Germany is a country with an island for old men in the Baltic Sea called Usedom
We travelled from Bavaria in the south of Germany to the Island of Usedom in the north, a distance of 500 kilometres at the speed of 180 kilometres per hour, given that there is no speed limit on the autobahns.
The little seaside town of Karlshagen, where we are staying is full of old men and women and young families with small children. For both groups the nearby beach is flat and safe and, for old men in particular, the local wildlife provides a feast for their eyes and food for their thoughts.
