Our long weekend ended in Heidelberg which is one of our favorite cities so far. After finding our hotel and parking about a half mile away, we stopped for lunch at Cafe Romantic. As it turns out, it wasn't very romantic at all and left disappointed, but we moved on to the bridge and then the castle.

So tomorrows rough plan is to head down through the Schwartzwald. I’m expecting slow journey times and great scenery. Possibly may stay a few days and use the scooter to explore. Although the scooter is faster and easier its a poorer experience compared to cycling.
