After another good night rest I continue my limping. Today is my third and last day of this trip, and eventhough I am still excited about continuing I am looking forward to go back home tonight.

After breaking up at the camping site along the river I cross Pappenheim and leave the city.

Today it takes even up to two hours of limping/walking before I can put my feet straight on the ground. The weather is fantastic summertime weather and there are a lot of kano-ers, hikers and cyclers on their way. Walking along the river Altmühl I arrive at 3.00 pm at the village Hoch-Eichstatt. The trail leads up the hill, prettu steep, but not for too long, and it is rewarded with a nice view overlooking the valley.

On the other side of the hill the Trail goes down the hill, to the city of Eichstätt. It looks, from the top off a hill very nice and impressive, but the pain in my feet makes it impossible for me to pay a lot of attention to it. I had hoped to be able to walk further than just Eichstätt today but my speed is very slow (approx. 3 km per hour!) and I am not enjoying it.

In the evening I watch a football game of our national team against Jugoslavia (the legendary quarterfinal of the Euro 2000 chanpionships, Netherlands wins with 6-0 the biggest score ever achieved after the first round on a European Championship). Later in the evening I take the train from Eichstätt to Crailsheim and drive back by car to the Netherlands.
