      Every village in England has its church. On this hike you can see three beautiful specimens and (if they are not closed due to Corona) to visit. Netherbury Church is so wonderfully alive and Stoke Abbott's is totally calm and peaceful. The church in Beaminster testifies to the size of the village. The hike connects different villages with a great rural backdrop.

      Abbotsbury is just a chocolate box village, very picturesque and what we would describe in typical English. The surroundings are great, wide plateaus and of course Chesil Beach, a 29 kilometer long (pebble) beach that runs from Bridport / West Bay to Portland Island. The drive from Bridport alone is great. This hike is always a must for us when in Dorset.

      We did this tour on a Sunday. There were therefore a particularly large number of hikers on the way. The views are also amazing, so that you can understand the rush. To get to the Golden Cap it was a short but steep ascent. After the coastal hike, we went on a beautiful forest path through Langdon Wood, before the coastal scenery with views as far as Portland Island came into focus again. Today we had wonderful autumn weather, a bit cool but warming sun rays. Perfect!

      This was the 50th hike with the Komoot app. Unlocking the world package was definitely a good expense 😉. Since we liked Lynton and Lynmouth so much, we took another hike in this area. It was always long along the East Lyn River, which was bursting with rapids and small waterfalls. That’s something for us! The river also carried a lot of water so it was really impressive. We went back, still over the grounds of the National Trust (which feels like half of the United Kingdom belongs) over several hills with a correspondingly high number of ascents and descents. You should definitely take the path in the direction we went, because the last part is only downhill, with a gradient of about 20 percent. Not so fun when you have to climb that serpentine over a mile 😚. Overall, a trail that should be done in this area.

      This path combined many of the highlights of Lynton. It went up and down quite a bit. Some sections were quite steep (uphill and downhill), but manageable with a bit of fitness. The views of the coast were just beautiful. The coastal path from Lynton to the Valley of Rocks is very well developed, then it went back over a hilltop with great views. I think next time I would walk the other way around, because then you can enjoy the views even more and not have so many steep uphill sections.

      After a very rainy weekend, the river was quite full. But the medieval Tarr Steps in the Barle were still easy to walk on and not flooded. However, the path by the river was very wet and we also had to walk through some streams and a lot of mud. The part-time Brit, of course, prefers the hike with rubber boots 🙂 The way back to the parking lot (3 pounds fee) led through the beautiful heathland of the Exmoors.

      The Lüneburg Heath is still a popular destination. Undeloh is certainly a hotspot. No wonder with the multitude of paths for walkers, hikers and cyclists. And of course not to forget the carriage rides. Parking is also quite cheap, 3 euros for the whole day and 1.50 euros for four hours. Cafes and shops (honey, potatoes, heather baskets and the like) complete the nice excursion.

      The Schluchsee is a bit smaller than the more famous Titisee and is much more charming. You can start great from the dam (large parking lot) and always run near the lake. It is 9.5 kilometers to the place Aha (that's really the name) and from there you can go back by boat for 6 euros per nose. We were a little late today and have therefore returned. There are great swimming spots along the way.

      Uih, that was also a nice piece of Black Forest. There were many attributes of a perfect path. Good length, nice views, refreshments in the middle of the path and water.
