We made it to our German Home where we were greeted by Anke with homemade pastries shaped into roses and given asylum until we get a new President. We shared some travel stories, heard all about her amazing months long bike/camp trip both thru New Zealand and Australia and the more recent 2 weeks thru Austria. She and Jens (Yens) her husband have the absolute most coolest enviable life. We had dinner at their favorite Bavarian resturant and Julius joined us when he got off work. Followed by wine and schapps and more shnapps at their home with so many laughs and shared stories until we stumbled into bed at midnight. Perfect night! Wednesday we got up and went into town for Market Day. Had yummy Bavarian weiss wurst and pretzels. (White boiled sausages) not as good as nuremurgers but tasty. Then gelato, church tour, city tour and last few laughs and stories before in the car for Frankfurt by 2. We all hugged and promised to see each other again “soon”.
Really wonderful way to end our Germany Vacation. Jerome did a rock star job of driving. We are both kinda done and just want easy fight home tomorrow and no hurricane at home!
Some Driving thoughts:
Its hard to not be able to look things up while driving. I lay the seat down and do crunches on our long drives. Ive gained easily 10lbs on this trip. I brought 3 workout outfits and tennis shoes. Havent used them once. Wasted space! Every hour or so we split either a lindt truffle that I bite in 1/2 or a stroop waffle. Cant imagine why Im 2 pant sizes wider.
Look up windmill energy production. Windmills everywhere!
The autobahn is stupid. I get that there is no speed limit and you cant pass on the right. And it seems everyone is confident, no road rage and somehow more respectful but when you have people doing 100miles an hour and then a car gets in front of you to pass someone he is going 65miles an hour so everyone is constantly slamming on breaks in the fast lane. Just make the speed limit 80 or something less break lights. I hate it.
