Today was going to be fun!!! We were heading for the Alps and this time on purpose!
As we were leaving the Grand Hotel, Trento the staff thanked us for bringing our eclectic mix of sports cars....felt like a rock star!
Our first task was finding fuel in Italy on a Sunday morning....not easy especially if you need 'super'.
Finally found a petrol station....no super unleaded though
Taking a break!
F Type, M3, RS3 and 370Z
Morning brought the first views of where we were as we'd arrived after dark.....
Still in Bavaria
First sight of the Alps
Run2Mode Sat Nav
Still found traffic jams
For the second day in a row we arrived at our hotel after dark....The Grand Hotel Trento!
This was mainly autobahn for some of us (one group did go via the Black Forrest), this day we joined the 'Vikings' Jacques and Angela and 'Men in Black' Roy and Ed.
Again the weather was fantastic, high 20's plus nice roof down weather as the 3 roadsters were out together it would be rude not to!
On route we stopped at a little place for lunch.....
Jacques in Frankenstein
Lunch Time in Frankenstein!
Found a nice little restaurant with many gargoyles and statues of crows? As it was very hot by this time we elected to dine inside but being as it was Frankenstein there was a wake going on inside so we ate in the garden instead!
Apart from our lunch break today was really just about getting to Bavaria our next overnight stop. Thanks to a series of accidents on the autobahns around Munich we arrived in Kochel am See in the dark.
We were the last to arrive and found that the other teams had found a great place to eat up the road from the hotel. The Kochler Stuben!!!!!!
We also made some new German friend.....
