Microadventures: Paddling on the “Altmühl”

The sun is shining outside and I am confined to my apartment with a cold that struck me yesterday. So, on this public holiday, no hiking trip, no sports, no nothing. The stress of the last months is taking its toll, this week I ruined an important experiment by a stupid mistake and now I am feeling sick, all signs that I have to take it a bit more slowly in the next days….so I spent the afternoon on the couch, searching through a few outdoor blogs for some travel inspiration. When you can’t be outside in the sun, take yourself on an imaginary adventure trip.
And with my upcoming trip to Colombia in mind, I put on some road tripping music and started surfing from one great travel blog to the next, taking mental notes for further destinations and adventures. Oh, this ever expanding list of places to go….
However, after having traveled half the world through blog posts and reminiscing in memories of past adventures, I also thought I might share a few pictures of a “micoadventure”, as one would call it in the outdoor blogosphere today, at the Altmühl in Bavaria. Sometimes it doesn’t have to be the Amazon river or the Himalayan mountains, a small stream, a canoe, good company and some sunshine is just the right combination for a perfect sunday afternoon adventure. 
We had a wonderful canoe trip from Sollnhofen to Dollnstein which took us about 3,5 hours. We could leave the canoe in Dollstein and take the train back to Sollnhofen where we enjoyed a hearty meal at Aktiv-Mühle Sollnhofen (where we had also rented the canoe from).
