    Layby near Austrian border

    September 29, 2016 in Germany

    Our journey today took us south towards the Alps on the German border with Austria. We stopped off at the beautiful lake Ammersee and launched the canoe for Will and Ade to go for a paddle then a swim. From here we could see distant outlines of the Alps on the horizon.

    Driving on, the Alpine landmass grew larger, the trees became more evergreen than deciduous and the grassy fields were dotted with small wooden barns. We were planning on staying at a stopover but time had run away with us and when we saw a layby bordered by pines we were happy to pull up for the night.Read more

    A Real Cinderella Castle

    September 20, 2017 in Germany

    Today we left Munich bright and early for the Avis car rental depot. All went smoothly; however we were a little surprised to receive an Audi Q3 SUV instead of a Mercedes sedan. We left Munich during rush hour to head to Hohenschwangau. At the start, we had to learn the different road signs and try to decipher the speed limit.

    If you know me, it might be concerning that I am the main navigator while Tyler is driving on a road without a speed limit. We did pretty well. I only missed one exit which cost us about 5 minutes on the way. Unfortunately it was a rainy day but still a beautiful drive. We had a quick bratwurst and a wander through the town of Hohenschwangau before starting the 40 minute trek up the mountain to Neuschwanstein. The castle really is stunning ... we took lots of moments to pause and look at it even though it was between a drizzle and a solid rain the whole time.

    Guided tours are the only way to see the inside of the castle. The tour was very interesting. I did not know that Neuschwanstein was never actually used because it was the brain child of King Ludwig II and he died before it was completed. It was built in the mid-1800s as an homage to old German castles of the medieval ages. The interior of the castle consists of facades that represent different operas that he was into. There were also lots of swan decorations and some amazing carved wood details. After the tour, we walked a bit further to the main viewing point on Marienbruke. Again very stunning even though we were a bit soaked. The walk back down to the town was definitely a bit easier than the way up!

    Now I'm writing this as we finish up our drive to Rothenburg ob der Tauber. Most apropos song we have listened to on the drive is Ed Sheeran's Castle On The Hill. We ended up taking a bit of a longer route through a few towns on the hillside which was gorgeous.

    I know Tyler will want to recount his feelings on the autobahn once he has finished driving but that's all for now. Ciao!

    We went to the castle today. What a place! I want one like it. Google it and read all about it. Or just wait, because I'm bringing the DVD. Beautiful country we are in. Picturesque farming country.

    Sindelsdorf, Germany

    January 2, 2011 in Germany

    Woke up to dead silence this morning as snow is falling. Beautiful little town with a blanket of fresh snow covering.
    Magical experience with girls making snow angels, tackling each other and frolicking in the snow. not another soul in sight.
    Tried out their clever little egg maker and decided to buy one.Read more

    Munich, Germany

    December 31, 2010 in Germany

    Arrived just before midnight on New year's eve.
    Moved into cottage in Sindelsdorf and spent the rest of the evening with the McGoughs in Habach
    The people in the street gathered together in the snow for the midnight celebration.
    Nardus threw a snowball at Carmie, but it ended up being more like a block of ice and she wasn't happy! Had a bruise on her face for days. Lol.Read more

    Da sind sie...

    August 27, 2016 in Germany

    .... die Alpen. Ach, was ist das für eine schöne Tour heute. Vielleicht ein wenig verpeilt, weil es der letzte Radeltag ist. Aber es ist wirklich traumhaft. Ich mache meine letzte Mittagspause und höre nur den Wind. Und einen scheiß Brummer. So, weg ist er (ätsch!). Viele Kilometer sind es nicht mehr. Ich werde hoffentlich bis Füssen noch jeden Kilometer genießen.Read more
