I give up.. After over 12 hours waiting at the port in Dover without seeing any movement I am trying to find my way out of here. Belgium also closed the borders for German transits, so another obstacle on the way. I spoke with the police and they said it takes so long because they are testing 30 people at a time very very slowly. Even after 12 hours waiting I had still at least 500 cars in front of me.. Truck driver are not even getting a test. They get send straight back to the testing units on the motorway... ๐Ÿ™„ What a system.. ...

It happens so rarely that we have a third person view of our journey, so it's worth an extra post. @hannaplant who invited us to stay with her in Edinburgh took this on our way to her apartment.

Home sweet home ๐Ÿก๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ• Zuri and I made it back to Germany! And we got surprised by a rather uncommon winter wonderland. ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘ŒAfter being with such wonderful people the last year it will be hard to adapt being alone again but the good thing about it is, that I have more time than ever to finalize all the videos from mine and Zuris cycling adventures for Youtube ๐Ÿ˜๐ŸŽ‰ you can find us on YouTube with 43 videos already.

I hope you all had a good Christmas.๐ŸŽ…๐ŸŽ„๐Ÿ˜Š Zuri and I are still stuck in the UK and will celebrate the new year here as well. Our next attempt to go back home to Germany will be on the 3. Of January. Fingers crossed ๐Ÿคž

I used my additional time here and designed the calendars for 2021. Since the pictures, that you wanted were so different from each other, I decided that everyone gets exactly the pictures they choose.
I will get the calendars printed tomorrow, so if someone wants one, you have until tomorrow morning (31.12) to choose your favorite pictures under this link:

Ich hoffe, ihr hattet alle ein schรถnes Weihnachtsfest. ๐ŸŽ…๐ŸŽ„๐Ÿ˜Š Zuri und ich sitzen immer noch in GroรŸbritannien fest und werden auch in das neue Jahr hier reinfeiern. Unser nรคchster Versuch, zurรผck nach Deutschland zu kommen, wird am 3. Januar sein. Drรผckt uns die Daumen ๐Ÿคž

Ich habe meine zusรคtzliche Zeit hier genutzt und die Kalender fรผr 2021 gestaltet. Da die Bilder, die ihr euch gewรผnscht habt, so unterschiedlich ausgefallen sind, habe ich beschlossen, dass jeder genau die Bilder bekommt, die er sich ausgesucht hat.

Ich werde die Kalender morgen drucken lassen, wer also einen haben mรถchte, hat bis morgen frรผh (31.12) Zeit, sich unter diesem Link seine Lieblingsbilder auszusuchen:

Happy Christmas to you ๐ŸŽ…๐ŸŽ„โค๏ธ I hope that you had a lovely time today whereever you celebrate today.

After not being able to go home the day before yesterday I was quite sad yesterday to have Christmas without my family. We Germans have our big Christmas day on the 24. So it was quite strange for me to have a rather "normal" day yesterday since here in Britain Christmas is celebrated on the 25. But today was a really nice day. We had a really nice walk with some friends of a friend, I could borrow a Christmas outfit, had a really nice vegan Christmas dinner, Zuri got spoiled with bones and real turkey and we even had a beautiful sunset. And I think I got the cutest Christmas wrapping ever (a present wrapped as a dog ๐Ÿ˜). A nice Christmas over all and I am one experience richer experiencing Christmas in a different culture ๐Ÿ˜€ but fingers crossed that the border chaos in Dover will end in a couple of days and Belgium is allowed transit soon so that I can go home to see my family.. โค๏ธ

Merry Christmas to you all ๐ŸŽ„ ๐Ÿฅณ ๐Ÿบ Zuri looks wonderful ๐Ÿถ ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Glad that you’re being looked after and Zuri looks so happy. Beautiful photos. Here’s hoping that it’s not long before you can get back home.

Good to know you found yourself in a better place than Dover and you’re both happy ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Wünsche euch fröhlichen Stefanietag. Der Duft vonโœจ๐ŸŽ„ Weihnachten soll euer Herz erfreuen. ๐Ÿ˜„

Hoffe das klappt! Gruß Hartmut Pucken und noch eine schöne Zeit!

Merry Christmas!

I'm tiered and so is Zuri.. We're on our way back to Germany and stuck in Dover for 5 hours now. Less than 1 km to the port but the port is closed for hours now. They say it is because some truck drivers are protesting because they have no toilets and that the police just closed the harbour for everyone until they stop. Now people from different backgrounds walking on the streets and mixing with one another before going back to all these European countries and all this in tier 4, where all the inhabitans themselves have a strict lockdown. Sounds like a virus accelerant to me. I'm still having a 9 hours journey ahead of me as soon as we can move again...and I am on my way already for another 9. I didn't even know if I was able to go back yesterday because Germany banned all transports of foreign people and German residents to the country until the end of the year (even with a negative covid test!) and the French first only wanted to open the border to their own citizens... Now the French border is officially open but the port in Dover remains closed with 1000s of people in front of it like me desperate to go home.. @ Dover, UK ... See MoreSee Less

Hallo ich hoffe kommst bald rüber... Wir hatten Glück waren am 16 Dezember in die ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ญ gereist. Sitzen jetzt aber in einer Rückwirkenden Quarantäne ๐Ÿ™„ Tschüss und viel Glück

What an awful end to the year for you Iris ! I do hope you get home safe and sound, but I do hope you’ll be back ๐Ÿฅฐ Haste ye back !

Iris, wie geht es dir? Hast du es geschafft, auf eine Fähre zu steigen? Geht es dir und Zuri gut?

I hope you and Zuri will be ok :'( What a nightmare :'(

I'll cross fingers that it might work soon!!! Hope you're safe and Zuri manages to help you over this night! Take care!

Oh no. Are you on your bike? Is there anywhere down there that you can stay if you can’t get a ferry tonight? Have you got food and water for Zuri? I guess being in Tier 4 makes it difficult. What a nightmare for you.

OMG Iris, I am so sorry you and Zuri are stuck in this chaos! Wished we could help somehow! I hope you can soon continue on your journey home. Plese keep us updated. Big hugs xxxx

Roli Haechler seid ihr noch in Zimi ? Hab da gestern beim joggen ein Brit-car stehen sehn ....

Zuri and I have been on the road again! What a great feeling to be back in the saddle. Way to much time passed since we came back from Scotland. We went on a day trip to #clumberpark and cycled 25 km around there. We went through this area on our way to Scotland on the Cyclepath 6. I didn't remember from the name of the place but I remembered right away when we got there. It brought the last cycling journey back to life because I remembered the struggles we went through on this day with all the barriers in the forest ๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿšด๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ• but luckily this was a few km north from there. Even Zuri knew the way around the area straight away ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ• it's a beautiful place and we'll worth a visit! โค๏ธ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿšดโ€โ™‚๏ธ @ Clumber Park National Forest ... See MoreSee Less

Zuri is getting herself ready and is making space for her wintercoat. She is loosing bags of hair right now ๐Ÿ•๐Ÿ˜ฌ what could be better than to share the hair with her dog friend George, who is always freezing. He got a nice winter coat filling now. It is already tested and approved off ๐Ÿ˜โ„๏ธ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ• ... See MoreSee Less

Was trying to work out if Zuri is an Australian shepherd or collie been looking at pic's to see if she has a Bobtale but you can't see her tail in the pic's...lol Anyone know her breeding?

Is George jealous of all Zuri’s travels?

Das ist ja so ein spilleriger Hund und Zuri steht in ihrer Kraft!

Guck mal ist das nicht süß?
