Cool2 Springtime in Germany

Having just finished some repairs on our 1150 GS, we decided to celebrate this occasion by the thing we (me and my son) like best: Riding. We left Berlin heading north and ate up about 330 kilometers today. I just wanted to show you guys some pictures of rural eastern Germany, hope you like them.

This is a memorial for the fallen soldiers in WWI and WWII.



As usual, we made some pictures of the surrounding countryside and our bikes with slightly different backgrounds.















This is "Schloss Meseberg", which has been built in 1736 and, after restoration, now is used as a guest house by the German government.






Having lunch near lake Mueritz.



In case you wondered: That's me.









On the road again.



This is the city centre of Neustrelitz.






We found a nice little road through the forest where our bikes felt in their element.
























The weather was fantastic, the roads just as much. We enjoyed every minute of the ride.






Greetings from Berlin
