When the road continues on the other side…
You take a boat.
When you cross the boarder…
Bye bye Czech Republic, very close to Poland, hello Germany.
When the camp site where you were supposed to sleep is closed…
You continue till the next town.
When you count all that together, we did our longest etappe of the journey till now and went over the 50km on one day.
Going through the Bohemian Massif along the meandering Elbe, to the Elbe Sandstone Mountains in Saxon Switzerland.

#Xavieerle

” Almost every night we camp, in sunny times and through storms, our Green Castle is our little home. Can you imagine, to transport one huuuuge tent, 6 sleeping bags, and so on, and so on, on two bikes? Every year we’re proud we manage again and again.”

#Xavieerle #miniChips

“At the same time, we know we are very privileged, to enjoy camping and moving from one place to another, and calling it holidays. To have all the luxury we need, while thousands of people are on the road every day…not by choice, not for holidays…”

 

Chip Veerle Haverhals is a volunteer at World Organization of the Scout Movement – WOSM. She lives in Brussels, Belgium.

Night Walking Tour of Jewish Quarters of Sagunto | Dr. Jose G. Lepervanche | #semahdevalencia

Another adventure in our quest for Sephardic heritage was to do a night walking tour in the narrow streets of the old Jewish Quarters of Sagunto.

Night tour of the Jewish quarter of Sagunto. After the assault on the Jewish quarter of Valencia in 1391, the Saguntine aljama took over from Valencia and became the most important of the Kingdom. (descubrevalencia.es)

Quiero Cultura is one of the tour operators that offer outdoors walking tours to historic and cultural places of Sagunto.

Tour included stops in several places to display slides to illustrate and complement the outdoors learning experience.

We crossed several arches and visited two medieval jewish cemeteries outside the Castle of Sagunto.

Tours are organized each Saturday during summer months and once a month the rest of the year.

Other night walking tours include visits to all churches, way of the cross, and cemeteries. Outdoors classrooms at night.

We continue finding new information about our #SemahDeValencia family and our Sephardic heritage.
