Yesterday I got to thinking about our trip. Yes I did get tried of the same breakfast. Bread, sliced meat, cheese, fruit sometimes and usually a soft boiled egg or in Italy prepared dry eggs (Uak). But as we drove thru Germany every little borg had a church. Also on Sundays most business were closed. Only if we in the USA would adopt that.
The drivers are crazy in Italy and really dont stay between the lines. Stop lights are only a suggestion so watch out when you cross the street.
In Germany the drivers are horn happy if you dont do what you should be doing. And you better use your turn signals. Most drivers on the autobahn drove a reasonable speed but when you didnt have a speed limit some were going by at 200 km (124 miles per hour).
We saw some beautiful spots in Italy really loved Assisi and Lake Maggiore. In Venice we went to one of the other islands Burano a little fishing village with brightly colored homes.
In Germany the highlight was the salt mine tour near Salzburg. Some of the lakes were picturesque but lots of hikers boy do they love to hike even on the streets of some cities do you see people walking with walking poles.
Rick and I feel like we have seen enough of Italy and Germany. We had a opportunity and we took it and we enjoyed every minute.
