Today promises to be a sunny and clear day, excellent for hiking. However, we are starting to feel our muscles so we decree it’s a day of rest and drive to the Badeparadies Schwarzwald. We spend the whole day in the Palm Oasis, taking the occasional swim or drifting in the mineral baths. We have a glass of Sekt in the pool bar, Arne visits the Galaxy dome with its water slides and attractions and we have a light lunch but most of the time we are just reading and hanging around in the comfortably high temperature under the dome. Cameras are forbidden, so no pictures to prove the tale.
