  • Schloss Linderhof
  • Schloss Linderhof in Ettal was another famous creation by Ludwig II of Bavaria. This gem was the only building which was completed
    while the king was still alive. As a consequence, Ludwig spent most of his later life at this … Continue reading → [続きを読む]
  • Lake Plansee
  • After paying homage to the Wieskirche, we left Steingaden and headed for Linderhof, another palace created by Ludwig II. We were d
    irected to take A17 and then 179 once we crossed the border between Germany and Austria. We could have … Continue reading → [続きを読む]
  • The Wieskirche
  • Visiting the Wieskirche, the Pilgrimage Church of Wies, was another highlight of our road trip. Thanks to Google, we did know what
    to expect from this 18th century church. Still, seeing the actual place with our own eyes, which was … Continue reading → [続きを読む]
  • A night in Schwangau
  • Only ?6 for parking?! I was mightily impressed as I stood in front of a ticketing machine at a public car park of Hohenschwangau
    . My car was in there for nearly half-day! What a bargain. If this was in London, … Continue reading → [続きを読む]
  • Spätzle@Hotel Müller
  • The reason why I didn’t reserve tickets for Neuschwanstein Castle was because I weren’t sure if mum’s knees could take the stress the visit may cause. As the castle was built on top of the steep cliff and the access … Continue reading → [続きを読む]
  • Bella & Balloon
  • Is a dangerous combination. She loves playing with it but it doesn’t last forever… Her first encounter with balloons was at my neighbour’s son’s first birthday party which we attended recently. She discovered these mysterious objects ? light, … Continue reading → [続きを読む]
  • Road to Füssen
  • Getting to Füssen from Augsburg was easy. From the outskirts of Augsburg, B17 would take us there all the way. The unfolding scen
    ery changed dramatically after passing exit 69 for Landsberg am Lech. The window screen was filled with the … Continue reading → [続きを読む]
  • Pasta & pizza @ Augsburg
  • Where shall we have our dinner tonight? Mum and I pondered as we alighted from the tram. It was around half six and we were rather
    hungry. I remembered Albert the Hotelier gave us a flyer of his beer garden, … Continue reading → [続きを読む]
  • Tram ride @ Augsburg
  • Finally, we were there, at Moritzplatz, to embark on our very first tram journey but we still had a problem. ‘What we gonna do with this carnet business? It just looks like a tape with stripes!’ Unlike the carnet of … Continue reading → [続きを読む]
  • Lost in translation @ Augsburg
  • Ok, Augsburg did defy our expectation. We were vaguely imagining the place to be crammed with medieval buildings, cobbled streets,
    gothic churches and so on. Instead, we found the city kind of modern and rather ordinary. Sure, we shouldn’t have … Continue

  • Xmas shopping in June
  • Apart from their immaculately restored mediaeval townscape, Rothenburg ob der Tauber is famous for Käthe Wohlfahrt’s Christmas Village. This all-year Christmas store has two shops on Harrngrasse, off Marktplaz. ‘I think I’m gonna find some gifts for my close friends … Continue reading → [続きを読む]
  • Rothenburg in dusk
  • One thing I totally misjudged about our road trip was the amount of time it would require if we wanted to visit every single town
    along Romantic Road. I thought we could get away with visiting several towns a day … Continue reading → [続きを読む]
  • Snowball in June
  • No, it was not a real snowball but a pastry named as Schneeball (snowball), which was the most famous sweet in Rothenburg ob der T
    auber. And I forgot to taste it! I blame the heat wave, which was upon us … Continue reading → [続きを読む]
  • Dinner at Reichsküchenmeister
  • We were very happy to see the sign of our hotel, Hotel Zum Breiterle after enduring a stressful car journey on A3. I recounted to
    a receptionist how hellish our journey from Würzburg was as she handed over me a … Continue reading → [続きを読む]
  • The Residenz & Train
  • My apology for not uploading a post recently. I have been dog-tired for the past few days due to too much walking ? my friends are visiting London and I volunteer to show them around. Two more days of hard … Continue reading → [続きを読む]
  • Beer garden at Alter Kranen
  • Beer, ice cold beer, that is what we want! Mum and I strongly agreed while fanning our sweaty faces with folded maps given at the
    hotel early on. But where? Where can we get our hands on chilled long glasses … Continue reading → [続きを読む]
  • Pre supper walk in Würzburg
  • ‘Let’s walk to Alte Mainbrücke!’ Mum and I stood up from the bench and started walking westward along Domstraße… The church at the end of the street was Bischöiches Ordinariat. As we headed to the bridge, we came across a … Continue reading → [続きを読む]
  • London Pride 2017
  • I must have a break from our road trip memoir today. There are yet bucket-loads to write about and I want to carry on while my mem
    ory is still fresh. However, today was a day for Pride in London, and … Continue reading → [続きを読む]
  • Angel on Autobahn 81
  • Bonjour, Strasbourg! A view from the breakfast room of Hôtel Cathédrale… We could see the square slowly getting ready to receive another tide of visitors… From Strasbourg to Würzburg, our next destination, it was estimated to be a 3 to … Continue reading → [続きを読む]
