    At least you have a lovely biking trail to work--even when it's snowing. How many kilometers from your home to your office? I recall how beautiful this area was in the beginning of spring. It's difficult to believe the weeks and months have passed by so rapidly; and here we are about to head into winter once again. Do you encounter any deer and/or wildlife in this area? I recall on one or two of my visits to your country that you have the beautiful little deer. They look like a miniature version of the larger deer; and they look so adorable and cuddly.

    Luv ya!

      The distance from my home to my office is about 16 km (10 miles)
      I see a lot of wildlife on my way. Most I see bunnies and deer. Sometimes a horde of wild boars crosses my way. Fox are seldom visible. Several times a badger tries to block my way. The animal puts up his bushy tail, prances in the middle of the farm track and doesn't give way!!! :-))

        Dearest Manfred, I appreciate so much all your thoughtful and informative notes. Regarding your 10-mile ride twice daily--I'm certain there must be days when the ride seems to be much longer than remembered. I was looking at the list of wild life you may encounter occasionally en route to your destination. There are several animals I would hope to never see cross my path. I wasn't familiar with the badger, so I checked it out in the Encyclopedia. That is one mean looking little bugger; and it appears they aren't too choosey when it comes to food--particularly anything with a crunch to it. The wild boar is another breed I wouldn't want to encounter. I never realized they could be found in Central Europe. Are you permitted to carry any form of defensive weapon in case you should meet one of these aggressive, unfriendly creatures? I prefer to think your daily rides are always safe and beautiful.
        Luv ya bunches!

          The wild animals are not dangerous for a cyclist. The cheeky badger only tries to keep me off his patch and the wild sows want to guard their freshmen.
          Dangerous are the 'tame' animals! A fast riding biker seems to wake up the hunting fever of free running dogs! In 1998 a dog caught me from the bicycle and damaged my left shoulder. In 4 surgeries the bones of the shoulder had to be repaired with metal plates and screws!
          Since that time I carry pepper spray with me. I needed it already several times. The spray is very effective. The aggressive dog reverses during the jump, runs away and looks for sand to stick the nose into! The dogs on the daily way to my office know me already and don't try to catch me a second time :-)))

      Yes dear Hellen, I am glad about the nice way to my office. The biggest part of the way I use small streets in the countryside, on which no or very few cars go :-)
      I regret people, who must go every day with a car by traffic jam to their working place :-|

    There's even no road. It is better for your golden angel.

      The street is covered by the snow. After it had been snowing, I was the first one which used this street. There were still no tracks in the snow :-)
