8: This was an interesting day. The weather reports said it would rain but we decided to go for a bike ride together to the Rapunzel tower a few towns away anyway. We started the ride and only 30 minutes in, it began to pour! We took shelter under a little shack for awhile and it wasn't letting up so we rode soaking wet to this little B&B but it was closed! The man who owned it was nice enough to let us in and make us coffee while we figured out what to do! We ended up riding to the next town over and taking the train back to Marburg....it was definitely an adventure!
