Took the scenic route through the Black Forest, north to Baden-Baden, on our way to Strasbourg. The countryside was just like a postcard. Deep green forests, little chalets with window boxes full of geraniums and happy looking goats and cows in the fields.
Stopped at Freudenstadt to have cake and coffee. Felt like we had stepped into a 1960s Coles cafeteria, full of retirees in for the cheap lunch no doubt.
Had some trouble finding the hotel as Gertie sent us to the wrong place; well we put the wrong data in. We kept going around and around a port authority building. Must remember to check postcodes in the future. We found it in the end and it gladdened our hearts, even though it is right next to an industrial site with light machinery. It is in the back blocks of nowhere and noisy.
