Bavaria to Bodensee

We set out in our Audi A4-Citroen Picasso caravan through Bavarian countryside towards Lake Konstanz (aka Bodensee), stopping along the way to take in the impressive landscape.

Schloss Neuschwanstein

We made it to Lake Constance that night after dark and met up with our gracious hosts - my brother-in-law's brother and his family. They put us up for a couple of nights, fed us delicious food, and showed us the sights around town.

If only we could have our own private local tour guide in every town...

On to Munich. By this point I had abandoned my travel journal, so my narrative here will be lacking. The photos are chronological and will have to speak for themselves!

First stop: Dachau.

Next: to the streets.


The following day: biking through town.

Our next moves were South and West along the autobahn where we caught glimpses of forests, lakes, castles, mountains and meadows as we made our way toward Konstanz. Auf wiedersehen München!
