On our last day in Gera we had a massage at the physiologist, doctors orders. We left towards the east with a big smile on our face, happy to be on the road again. After 25 km of beautiful landscape and great weather, we found the Bravo Eis Cafe we went inside the courtyard, where we were welcomed by a beautiful farmers daughter. After rubbing our eyes and blinking twice, we found our speech again and explained we needed a place to camp. A bit later while we were cooking, Dietmar, the farmer who owns the eis cafe drove by. He had just gotten back from harvesting, and invited us for a beer and dessert.
Before we could order a beer, Dietmars wife invited us to come and sit with the rest of the family in their cosy courtyard. Over the sound of us licking our fingers, stories were exchanged. By the end of the night, the daughters told us there was a swimming pool nearby, and we snuck over the fence to go for a midnight skinnydip.
