    Took the train from Munich to Venice , passing though Verona , got to see the country side change from little hamlets near the Alps to countryside vineyards. We arrived in the evening and took a Vaporetto ride up the Grand Canal while listening to Rick Steves audio guide , then we went around St. Marks square while also taking in an audio tour. Had dinner in an Italian tapas restaurant and roamed the practically empty but safe streets at night.Read more

On the more cheerful now we also learnt about how intrinsic beer is to the city and we had lunch on a beer hall.Read more

    We spent the day around the area next to Neuschwanstein castle in the Bavarian country side, its one of the incredibly expensive glamout castles commissioned by the Bavarian King Ludwig II which was 75% complete before his suspicious death when the government coffers got nearly empty, it inspired Disney studios for Sleeping Beauty and probably the Disney logo.Read more
