I feel like I should note that I just spent two weeks in the south, visiting the Karlsruhe crew. Seeing all the people again has been amazing and everybody provided the poor backpacker with food and accommodation, thanks guys!
Unlike in earlier years I didn’t take the train for travelling this time. Instead I tried the rides offered on the internet (mitfahrgelegenheit.de) which are way cheaper. Everything went well there so I’ll use the system whenever no cheaper train tickets are available.
In lack of other appropriate photos, here’s a shot from my last stop in Frankfurt.
