    Dinkelsbühl + Feuchtwangen

    October 16, 2017 in Germany

    Cool names for towns hey? We visited some towns on the Romantische Straße (Romantic Road) tourist route today. Dinkelsbühl is one of the best preserved medieval towns in Germany. We followed the city calls around past a number of the watch towers through into the city centre. More of the same in Feuchtwangen.

    As we left Feuchtwangen we noticed school must have been in recess and there were a lot of teenage children smoking. Whilst we were stopped for groceries on the way home, I noticed a rather odd billboard advertisement for cigarettes. This caused me to look up WHO prevalence of smoking to discover than 32% of the population over the age of 15 smoke! It is even higher than Italy and France, and in those two countries we though we would be suffering from nicotine withdrawal by the time we got home from passive smoking. By contrast. Australia is 16%. Here's hoping Germany's health care system is indeed fabulous!

    We found eating outside in lovely weather in France and Italy to be almost impossible if we were not prepared to be shrouded in smoke. Australia should be proud of its tough legislative stance on cigarette advertising, sales restrictions and smoking in public places.

    Autobahn

    October 15, 2017 in Germany

    Alrighty, I am not cut out for this 'no speed limit' caper. Craig got up to 163kph on the autobahn today. I was a nervous wreck, and yet we were not even in the fast lane and cars were passing us at great speed even then. The kids were in the background going "weeeeee" when he sped up to overtake a "slow" person. I was white knuckled, eyes closed, heart rate elevated. I swear I lost weight expending nervous energy on the 1.5 hours of the autobahn.

    At one stage we passed one BMW towing another BMW with 3 metres between them doing 130kph on the autobahn. I just about died from anxiety as the car being towed was drifting as we passed (doing more than 130).

    I am much more a 'quiet country lane' type of gal. Much more sedate and less stress. Happy to be the tortoise, not the hare.

    October 16, 2017 in Germany

    Today we went to Dinklsbühl. Here we found some tea and coffy. It was a small little café with a huge detailed painting on it. There was small crystallized suger lumps on the side of our plate with a cute noted tea bag. Soon after we stop at atanother cute town. At this next town it was called Feuchtwangen. Here we found some lunch and three sports shops in the same street. It was at the red building and other colourful buildings around it. Findlay thought it was so hard to resist the deport shops. We took a walk around town and looked at small cute shops and homes. We came back through a nice little park and went home in our car. On the way we stopped at the shopping centre and got dinner.
