It's been quite a week weather wise at our campsite "behind the dyke" in the region Krummhörn, northern Germany. Tuesday we had 100kmh winds - strong enough to blow me off my feet whilst chasing my wooly hat and blow me several meters past some of the neighboring pitches on a long muddy slide. Nightly temperatures between -2 and 2 °C, days around 10°C. Rainfall everything from nothing to the Great Flood.
It's our first outing in the little used (91) Eriba Puck that we bought used last year and left in storage over the winter, and I must say that I'm pleasantly surprised. High winds, subzero temperatures all no problem. Though I will admit to getting nervous an guying the thing on Tuesday against being blown over.
I really like the "big sky" feeling of the tidal flats in northern Germany, the light is beautiful. The flat landscape lends itself to discovery by bicycle. The villages are often tiny and just a couple of km apart and full of the history of the former fishing and whaling industries.
I'll be adding solar panels this summer to make us energy independent whilst touring and next year we'll be doing a tour of England, Wales and Scotland \o/.
