holiday schnapps

I've been sorting through about 2GB of snaps I took when on holiday
in Bavaria last week. Getting to Munich Airport from Birmingham for
the 6.30am flight meant getting up in the middle of the night, but it
all went very well (with Lufthansa). Getting to our hire car took
about 30 minutes longer than it should have done, thanks to misdirections
from the car hire company.

You'll see from the first few pics that we went with a couple of other
people .... Mrs C's brother S, and his wife, P. Thanks to S speaking
almost fluent German, we were more adventurous (and covered more ground),
than if Mrs C and I had gone on our own.

On our way to our holiday resort in Schliersee, we stopped off at
Ammersee ... the rain stopped temporarily while we had lunch in a
lakeside cafe.

I took all the other photos shown here on a day trip to Munich ... again
it poured down with rain, so we did mainly indoor things ... saw some
paintings (let me know if you can identify who the artists are),
visited the Botanical Gardens, walked through the palace gardens next
door, and later walked through the old part of the city. We took the
train to Munich and back (for about 5 euros / £4 each).
