Some photos of Bavaria

We went to the Altmuehltal in Bavaria for a couple of days. It´s about 60 miles northern of Munich and we met the German National Cook Team (never heard before...) In that area you find "Boxbeutel Wine" - very famous but not my taste.

It's so good to see people can enjoy life... We're in a city where people seldom think of enjoying life...

Thanks and yes we´ve had a good time. First we went to Ueberlingen which is at the Bodensee (in the Switzerland - Austria - Germany triangel) to Marcus Piecha, then to Ravensburg and to Beilngries next to Ingolstadt. There we visited the Audi museum - nothing I have to see again. Weather - daily sun, 30°C, at night rain.

It was our last journey in 2007 (a present for our 25th anniversary from my sister). Our roof needs reparation work and Norway we´ll visit next year.

No, no Kevin.

Our route: --> Bielefeld --> Paderborn --> Kassel --> Würzburg --> Stuttgart --> Stockach --> Ravensburg --> Ingolstadt --> Beilngries --> Nürnberg --> Würzburg --> Kassel --> Paderborn --> Bielefeld --> Minden

There is no Frankfurt, no Kaiserslautern and not near to (BTW: I asked Karin to visit you first, but she said:"Pardon, to Kevin? To this strong smelling and hard drinking Las Vegas boy? Never!"

Awesome trip mate, Thanks for the pics. I always wanted to travel to many places in germany, but my working position wasn't too stable on that contract so I had to leave after 7 months. I did travel alot around the north western area's And I loved it. Always awesome scenery and amazing roads for the bike. Hopefully one day I will be able stay longer.

Yes it is Gene. You find hops and wine in that area. German wine farmer have often both and they use it for their own products and for their compediteurs - the brewers. In Franken you find the dryest wine - the Boxbeutel. Uaaaahhhh.

Gero,

I think Karin confused me with you and/or Gabus about the hard drinking you guys had me under the table.

OK, I just looked at the map and Würzburg isn't as close as I though...lucky you.

Stacey and I went for a drive Sunday down into France. Very beautiful. We thought we were in the Redwoods of Northern California. And the coolest thing is it's only about 45 minutes away.

You´re right Kevin. The Alsace is beautiful - Karin and me went there last year on a trip to Colmar/Freiburg. If you´re looking for a hotel:

near Karlsruhe - http://www.villa-hammerschmiede.de (one of the best hotels in Germany)
near Saarbrücken, at the French border - www.bliesbrueck.de

Hello vacantionist

Munich is great for relax - the weather, the beergardens - everything is working a little slower than anywhere and it&#180;s much nicer than Milano or Berlin. But for me unbeatable: Hamburg and Paris.
