We planned today’s trip last night (and it all came different today). We should stick with our motto: Last Minute Racing – don’t plan ahead!
Today’s Bundesländer crossing: Hamburg, Schleswig-Holstein & McPom – Germany in fast.
Control points of today achieved: no.1 we found a Nandu in the wild. Yes!
…and no.2 a white 4-story building.
Another challenge was the Task of today: exchanging a fresh fish from Hamburg with salt or wax in Wismar… well, first challenge: find someone who’s interested in an old fish. Lol. 2nd challenge: it’s a bank holiday… no shops open. But hey, we wouldn’t be a good team if we hadn’t managed. We exchanged our fish with a lobster (not sure if that makes points but a lobster is better than salt or wax, right?).
The Rally keeps us quite busy. Studying maps & road signs while searching for Nandus (or fish or breakfast…). Trying to complete daily challenges for extra points and day tasks and arriving before dust. Blogging & taking pictures for proof. It’s fun and Mini Cooper remains strong after daily dose of oil, gasoline & water.
Small electrical shut down today, though. Possible root cause: Irish legendary improvisation ideas on how to connect USB, radio & CB funk with each other… SOS!
Oh and everyone loves Aperoli. Many thumbs up at traffic lights and ahs and ohs.
Loved our day at the beach today.
Staying at a friends parents holiday apartment next to the beach tonight. Thanks 🙏
