Well, the plan was to go to Ukraine with two buddies and the motorbikes and have a bit of a midlife crisis adventure. So dirt track tires were mounted on the motorbike, cloths were packed, the route was loaded into the GPS and everything was ready to go.
The day before we left, I went to my local Starbucks to have a last sip of civilisation, when thing went wrong. All of a sudden I had terrible pain in my belly, like real outch. As my doctor happens to be just around the corner, I went there, only to be hooked up to some infusions and shipped to the next hospital in an ambulance where they diagnosed a kidney stone.
And so I missed the car train to Vienna the next day and was left behind, partly sad for missing the trip and partly glad the kidney stone decided to go wild while I was still in Switzerland and not on some remote dirt road in eastern Europe.
And so it came I did a short trip to Germany the next week. The weather forecast predicted cold and wet weather for the next few days and so I decided to take the car instead of the bike.
So here you go, that’s the reason why you get to see this fairy tale castle instead of nice russian churches 🙂
