On The Other Side

Our pack out was exhausting but not bad as far as pack outs go. We were able to clean the apartment as space cleared which meant by Friday we were done. There were some last minute touch and go items that I wasn't sure we'd finish. There were some things I completely forgot. By Friday night we were ready to relax and try to enjoy our last two full days in Germany. 





I decided we should try out the V8 motel in Boeblingen. It was hilarious. We I chose one of the novelty rooms. It was comfortable, quiet and fun.





The next day we hopped on the train and made our way down to the Bodensee. We took the ferry from Friedrickshafen to Meersburg only to find out we were there on the busiest weekend of the year. After three and a half hours of walking and one more ferry ride into Konstanz we finally found a place to sleep, quite possibly the last room available. It was 9:30pm, the kitchen was closed, and we were hungry. We asked the waiter if he could make us a sandwich he asked if we liked fish and said the chef would not mind making us a plate. In other words, excellent customer service beyond our expectations and the food was fantastic.

The next morning we walked to Mainau and saw some gorgeous scenes. 


That night we were back in Stuttgart at the Movenpick, another absolutely wonderful hotel. It's right across from the airport so it's very convenient.
Kelly came the next morning to have breakfast with us, see us off and help us schlep our ridiculous amount of baggage (all essential, really) to the airport. So ends our time in Germany. When are you all coming to see me here?

Bon Voyage! You were so totally fortunate to have spent as much time in Europe as you did! I was totally envious of you & What's his name. I'm glad you'll be back in the U.S. with us and maybe, just maybe we'll be able to spend some time together again! I've sure missed you! Welcome back. ~J~

Great pictures - I love that house too - and the car that thinks it's a bed. Looks like you ended your time with quite a fun adventure. Safe trip!

That hotel looks fun! Might have to try that one day for laughs. And the Moevenpick hotel was beyond beautiful. I was so shocked b/c the outside doesn't give it away! Konstanz - gorgeous as always. Love you guys!
