Arrived late in Munich from Croatia at sunset . . . Avis computers down . . . no maps . . . brand new car . . . gear shift for Edmundo to master . . . we head south but somehow find ourselves west!
My iPhone GPS to the rescue, but we have to re-trace our steps on narrow “regional” roads where directions signs are small and not luminescent . . . I still have my “reading” glasses only and am no help at all . . . very dark night.
. . . eventually we arrive at our chalet hotel . . . with castle floodlit on the mountain outside our windows. . . . dining room closed at 9pm and it is now past 10pm . . . but we negotiate ham and cheese with a glass of wine . . . bed beckons . . . tomorrow is another day!
