The Black Forest 

Our five week tour of Germany was coming to an end and the Black Forest beckoned. Above is Schiltach, pretty much in the centre and a good few hours drive through tall pine trees. Apart from the lack of gateaux it’s exactly how you would expect…

Of course the famous gateaux was invented elsewhere and was named after the local cherries. The pizza and wine were delicious though.

On the way we’d stopped a few nights at Bad Worishofen. Because of the spa and mainly because we were snowed in (absolutely nothing to do with the naked spa night every Saturday, honestly)

Ravensburg en route to the Forest also had a marvellous Christmas market…..

And then upwards to Gernsbach at the top of the Black Forest. Our stops have been lead by weather and car parks which have meant some great lesser visited towns. The lovely folk of Gernsbach asked several times why were there! More beautiful buildings, amazing views, friendly bars and Christmas lights of course…

A prankster did, however, put a dead fish up our waste drainage pipe somewhere in the area…. made us jump then laugh!

Van behind in overnight fish stop…

And now to France via Switzerland  (quickly as the weather was blizzard at best).

Merry Christmas, Doz and Elaine x
