This morning, I woke up to my mom roaming around the room at 7:00. I dozed for another hour and was then woken up intentionally by her. Its funny, though. She wakes me up so sweetly, and yet I am going through great pain. I wouldn’t get up, so Mom eventually gave up and left me to go have breakfast. I eventually got out of bed, though I was very somnolent the rest of the morning. Unfortunately, my sleepiness kept me from having a very good day.
We started biking in the late morning after touring a palace in Grein. When we had biked for a while we found an old castle ruin. This castle was supposed to be haunted by a ghost that is rarely seen, and only comes out at the full moon. I think that story is a load of poppycock. The castle ruin was really interesting. The most fascinating thing about it was that one of the towers had been accessed by a big outside staircase back in the day. The staircase has worn down and now you have to climb up the wall to get to the doorway that is about 10 meters high. None of us made it. For now, only the birds know what is inside the castle tower.
After touring the castle, and biking several more miles, we had to bike up a huge hill to get to our hotel. It was 6 kilometers long. I have never biked a hill that long. I couldn’t take any pictures because it was too strenuous of a ride. When I got up to the top, I felt proud of myself for accomplishing such a big hill. It was really good weather to bike in, not sunny but also not too cold. After reaching the top, we still had to go a little farther to get to our hotel. The good news was that most of the final push was down hill, with only occasional up hills. When we got to the hotel I was relieved that the long day was over.
I’m really tired now, and want to go to bed. Thank you for reading Rohan Geographic.
