    Congratulations, dearest Manfred! What an outstanding and challenging marathon--you got a good sunburn in the process. I've enjoyed so much taking the journey with you--in spite of being a bit nervous at times. It was nice you were able to take such outstanding photographs of the event along the way. It truly had some beautiful rolling countrysides and villages which gave me a better view of the area you were traveling. I noticed you have other albums; so I'm placing a bookmark to your lovely site for a return visit or two. I hope you will visit my site occasionally. Although I have a few photos, I'm not into taking pictures. When I joined Fotki, it was to store my thousands of "signature tags" which I collect from artists worldwide. They're quite addictive. Each one has a special meaning for me. They are all very precious; and I wouldn't want to lose any of them. I've made so many friendships during my 10 years of collecting these unique tags.
    Luv ya!
    Sweet Caroline

    Deine Arbeitskollegen gratulieren Dir ganz herzlich zu dieser bestandenen großen Prüfung!
    Wie die Fotos zeigen, ist der Weg das Ziel und, wie bei der Arbeit, oft steinig.
    Wir sind stolz auf einen solchen Arbeitskollegen.

    Deine RDS-Kollegen!

      Vielen Dank, liebe Kollegen! Wenn die Voraussetzungen stimmen, ist Langstreckenradeln so einfach wie die Bearbeitung eines Projektes.
      - Gute Grundlagenentwicklung,
      - klare Aufgabenstellung,
      - eindeutiges Ziel,
      - feste Termine,
      - Entscheidungsbefugnis.
      Was soll dann noch schief gehen? :-)))

        Whether is easier to go 1200 km on a bicycle-couch, than on a usual bicycle?

          Dear Helen, with both types of bicycles, it is not easy to ride 1200 km :-)
          But I am sure that with a usual road bike, on the terrible country roads, I would have got neck problems.
          With the couch I had no physical problems
          - no neck problem
          - no pain in the wrist
          - no sit complaints!
          On long distances, a recumbent is really much more comfortable than a road bike!

            Fine!!! Now it is possible for you round the world on a couch!!!

            ... It is not easy to ride 1200 km... It is exact :)) ... To me such it is not accessible even in a dream :)))

    Schön, wieder Lebenszeichen von dir zu sehen. Noch so eine Tour und die Farbe deiner Beine passt zur Couch.

      Moin, moin Andreas, die Beine, Arme und Gesicht hatte ich mit Sonnencreme eingecremt. An die Lippen hatte ich nicht gedacht. Nun habe ich Brandblasen auf der Unterlippe :-)
      Die Couch ist eine echt bequeme Sonnenliege :-)))
