Sep 17, 2015 - Munich last day & Rothenburg ob de Tauber

Hi there, We had a lovely day today (Wed), setting out early to find a bike hire place to go for a ride. On the way we passed the "standing wave", a surfing spot where young people surf a wave made by the huge amount of water going through a channel under the road. It is quite a feat to have a successful go at this and was fun to watch them try to stay on the wave. Bit weird right in the middle of a big city with no beach or real surf for hundreds of kms. There is a beautiful, huge park right in the middle of Munich. It has streams, lakes...

Sep 17, 2015 - Rothenburg, Germany

Thursday 17 Sept Hi all, Lisle is heavily into his book tonight so I have been relegated to the writing of today's experiences. The weather turned overnight, from yesterday's hot, summery day to quite a cold, rainy one, so changeable! It meant we didn't really mind sitting on the train and relaxing as we headed into the countryside from Munich (although it was a very early start, 6.20am train) to a beautiful German town called Rothenburg ob der Tauber which is said to be one of the most "German" German towns. It has an old walled town...

Sep 16, 2015 - Munich day 4

Wed 16 Sept Earlier start this morning to find "Mikes Bikes" in Munich central so we can hire bikes to ride around the English Garden. During our walk we found the "Butlers" department store (like a House store). On the ride just entering the English Garden we came across Munich's famous surfing spot - a standing wave surfed by the young locals in a narrow water channel, one particular girl was ripping it apart. Looked like a lot of fun, but very cold water. The gardens are basically a massive Centennial Park, very scenic, with many walking...

Sep 16, 2015 - Bike ride & Dachau

Hi there, We had a lovely day today, setting out early to find a bike hire place to go for a ride. There is a beautiful, huge park right in the middle of Munich. It has streams, lakes & lovely trees and the pathways are made for bikes. It was very serene and picturesque. We ate our packed lunch alongside a lake with whit e swans, ducks & geese. We rode for about 2.5 hours and felt very refreshed. This afternoon Lisle & Steve went to visit Dachau, the memorial of the concentration camp from WW11. Ed & Marg didn't want to go so they went back...

Sep 15, 2015 - Munich

Tuesday was our first day in Munich and to begin we had to do some washing. Accomplishing that made us feel better & we ventured out to discover some of the city. We found our way to the main square called Marienplatz & were just in time to see the huge clock on the Town Hall strike 12 noon. When this happens, the figures at the top of the clock tower go around to reveal figures from history including knights on their steeds. But the time we went out it had begun to rain & by 12 pm it was quite heavy. We sat down at an outdoor cafe under a...

Sep 15, 2015 - Munich, day 3

Today we headed to BMW Museum & BMW World, one word - very impressive , even the ladies enjoyed it . The BMW museum was the standout with bikes, plane engines and obviously all the BMW cars going back from 2009 to early 1900's, when the Bevarian Motor Works commenced. They also had an extensive display on the old BMC Minis thru to the new version Minis built now by BMW. Some of the photos won't do it justice, but the whole place was so well set out - architecturally fantastic. BMW World is a building masterpiece, over 16,000 m2 floor...

Sep 14, 2015 - Travelling to Munich

Hello all, We went to the Black Light Theatre which is a traditional art here in Prague. It was a mixture of light, puppets & real actors. No speech really, but mostly mime. It was well done but because we were pretty exhausted we left after intermission & walked back to our hotel. On our last morning here we walked around the old Jewish quarter & saw the ancient Synagogue and museum. The Jewish people have had a very long & fraught history here in Europe. After packing up we left for the train station on the tram after checking many times...

Sep 14, 2015 - Munich, day 2

Hi All The Adagio Accommodation is good, with nice facilities although a fair way out from Central Munich. Today's initial duties was catching up with some necessary washing, which took up most of the morning waiting for the dryers to finish. Marg & I, now have faint greenly yellow whites after our Fluor yellow coloured bike shirts decided to run thru our washing! Around midday we got back into Munich city central (Marienplatz) to walk around, but got our first dose of rain. So we pretended to be serious shoppers in a very warm upmarket...

Sep 13, 2015 - Munich, Germany

We had a nice time in Renne , accommodation was really good, classy hotel, we got up early to catch train TVG back to Paris, & then onto Munich, via ICEc train with a change at Stuttgart, basically all day travelling in the train, reading and enjoying excellent service on these fast trains, shame we don't have these in Australia. Beats air travel hands down any time. We got a great meal (free) on the TVG, sword fish & salad, wine and coffee. Arrived Munich about 6pm, shortly after the whole Munich Bahnoff (CentralmStation)!was shut down...

Sep 12, 2015 - Germany, lots of history, culture and interesting things to see

We have completed our first week in Germany and it has been a bit surprising for us so far. We are both well and having a marvellous time. We are here on a Tauck Tour with 38 people. Our previous visit was to Berlin on the upper East side of Germany and we loved the museums especially. This trip started in the West at Frankfurt and headed South along the Southern border. Like most other countries people of regions see each other differently. People of Southern Germany see the Northerners differently and as less interesting. You can see...

Sep 4, 2015 - Refugees, traveling in the wrong direction

September 4, Oh, what a beautiful day, sunshine, hot, the perfect weather to sit in the car, whole day!!!! Leaving the hotel "Schachener Hof", after dropping my tablet on the bottom and cracking it's touchscreen, I considered it, a beautiful start of a new day for traveling. First going to the local supermarket to return the empty bottles, to get your refund in Germany, or you dispose them off properly in Austria. Keep Germany tidy, throw your litter in Austria!!! Refueling the car at the last LPG station before Austria, we crossed the...

Sep 3, 2015 - Refugees, traveling in the wrong direction

September 3 After breaking up, and paying the bill, we left Bad Kissingen with a stopover in Rothenburg-ob-der-Tauber. A nice old town in super Bavarian architecture, from medieval time. This is the most Bavarian you can get! Lousy weather (cold and rainy) forced us to visit it the American way, "it's Thursday 11:00, so this must be Rothenburg-ob-der-Tauber". Took a few pictures, the Asian way (from behind the windscreen) and left this Bavarian gem for our next stopover, Lindau am Bodensee. The driving went flawless, refueling from time to...
