September 22, 2010 - Wednesday - Freiburg/Flörsheim

We made a stop in Freiburg so we could walk around and take some snapshots of the area. We enjoyed a walk along a river and found a local company where Adam bought some items for his grandparents. Some of his ancestors lived in that city.

We finally arrived in Flörsheim after changing trains in Frankfurt. We stayed in an excellent hostel that provided us with free bicycle rentals.

We rode the bikes up the hill to a small little restaurant a few kilometers from the hostel.

I had a thrilling experience as I rode the bike back down the hill. I listened to Arcade Fire’s “Sprawl II (Mountains Beyond Mountains)” as I coasted down the hill with my arms spread. The late-night weather was extremely pleasant and the surrounding vineyards and farmland were beautifully illuminated by an almost full moon.
