Usually, my articles are months, years or even decades behind actual events. But today, there are a few photos from yesterday’s hike in Amberg-Sulzbach County in Germany to remind you: Take advantage of autumn while the sun is still warm and the leaves are still colorful!
Don’t worry about the early morning fog. Like many problems, it will simply go away by ignoring it.
The ruins of Hohenburg Castle are located in a US military training area, making it impossible to visit, unless you want to be accidentally shot or shipped to Guantanamo.
So let’s head in the other direction, while the sun is gaining strength.
Oh, the famous pilgrimage route of St. James passes by here as well.
The pilgrims have to be self-sufficient, collecting fruits and berries,
because the pubs along the route have long since closed. You can read more about this sad development in chapters 68 and 69 of my walk along King Ludwig Trail.
And swoosh, after about 30 kilometers, I am back home. It was almost too short.
Now, if you live on the southern hemisphere, you are in bad luck, of course, because you are having spring instead of autumn. Sorry!
If you live on the northern hemisphere, though, go out as much as you still can! There will still be enough time to work in winter. Or next year. Honestly, the gross national product is not that important.
