The day started out really pleasant. We checked out from our hotel in Karlsruhe and found a gastropub called Vogelbrau.

Had some traditional German brunch of white veal sausages with pretzel and goulash. So, so good.  

# – Brunch!

Then we made our way to Neuschwanstein Castle and got stuck in traffic for 4 freaking hours. Honestly,  was shocked by German drivers.

I’d say the driving ethics & standards are pretty similar to Malaysians. They overtake slowly, brake unnecessarily and switch lanes at the last minute. Shocking.

I mean not all were like that but these were the ones that caused the terrible traffic jams.

Anyway, by the time we reached the Castle we realised it was a major tourist trap. It was filled with people! So chaotic and messy, especially when we have experienced nothing but pleasant and calm sightseeing in the past few days.

I didn’t even bother taking pictures.

We continued our jouney into the Swiss Alps, passing Austria and making a pit stop at the tiny, weeny country that is Liechtenstein. The drive was amazing – magnificent mountains and rivers, couldn’t get bored.

Liechtenstein is stunning! So, so, so beautiful.

We then left Liechtenstein and made our way to Switzerland. Stunning landscapes…..pictures could never do justice. You got to be here to understand it.

# – A peek of the Alps. I took this picture when we stopped by the road for a bit.

We reached our hotel overlooking the Swiss Alps. Just had dinner in a restaurant down the road – beautiful dinner.

# – Beef tartare, schnitzel & pasta, veal cordon bleu, tomato & orange ravioli soup and Swiss cheese platter. Burp!

Great start, tough middle, great finish. That basically sums up our day.

    Re German drivers, urm, they are actually more by the book than Italian or French drivers! :p

      We were expecting good driving since they are supposed to have advanced driving license and all, but didn’t feel like it haha. We suspect now it is probably the regular change of the road speed limits so when the germans slowed down or picked up speeds accordingly, it might seemed far too random for us. Parisians roads and their drivers are mad! Haha
