I was a bit tired of photographing, so there aren’t many of Bavaria. But in exchange you will see more motorbike photos. 😉
Italy by motorcycle, part 11
22 May 2012
From Innsbruck we continued via Leutasch and Giessenbach, then into Germany to Mittenwald, the beautiful Walchensee with its turquoise water, Kochel am See, Geretsried, where our GPS led us over the most adventurous little paths that were actually only intended for agricultural vehicles , but now we were there and just drove on, through the beautiful Loisach valley and finally to Munich. Bavaria is beautiful!
We would have liked to stay a little longer in Kochel. Maybe we’ll come back there sometime. Bavaria has quite a few beautiful corners to offer. Although Tyrol has one trump card over Bavaria, the Haflinger horses!
In Munich we got „loaded“ onto the train. That was easy and quick.
When I saw our cabin, which was in the basement of the sleeping car, I had to swallow hard. Tiny was the right word. It was only a bit of an exaggeration to say that you had to go in backwards, because you couldn’t turn around in the room. In order to be able to endure it in there, we had to leave the door open for a while so that I could get used to the narrowness. I’m not generally claustrophobic, but there I was almost at my limit. After a while it felt less bad, and we were able to close the door. The toilet was in the hallway, not too far away, and the beds were wonderful, much better than in the luxury cabin on the way there. Since we had saved money for the cabin, we allowed ourselves the luxury of ordering the train breakfast for the next morning.

The train arrived in Hamburg-Altona around 8 a.m. There you drove from the train right through the middle of the station’s hall. I found that a bit strange with all the people walking around there.
From Hamburg we took the motorway to Puttgarden, took the ferry across to Denmark and drove home.

Both my husband and I consider this trip to be one of the best we have taken together so far. There is also something special about riding a motorcycle. You are not as isolated from your surroundings as you are in a car. I enjoyed that very much.
Now we have a caravan instead of a motorcycle, which we also really enjoy. We are grateful that we have been able to make so many interesting trips and try things out in our lives.
Now we will see if we can ever visit Madeira again, or will be able to go to Norway and Canada. Germany (the Harz Mountains among others), Italy, France and Portugal wouldn’t be bad either. There are still many corners in those countries, where we haven’t been. We’ll see what the future brings …
