The autobahn

Once we were back on the autobahn it was again like being in a real live video game with lots more high speed traffic zipping in and out, crossing lanes to find the clearest, way forward; there is no room for error and large trucks don’t make things easy either! Having said that the traffic certainly knew what it was doing and one cannot but be impressed by the skill with which drivers handle their vehicles and the driving conditions.

With Garmin’s help finding Hahn was easy. He certainly took a lot of pressure off in terms of deciding where to go and how to get there.

However, returning the rental wasn’t as straightforward as it should have been! To be fair it wasn’t as difficult as London but not as easy as LA. I had to have three attempts before finding the correct entrance for the company we rented from. In the meantime Lynne kept our luggage company beside the steps to the terminal.

With delivery of the rental behind us we turned our minds to ensuring we didn’t exceed the published baggage limits. After moving things around between our various bags we managed to ensure everything was within the ‘rules’. We had made enough sandwiches for lunch and tea so ate them while waiting for our flight.
