We had a somewhat leisurely morning as we packed up to depart Lorch, with breakfast available from 7:30 am and the bus leaving at 8:45. Because there was serious roadwork on the regular southbound highway, John took us up the small valley behind Lorch on narrow and winding roads. We were in woods, with a stream along the side of the road; there were a few guest houses closer to town, then just countryside. Martin played "The Ride of the Valkyries" ...

After having a hard time finding our first hotel, I then got on line and looked for options at our next location. Near Fussen, Germany, down here the Austria border where the famous Cinderella Castle of Neuschwanstein Castle. This was on our bucket list for sure.

We returned to Speyer by 6:00 after setting up a train trip to Cologne tomorrow.
Enjoy the ...
