July 31 Wednesday
We all decided to take the train to Mittenwald Germany. Derek decided to hang out at the hotel and rest.
Had a great lunch at a sandwich shop that was roasting pork chicken and ribs. We had the ham steak on a bun it was delicious.
The rain gave us a break letting us put up the umbrellas and look somewhat normal.
Veronica is an expert shopper. She found a German Dirndl that was just right for our granddaughter.
The rain returned and we found a fine coffee shop that also had food and ice cream. This was the best cappuccino I had on the trip, must have been a 12oz mug. The ice cream was excellent.
John and Julie liked the look of the ice cream and ordered some. However, something was lost in the translation and they got hot chocolate.
Sitting under the cafe umbrellas enjoying our break. We were waited on by a young lady who reminded us of the Soup Nazi on Steinfeldt she told us to "SIT DOWN AND WAIT". We all got a laugh from her service, she must have been having a bad day.
Henry and Becky had Coffee, Diet Coke and a pastry that was so good it was gone before I could get a picture.
Our rooms, the food, and service were all excellent at Krumers Post in Seefeld Austria.
We gathered before leaving Krumers Post for a group photo. Next, stop Hinterzarten Germany.
Thursday, August 1
We left Seefeld and headed for Hinterzarden Germany.
The Olympic ski jumps as we leave Seafield.
Inside one of the many tunnels we passed through.
Well deserved butt break.
After many days on the road, we are all getting a little tired. The weather this day is almost perfect.
Big puffy clouds and sunshine.
Just follow the signs and you can't get lost.
Veronica and I enjoying the Ducati Multistrada.
Approaching another tunnel.
We enter Hinterzarden Germany, every window has a flower box.
Our hotel for the night.
This was an older hotel but very nice. The rooms were smaller but clean. The restaurant at the hotel had very slow service. and "rump steak" not to be confused with ribeye or NY strip.
There was a rail stop just behind the hotel.
It was nice to have a covered garage to put the bikes in for the evening. Locked up and dry.
Derek deciding on his beer for the evening.
Catching up with email while we are waiting.
Decisions for dinner made. Now the wait begins. We were told to be at dinner by 5:30 PM to avoid a long wait. We were still at the restaurant at 9:00 PM. Glad we did not show up later. Only one person spoke English but he was very helpful.
The famous Rump Steak at least it was not overcooked.
I stayed safe and went with the spaetzle it was very good. The breakfast the next morning was just OK but not fantastic. We had been spoiled by the spread at Krumer Post.
More in part 6, we are off to France and better food.
Back to part 4. To part 6.
