Sandals are light, small, and multi-purpose. Take a shower in them (oh, and avoid leather for this purpose and for general water and rain tolerance). Set up the tent in them. Heck, I even did a white-water rafting trip in them. Get a pair that are easily adjustable, put on warm wool socks, and you can go hike for a few miles.
I took a Sea to Summit pillow on my tour last year. Best gear addition I've ever made. Infinitely better than clothes in a stuff sack that I previously used.
"You can take bicycles on board an ICE train as long as they are folded away in a bike bag.that the bike must also fold, like a Bike Friday, Dahon, S&S coupled frame or similar? If it requires a true folding bike, just having the bag won't be enough.
If you’d like to take a bike that doesn’t fold away, you may want to consider the luggage courier service. Your bike will be delivered to your destination for a charge of (currently) €25.80."
I'd also thought of getting some waterproof pannier covers, but some experienced tourers I spoke with told me that when they've tried that, if they went through a significant downpour, water would either eventually seep onto/into the bags anyway, or would get in when they removed the covers, so I took their advice and didn't go that route.
