After we spontaneously took the train to Sylt last year in the pre-season and spent an almost perfect day there that felt like being on vacation, we couldn't shake off the thought of repeating it all over again.

All summer long, I have felt this desire. We had no "real" vacation, apart from rides with our gravel bikes around Hamburg and a tour to Lübeck, all thanks to the pandemic.

Since I spent a lot of time and vacation by the sea as a child, I had a little wanderlust for the sea, more specifically for the North German coast and for its fresh salty air and the feeling that spreads inside you when you are by the sea.

But that train ride of about 6 hours proved to be a more significant obstacle this year: Do we want to sit on a train for that long? How can we travel "most safely"?
