SATURDAY EVENING

Av EvaLena Hallgren - Lördag 17 juni 20:11

Right now we're somewhere North of Munich.

We visited another castle 

Here, where stallions once breathed hitched to Grand coaches, horse-powered engines now roar. Augustusburg Castle houses the biggest motorcycle museum of Europe and, thus, is one of the most popular destinations for motorcycle fans.

       


Already visible from afar, the old hunting lodge rises high above the Zschopau River Valley. Completed in 1572, the castle is still called the »Crown of the Ore Mountains« today. The Castle does not only impress with its historic atmosphere. There is hardly another castle in Germany offering such a variety of cultural events and educational opportunities. Beside the Motorcycle Museum, the visitor will find exhibitions of game and birds, of coaches as well as the history of hunting and the castle itself.

 


 


It is located516 m above sea level and the drive getting there was gorgeous. Almost to the top, there was a parking space and you could take a cable car going up. Mom stopped there asking if they let dogs on and that was no problem like in most of the German places.


The wait was too long so Mom decided to take Lucy all the way up. It was a narrow winding road and beautiful.


This time I hiked along with the promise I get to stop whenever I wanted to. Well, that was a promise she didn’t keep because I didn’t get to sniff ALL interesting spots on the way…………...Mom said we still be on that mountain side then. 

 

 


We made a quick walk through the MC museum, and that’s because I didn’t like it. It would have been fine if it wasn’t because of all the motorcycle noises. The guys loved to push all the buttons to listen to the engines. I think Mom liked it too but it scared me so we went around it quickly.

                                                 

   




We continued south and are now somewhere north of Munich which we are only passing by. No more big cities was another promise, we’ll see how long that lasts.

 


Anyway, it’s very tiring to drive on the big Autobahn it’s so hypnotizing so Mom is ready to fall asleep, so that’s the reason we’re now staying at an Auto Hof.


The small roads are much more exciting but we aren't getting much ahead then.

we are definitely the smallest vehicle here........................but that doesn't intimidate Lucy one bit

 


all is well, talk to you tomorrow.

Yesterday was not a fun day, it was hotter than hell, and Mom kept on driving south because she wanted to get closer to Rome, which we are going to today. If this campsite was nicer we would have stayed another night, but the toilets !!!!!!! No paper...

Today has been a rough day for both of us, I didn't sleep well again because the Thunder returned and they way it feels right now it may return again tonight.  It's 90 degrees and no breeze so Mom had the brilliant idea to take the bus in early and...

Last night we didn't find a campsite so we pulled over and slept at a parking space by a ski chalet. So did several others, so we felt safe. The view all around us was magnificent.   I had a visitor who came to see me, her name was Lilly (made m...

After lots of disappointments due to wrong information about buses at the Garmisch RVsite, we got up real early and drove to Partenkirchen, and parked at a bakery where Mom bought the most delicious bread ever. Germans may not know how to prepare a h...
