... and soaked in the peace of the forest. Then had a lovely soak in the bath when I got home - truly bliss!

The next day, I spent the afternoon on Yves' bike, cycling around the countryside. Yves gave me a couple of cycle routes and I managed to do them both at a very leisurely pace, stopping all the time to take photos and talk to the animals - I know, that was weird!! Everything so orderly, clean and tiday - are you sick of me saying that yet??!! I just ...

Police Adventures in Konstanz!

A travel blog entry by lyssablair on Oct 25, 2015

... the police station here. Now, even in the United States I don't like going to the police, but I had to do it. So I found a place (or at least I thought) and I set out to find it.
