02.09. – Day#38: Harz mountains

Today I started in the city of Wernigerode after a 3 day break. As I did 1400m of altitude today I wanted to start with rested legs and that was a good idea. I felt really good and energetic.
The Harz mountains presented fantastic landscapes with gentle hills, forests, farmland and small towns.
I met an elderly couple on Mountainbikers and had a 45min conversation with them about life. Turns out he felt like being in a corset of expectations when he was young but he broke out, left the military and became a teacher, his dream job. And life rewarded him over and over again for this. It was so inspiring to listen to this story and it encourages me to follow my way and intuition even more.
I arrived after 90km in Duderstadt and have great hosts. Now I’m sleepy, maybe also because we had some wine.
Tomorrow I will explore the town, do some shopping and will drive only 3-4hours. So I have a relaxed day ahead of me.
Bye bye,
