first stop was in Amberg, a beautiful walled city in Germany. This
picture was taken in a garden behind our hotel.
After a short train ride we visited Mittenwald (Germany). Below is a picture of the front of our hotel there. Note the paintings on the front. Many of the buildings in Mittenwald are similarly painted. Mittenwald is also famous for its violins. We found it to be a restful place to visit. The picture below and to the right is a view of the mountains surrounding Mittenwald.
|From Mittenwald we took the
train to Verona
and shared a car with two pleasant Korean ladies who were traveling
around Europe. Interestingly, they both began their travels alone and
met each other along the way.
