It rained all day Sunday, putting a damper on the Blumenfest in Rothenbach. So we bid auf wiedersehen to the Schmieder family and set off for Penzberg, just south of Munich, for a visit with Helga’s friend Salvia.
I made good time most of the way to Munich, keeping it under 170 kph given the conditions, when suddenly about 40 or 50 kilometers from Munich the autobahn turned into a parking lot. It took about two hours to go ten kilometers, so we got off at the next exit. Owing to good signage, we made it to and through Munich, and arrived at Penzberg in time for an unexpected supper.
Salvia found us a nice hotel nearby. When we awoke the next morning it was still raining, so we decided to skip th Ubergurgl ad heat straight for Val Gardena via the Brenner Pass.
As you can see, things are looking up: It stopped raining.
