Just so I remember:
Fry onions and apples in, preferably, goose fat. Add Preiselbeeren (Lingonberries). Add red cabbage. Season with salt, pepper, all spice, cloves, cinnamon. Add vinegar and red wine.
Crossed the Rhine with the ferry at Langel and then up to Leichlingen in the Bergischen Land. Couldn’t get close to the Schloss, closed due to covid.
After lunch in the sun we went back the way we came.
If Brexit has done one thing it has cured me of Anglophilia.
There is now no chance of me going back to visit the UK. Perhaps, eventually, maybe, I’ll visit an independent Scotland. But otherwise, as my child no 2 would say, hard no.
As our e-bikes have increased our reach, the list of Schlösser provides easy inspiration.
I guess this will keep us busy. Also there are castles, abbeys, stately homes, mills, …
Today we took the Zons ferry and cycled on to Schloss Benrath
Again, only 20 km from home.
Another Schloss, again within 20 km from home.
Renessaince (Dutch style) architecture. Not open to the public.
A cycling trip to Schloss (Museum) Morsbroich. Ca 20 km from home on the other side of the Rhine.
Thankfully the cycling path on the Leverkusener Brücke is still open. (The bridge is going to be replaced).
