The trail from Neckargemünd to Neckarsteinach is about 10kms, but we didn't want to make any shortcuts. So we walked around in a loop in town to pick up where we had left off, which ended up taking us through a park back down to the river and back up to the train station again!

It was raining quite consistently so I went to Kaufhof to find an umbrella, almost at the point of sale when I realised it was 60 Euros... went to chemist got one for 5 Euros. Awoke at 4:15 am - sigh.
