Guten Tag from Füssen, Germany! Today makes five countries in five days: Spain, France, Italy, Austria, and Germany. We might not have crossed the Rubicon, but we did cross the Alps in three countries - Italy, Austria, and Germany. While the drive did last 6 hrs, the scenery was beautiful, when we weren’t in tunnels. The Alps are amazing. Some of the cliffs are barren gray stone while others are a luscious green. Villages are tucked into the valleys while castle and fortresses tower on peaks. Once we arrived in Füssen, we went to dinner than wandered the town. I noticed there is a lot less English in this town, which is okay, because my mom speaks some German. Up on a hill there is a small castle near the edge of town. We walked around the empty castle and realized something was different. There was no noise besides the birds and occasional bell ring. Germany on a Sunday night is so much more quite than Florence.
