The week before the Triathlon we stayed in Kalbensteinberg which is a very pretty village in Bavaria. I spent a lot of time walking on the winding country roads to near villages which were also very picturesque. We had a visit to the local church and were surprised with how old it was. I think it was renovated in 1610! We stayed in the local guest house and were treated to German breakfast of bread cheese and cold meat etc. We also had a lot of our evening meals there. It was all very hearty food. The whole area is rural there were fields of wheat; corn;rye and heaps of other fruit especially cherries which were being picked at the time of our stay.
