Zooming on the highway on the back of motorcycle has my adrenaline pumping. I look around and see cattle and horses grazing in the wide open space. The sun is peaking in-between the rolling hills shining brightly on the orange and yellow falls leaves.
We zip past vineyards and apple orchards, on the curvy country roads, as I think about my trip so far. It’s been a few weeks since I got to Germany. The experience has been absolutely wonderful so far. The food, the motorcycle rides, running a half marathon, the culture and history has left me excited and wanting to explore more. I fantasize about how it would be to live here, then I come back to reality fast. As much as it would be a wonderful experience, the thought of uprooting myself, learning a new language, adjusting to a different culture, makes me realize that maybe I am too set in my ways to start again. So instead I turn my head and look again towards the rolling hills and enjoy the sights.
My friend did not have to talk me into riding on the back of a motorcycle. The weather has been perfect for it and I was not going to miss out on the opportunity of adding to my adventure. (click here for how I met my friend) He has shown me around the little country village he lives and turned my trip into an adventure. So here are some pics from my trip so far.
I wish the pictures could justify what I have seen, but despite not having a camera sometimes, here are some images I captured.
