Run2Europe2013 Day3

No challenges today just a driving tour from Colmar, France to Naurath,Germany.
The route handed over to the teams to sort (day off for the Run2 Team).
During breakfast the maps came out and between Seb and Jaques the route was devised.

First stop on route was for brunch at Munster where Seb had to  translate order for most of us....



 We collected brunch then drove up into the mountains looking for a nice place to stop to eat.
 Convoy forms up again
Taking in the views

After about 40mins we found the spot next to a lake.

Boats not for hire (even on a Bank holiday weekend...French logic!) During our stop we were entained by the Stu and Danny show (video to follow soon), we then got ready to move again. Danny and Stu Everywhere closed for business

It was then head north for the nights hotel....
Fuel Stop Another check of the map


On our way through to Luxembourg for another country to tick

Anyway apart from "God's Wake Up Call" the room was very comfortable and breakfast was great (not that I eat much on these events due to running on adrenaline most of the time) according to the teams.
 Wassi We finished breakfast said morning to Wassi (the BIG dog), then loaded up the cars ready for Day 2 .


Next thing is to form up the convoy and start our adventure through Germany's "Schwartzwald" (Black Forest).




This day was also Seb's birthday so was treated to some German tunnels (see German Tunnel Youtube vid).



Our next destination was the town of Triberg home of Germany's highest waterfall and many "Cuckoo Clocks", …
