A little bit of Germany
16.10.2014 18 °C
Autumn is in full swing in Switzerland/Germany/Austria. The leaves have turned and everything is beautiful shades of red and gold. I mentioned three countries because Lake Konstanz borders all three. In our last three days of staying in Konstanz we had a car and drove to various spots around the lake. I couldn't tell you how many times we crossed in and out of countries. Even our hotel, in the middle of town, was two blocks from the Swiss border in Germany. At least Germany and Austria have the same currency, but it's mostly backwards and forwards between Euro and Swiss Francs. I was very pleased we'd planned to have a car as my shoulder injury has limited my mobility somewhat. I think we are finally quite used to being on the right hand side of the road now, just in time to come home and switch back.
We drove through lots more gorgeous little historic European villages and also saw the huge waterfall at Rheinfall. In the other direction, we went to Friedrichshafen and Jim went to the Zepplin museum. It was good for Jim to come back into holiday mode after his course, before flying home.
