Freddie's Travel Diary - Day 17,18,19

More family visits!!!  

I don't know about humans. They are very keen on families. Just imagine if I went visiting all my relatives. But I don't think they make humans in such large production runs.

Freddie's Travel Diary - Day 16

Today we went to the Lorelei Rock. They told me about the maiden combing her golden hair and luring the sailors onto the rapids. Imagine my disappointment when there was just a cliff and a million Japanese tourists. That's people for you.

Freddie's Travel Diary - Day 12,13,14,15

These guys are really restless. Instead of enjoying the nice weather and climbing another mountain they are back in their van eating miles on the motorway.

Freddie's Travel Diary - Day 11

We went to another Alm. Nowadays they feed the tourists here. In the old days it was the summer grazing grounds of the villages cow herds. Well and mountains ....

Freddie's Travel Diary - Day 10

Today we went up a real mountain, the Almkopf, 1802 meters (6000 ft),  approx 500 meters (1670 ft) to actually scale. Here's me next to the summit cross.

Freddie's Travel Diary - Day 9

Weather still not very nice. Made our way into Tyrolia and eventually found the camping grounds in Lermoos. 

Freddie's Travel Diary - Day 8

They seem to be set on setting a milage record. So a day of driving and it's so hot it nearly melted my glue. Just before we reached our overnight parking place or (Wohnmobilstellplatz) we ran into a thunderstorm! They had to stop 'cause the rain was so heavy you couldn't see the road anymore.

Freddie's Travel Diary - Day 7

Today is a boat tour on the Danube and the Danube canal. Very soporific all that slowly passing greenery. Went through large lock and hope the next leg will be more exiting.

Freddie's Travel Diary - Day 6

Did a sightseeing tour and went to a palace, I think it was called something like Nice Fountain or Schönbrunn. Them Royals really lived the high life, that was just the summer palace.

Freddie's Travel Diary - Day 5

Lele traipsed around old town Vienna all morning. Some really nice buildings and a lot of art to see.
