2nd Stop: Fussen
From memory, the drive to Fussen took us more or less 3 hours. Dominic took charge in driving as I don't have any driving license. I merely served as an entertainer keeping everyone awake as it was already past midnight during that time. Good thing that we brought a navigator as it would be hard to locate our hotel by just relying on the road signs.
We checked in at Hotel Seespitz which is situated near a lake. This was the view that greeted us in the morning:
The view was breathtaking. I felt like I was in a movie or a dream. I can stay all day admiring this view with a good book and a cup of coffee by my side. But we had to go to the main reason why we were in Fussen, the Neuschwanstein Castle.
We then had lunch at a restaurant with the castle as the background. I had pork knuckles for main course and strawberry crepe for dessert.

On the following day, we drove further to a place where they say you can get a good view of Germany, Switzerland and Austria. It's like being in three countries at once. I felt for Dominic as the drive was a bit long. We actually had crossed the border of Austria getting to that place. Unfortunately, it was too foggy that afternoon.
|The only consolation for the long drive is the magnificent view of the countryside|
|It was too foggy. Even a ferry ride wouldn't guarantee that we will get the view that we want.|
|I forgot the name of the small town|
|Food trip once again. This time trying out the breads.|
