Where I stayed
On a stupid train

Flag of Germany  , Baden-Württemberg,
Friday, May 23, 2008

I checked out rather early today; 9:00. For the next six hours I proceeded to hike through the Black Forest using two crappy hiking maps as a guide, and occasionally the terrible city map as well. the hiking was very nice here, it reminded me quite a bit of Washington. I saw deer, wild boar, the largest rabbit of all time, and goats (don't tell Mimi). After reaching the top of a ridge, I began to work my way down on into another town. Then it rained. Damnit.... So I threaded my way back to the top where a cable car could shuttle me to the bottom. I wound up actually walking around the peak of the ridge once before making it to the top; these trails are confusing. After reserving my ticket to Dresden and eating lunch; I headed out to the Roman-Irish Bath, Friedrichsbad. Well, time for my first nudist experience. This bathhouse is all nude, and mostly mixed. And the 15-step process is actually a pretty intense.
2. Hot Room (54C, or about 135F)
3. Really Hot Room (68C, 162F)
4. Shower
5. Extremely Stifling Sauna
6. Somehow An Even More Stifling Sauna
7. Shower
8. Massage
9. Hot Pool
10. Warm Pool
11. Cold Pool
13.FREEZING Pool (5C, 36F)
15. Dry Off
Overall, it was definitely an interesting experience..and I've never felt cleaner in all of my life. After the bath house, I called the folks and just waited for the uncomfortable train ride.
