|typical German countryside scene|
Coincidentally near where we staying in southern Germany, Ravensburg built an amusement park, and since we appreciate their games so much we figured the park would be a great. So paid a visit and had a blast.
|This was the kids favorite - driving around.|

opportunity to make our own chocolate.

of Lindau's town hall.
The first city we visited in Germany was Lindau. It is right on the border of Austria and Switzerland. The old town is on an island in Lake Constance and while we were there the city was celebrating their annual festival. We enjoyed the music, food, and a pedal boat ride in the lake.
This area of Germany has a great climate to grow fruit - we passed rows and rows of cherries, grapes, blueberries, raspberries, plums, etc. There were many farmstands and we were in heaven with the bounty as Ruby can attest!
Our last stop in this region was the city of Constance. A favorite statue was this provocative piece guarding the harbor.
