14 days later and we have come full circle back to Frankfurt. Our wonderful guide, Uli, said that we had gone 2700 miles during that time and I know that I have at least that many pictures on the camera card waiting to be saved to disc, sorted, and made into a photo memory book.
This morning we left Oberammergau to return to Frankfurt. To be very honest, it was another long day on the bus with very little to see – this is the biggest complaint we have, traveling that many miles in 2 weeks means that a lot of time is spent traveling, not sightseeing. For example, today we left the hotel at 8:00, had a half hour rest stop at 9:30, arrived in Rothenburg (more on that soon) for a two hour visit, then back on the road to arrive here at 4:30 – that is more time on the. Bus than I prefer.
Rothenburg is another very scenic medieval town and we definitely enjoyed our time there. Unfortunately, rain has been a persistent companion on this trip and we spent a lot of time dodging raindrops again. Pictures coming soon….
We have definitely enjoyed this trip and the amazing scenery. It was our first land tour after many cruises and I plan on writing our thoughts on comparisons between the two very soon.
