Rothenburg, Germany

room view My Guide Book (Rick Steve's Back Door to Europe) heartily recommended this Medieval walled city and when we saw how close it was to our route we decided to check it out.

We dined on Italian food (again) and had a big beir (bier? they both look wrong) for dessert.

Looked around town a bit more in the morning then it was full steam ahead for Italy.

Our path led us through Austria and a little of Swittzerland and into the Italian Alps. It was great to start seeing signs in Italian - it looks more like Spanish and I could make educated guesses about what they were saying.


feet in the alps Our drive through the Alps had to be a quick one - but we were still able to appreciate the beauty the surrounded us. Perhaps we can spend a little more time on the return trip.
