We left Passau Germany and took to the autobahn. It was raining most of the way so it was good that we weren't sight seeing today. We had about 450km to get to Chur and over 400km was on the motorway. We were travelling at 140km when a van over took us. How rude!!! It's interesting to see that BMW drivers are the same the world over. I won't use the word here. We actually passed a Porsche. I wasn't sure if I was allowed to do that. It's also interesting to note ...
... a handle on the side of the seat before you sit down and it rolls / slides a fresh plastic seat cover on for you.

Admittedly, we did get fries with the burgers, and the trains were very punctual.

I could see and hear the cows and their bells. We had lunch up there, yet another spectacular backdrop. Once down ...

It was joined to the wall around the city, most of which is still there. It is world heritage listed. At the end of the tour we were given a bottle of white merlot, not sure why, happy all the same. I suspect it is the same wine that we had with dinner last night, very nice. It was ...
... just for the food, but for the view of the (much smaller here) Rhine valley with Liechtenstein on one side and Switzerland on the the other, the view of the castle, the service, and in particular a sommelier who spent a lot more time with me discussing the paired wines than a solo diner normally merits.
Finally, I had to go to the Prince´s winery. It seems like there are a lot of vineyards around and throughout Vaduz, but all ...
