Yesterday 29th July. Friday. We left Fussen earlyish and headed up into the hills. And magnificent hills / mountains they are too. With the most amazing lakes and rivers flowing through them. This is Lake Plansee not too far from Fussen. We stopped for breakfast and could have stayed all day.
Brewed up a coffee, ate 2 fruits, yoghurt and muesli, and counted the endless procession of bikes going past. This was a very special thing for both of us. We felt we were doing what the dream had been. And it just got better.
Not that another of Mad Ludwig’s Castles was high on the agenda but it just so happened to be on the route. This is Linderhof Palace and believe me it’s out in the middle of nowhere. It must have been something to access this area back in the day. And all so he could have private recitals by Wagner. Gotta be keen, and more that slightly crazy, but you have to hand it to the guy he was was real artist when it came to castle design. Impeccable in every detail. Magnificent. We didn’t go inside.
So on we rode following some wonderful waterways through ever steepening hills. The pictures in no way give credit to the scenery and ‘if only we could stop and get that one’. If you want to do the photo thing through these areas you need to be riding a pushbike and not a heavily laden MotoGuzzi Stelvio. We missed far more than we took and even then the light was always in the wrong place.
Stopped for lunch on rolls, ham, cheese and those little stuffed pepper things, sat down and watched this unfold in front of us. From WAY UP on the crag in the first pic.
Onto our digs for the night at Kirchberg in Tirol.
215klms for the day and loved every minute of it.
