Day two of our Road Trip dawned another hot & sunny day and breakfast by the pool was a real treat:
After repacking our suite cases into the boot, making sure there was space for 1 x SLK Folding Roof:
We where off for our drive to Germany - Now there are cheaper routes to take, but choose to use French toll route & We have a "Sanef Tolling Tag" - So every "Peage" toll point brings a smile.
So You slow down to 30kmh, little tag in the car bleeps, barrier goes up and You can guess what happens next...!!
During a lunch stop in the shade of the trees:
I was taking the mick via WhatsApp of @davest4s
putting His roof up to get some rest-bite from the 33'c sun -- Well bad Karma had it revenge....
....as the afternoon drive progressed, spots of rain appeared on the windscreen - Now We've driven through showers before and I could see clearer sky's on the horizon, so how bad could it be?
...but this French shower had Mega Pay-Load rain drops - Yepp, it was bad:
> And a YouTube proof to show how bad it was:
Lucky it was only short lived & crossed into Germany - had a quick burst on 9km on Autobahn - Touch 120 (mph, not km/hour that is..!!)
Before climbing into the hills of the Black Forest - Though with the dark clouds catching us up & the sound of thunder, it was a quick photo stop & press on:
Then after 298miles @ 30.7mpg, made it to our hotel in Spa town of "Bald Wildbad"
