Over the Alps

It's hard to navigate and drive at the same time

sunny 24 °C


I knew I was doomed within the first 5 minutes of leaving the driveway. Mom was trying to set the GPS and daughter was reading the map. I just headed south to the Alps. We had to stop twice to figure things out before we ever got to the autobahn outside of Stuttgart. We were off to a great start on our week long adventure.
We made it to Austria in 2 1/2hours and another two hours to the gasthaus. That was with four stops: one where we met a work colleague from Stuttgart overlooking the Zugspitz and mom discovered coed bathrooms; one to purchase a tax vignette for the windshield; once to hit an outlet store to loolk for lederhosen for dauhter; and once to keep mom and daughter from getting sick on winding mountain roads.

GPS did not recognize the gasthaus address or coordinates. Luck was on our side when the owner was a block a way shopping and we were able to follow her even higher up the mountain.

Great hotel with a fantastic view!
