German Diaries Day 6 – Munich (Part 1)

With Neuschwanstein Castle shrinking into the distance we were making our way to the final stop on our German tour; Munich. We decided to spend the last two nights just outside the centre of town so that I could take a well deserved rest from driving. I love a good road trip, but after 1000km in 5 days it was definitely time to spend a … Continue reading German Diaries Day 6 – Munich (Part 1)

Happy Blogiversary to me!

1 year! 12 whole months of blogging. I just can’t believe it. It feels like only yesterday that I started this blog, after procrastinating about doing it for a long time, and now I am celebrating it’s first birthday. What a year it has been!

German Diaries Day 6 – Neuschwanstein Castle

We woke early on the sixth day with the final day of road tripping ahead of us. We planned on spending two nights in Munich so that I could take a little respite from the continuous driving. I think that 1000 km in 7 days of driving is more than enough for anyone, don’t you? Our first stop of the day was to be Neuschwanstein … Continue reading German Diaries Day 6 – Neuschwanstein Castle

German Diaries Day 4 – Baden-Baden and a tasty trout dinner

Baden-Baden was not quite what I had expected. Whether it was my lack of research, or the specific photos I had seen on the internet, I was expecting to turn a corner into a little village nestled in the forest with some hot springs dotted around. Reality was very different. We came out of the tunnel and were met with a busy and bustling town … Continue reading German Diaries Day 4 – Baden-Baden and a tasty trout dinner

German Diaries Day 4 – Bad Mergentheim, Heilbronn and The Black Forest

It was finally time to leave the comfort of the Romantic Road and venture onward to the legendary Black Forest; driving on the infamous Autobahn we had heard so much about. We had a very long day of driving ahead, so I had planned a few pit stops along the way to break it up. The first was the lovely little town of Bad Mergentheim. … Continue reading German Diaries Day 4 – Bad Mergentheim, Heilbronn and The Black Forest
