn and - less classic - Italian ice cream parlor and I absolutely agree that the round is now over ... 🥵

My usual commute back home leads nicely along the Isar, at least a few kilometers. It was the same today. However, I somehow made a mistake and totally accidentally started cycling in the wrong direction of the river. No idea why. After a few kilometers in the flow, I noticed that something was wrong, namely after inhaling half a swarm of mosquitoes at full speed (and that as a vegetarian ...).Well then, I seized the chance that was presented to me and explored the Isarrradweg in the direction of Freising. Even if you don't see too much of the river, brief glances here and there will always show you rapids. I stopped at some and was amazed at the views.After a whole series of kilometers, I had the subliminal feeling that it was now advisable to turn off the bike path. I found myself in Ismaning and drove there - as if guided by magic - through the castle garden past the castle (today: town hall). Very nice, too.Then I must have made a few correct turns in Ismaning, purely intuitively, because the further route via avenues, fallow deer enclosures, various estates and farms was very contemplative. Suddenly, as luck would have it, I was standing on the bank of the large reservoir. The lake, created in 1929, is located directly on the north bank of the Mittlere-Isar Canal. In addition to regulating the water in the power plants on the Isar Canal and providing protection against flooding, the lake serves as a natural secondary treatment for Munich's sewage. Bathing is forbidden in the lake, but wild birds can be observed there (but given the huge size of the lake you need a lens designed for this purpose -> Burkhard!) And you can fish (the vegetarian is not interested). I mainly saw the dragonflies who are currently mating (or something like that) ...More subconscious automatisms then brought me to some villages with some great sacred buildings. The little village of Weißenfeld stood out with the parish church of St. Bartholomä and the maypole telephone booth in front of it - which is not all there.But then I thought it would be good to deliberately turn towards home and headed towards Haar / Putzbrunn / Ottobrunn. In the end, the way home was about four times as long as usual. Thank goodness I got home just in time for my next appointment - it just happened that I left early enough ... 😉🥳😜

Various natural roof constructions in the Perlacher Forest gave me a partially shaded, but above all active lunch break today.The Arelatümpel and the small ponds at the abandoned gravel pit near the Perlacher Mugl offered a change from the straight forest tangents that quickly get boring. The Perlacher Forest lies in the area of the Munich gravel plain, which has a water-permeable layer of gravel on the surface. That is why there are very few standing or flowing water. The aforementioned waters belong to some beautifully landscaped biotopes that have now grown into real little natural paradises. Here you can watch frogs, toads, tadpoles and one or the other adder. Various types of dragonflies also feel at home here and romp about on the damp, damp surfaces.

In stark contrast to our usual nature and mountain tours, we spent a whole day in Legoland near Günzburg today. The central area is the Miniland, which recreates cities such as Berlin, Frankfurt, Hamburg and Venice in painstaking and loving detail from millions and millions of Lego bricks. This alone is an absolute highlight for the Lego enthusiast - I found that very fascinating.For the children, of course, the various rides, from the rapid roller coaster to the wild water slide and various carousel facilities, are also interesting. Current boards show the waiting times; There is also a special app for this. There is also a lookout tower, several beautifully prepared playgrounds, games of skill like throwing balls and digging for gold (we stayed here for a long time), umpteen food stalls, and and and. It's also nice that the park has plenty of benches and picnic areas.But the area is not huge and unmanageable either. You can easily wander through all areas in one day, even if not try all the attractions because of the waiting times. So we have saved a lot for a possible follow-up visit ...

My favorite commute by bike, ridden for the first time in a long time, and for the first time ever this year.First it goes up the Isar. When the weather is nice, you can sunbathe on the gravel banks and the meadows. For a Friday afternoon with nice weather, there is comparatively little going on, but what is going on is casual and relaxed. The bike runs smoothly on the smooth asphalt and passes under the congested middle ring. On the Flaucher, the Isar shows itself powerfully rustling, after the heavy pouring of the last thunderstorm. In the zoo, the goats are happy to be petted again.The Marienklause is the sign of the short, crisp ascent to the Hochleite. There is even less activity here. It's cool and shady. The Menterschwaige beer garden has barricaded itself behind a fence. I rush past Hochleite No. 71 and think of Lola Montez (komoot.de/tour/328620242).The upper class resides in the Menterschwaige district along Meichelbeckstrasse. Here people prefer to hide behind high fences, walls and hedges - nobody is in sight. A few of the old smaller houses are still standing, but are gradually being replaced by high-class apartment buildings or mansions worth millions.Then it goes dead straight through the Perlacher Forest. The sun penetrates through the light foliage. Thoughts wander around disordered - time for a photo from the journey ...At the other end of the forest is the Taufkirchen district "Am Wald". That sounds nice, but it describes a collection of residential silos that were pulled up a few decades ago as part of the general Munich population explosion and have nothing, absolutely nothing, to do with the old town center of Taufkirchen. The migration quota here is what feels like 90% - the opposite of the mentors. Anyway, this section requires the only contact with motorized road traffic, so step through quickly and continue.Last but not least, it goes through the barley and rape fields Unterhachings, which still have the poppy sprinkles enjoyed yesterday. 18 kilometers of cycling enjoyment come to an end with the last official appointment for this week in the home office ...

Before the strong thunderstorm shower today I was able to admire the equally strong red of the poppies, which are now bold and numerous in the rapeseed fields. Numerous grasses and early summer flowers are in bloom in the landscape park. Sheep and goats with fresh offspring roam the area mowing. The Hachinger Bach gurgles with relish towards the north, while the cloud formations above emit ever more concrete threatening gestures. Five minutes after completing the tour, Petrus opens his cleansing and cooling locks ... 🌧 ⛈ 🌩 🌨
