Iˈve finally made it to Germany! Iˈm currently staying with my sister and her husband near Düsseldorf. They live in a modern looking house outside the city, the inside is super spacious and there is an abundance of balconies to relax on in the sun. It was 22c today, despite only being late March.
We spent the afternoon walking up into a valley near the town where I spotted a fallen Beech tree covered in Bracket Fungi over a small stream.
Later on we passed a log completely covered in Wood Sorrel, a wild woodplant with tiny beautiful white flowers. The leaves are edible and taste bitter/sour, a little bit like lemon.
Tomorrow we head into Dusseldorf to walk along the Rhine and do some sightseeing.
