In Berlin for work with a week off in Europe after starting on Friday, June 29th. I'll be renting a car and looking to drive the romantic road via the Medieval towns of Rothenburg and Fussen. More details can be found here: https://www.tomtom.com/en_us/routes/details/germany/romantic-road/ I expect to depart Berlin on Friday and drive to just before Wurzburg to get an early start on Saturday. This will provide two days to take it relatively easy and enjoy the drive and sights along the romantic road, which ends in Fussen, Bavaria near the castle of Neuschwanstein. The goal is to be in Fussen on Sunday, in the early afternoon. Would love to just wander medieval towns and enjoy some food, scenery, and reading at a Cafe. From Fussen, it's a 5 hour drive to Como - which leaves ample sunlight to start a hike and spend Monday night in the wilderness. I have a light and efficient (15kg) set up and could cover 30-40+ km over 2-3 nights. This should give us some flexibility. I'm imagining waking up on in the wilderness at 8:00 AM on Thursday, and being in Venice by 10:00 PM the same day. Leaving a whole day in Venice on Friday.

Things I want to do: Eat great food in beautiful towns and explore. Enjoy the bike shares! Hike and / or climb in the dolomites. I suspect I'm more likely to find a willing hiker, but if you want to climb I would be stoked! I have a 70m rope and sport climbing hardware. Lots of experience trad climbing in Yosemite at 6a, but alas did not bring my trad gear.
