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!!!

On entry to the shop there were bowls of chocolates to sample, then in the shop there were discounted chocolates, probably the most discounted of any chocolate place I have been to. Once finished there and while dealing with the sugar high from the freebies, we headed ...
