... just spinning and they weren't moving anymore.
At this point we really wished we had snow chains! We kept going anyway and pulled over at a servo to see if they sold them (no luck) so we kept going. It was mostly on the Autobahn the rest of the way so we figured it should be fine. We then encountered what is known here as a Stau - basically a huge traffic jam which backs up for ages. The road was very snowy and ...
... it was morning tea time and handed out the muffins from this mornings breakfast buffet- a brawl erupted over which one belonged to who.
Not so 'Romantic' with 5 kids in tow!
We saw snow on the ground for the first time this holiday & were surrounded by snow capped alps.
We were very aware that this was our last full day in Germany. We have loved our time here. Dan said it is his favourite (I think it gets bonus points for the food).

Today we went to Schwangau to visit Neuschwanstein, the iconic castle of Mad King Ludwig. He ruled Bavaria for 22 years until his mysterious death in 1886 at the age of 40. He was called "Mad" because of his eccentric life and lavish spending. He spent 17 years building his dream castle but got to live in it only 172 days. At that point he was declared mentally unfit to rule and carried away. He was found dead in a lake two days later.
