Abby and I are on day three of our stay in the Black Forest (Schwarzwald) in Southern Germany, This evening, we just enjoyed two cappuccinos and a black forest cherry torte. Coffee and dessert seem to be a afternoon staple in this area. There are elements of the black forest that remind us of Oregon, but all the villages are connected with trails for miles and miles of hiking and biking, an outdoor paradise for the eternal wanderer.

We spent today exploring the area visiting Titisee and Feldberg where we took a cable car to the highest elevation of the southern part of the black forest.

Our airbnb lodging is a beautiful wood home where we have our own apartment upstairs for only 57 euros per night. Close by is an enchanting trail filled with black forest creatures of all kinds.

Let the wild rumpus begin!!!
