Europe 2019 trip..
08/18/19 at 03:20:48
 
Two years in the making, planning and setting aside $ to take my Wife, Two sons, youngest son's girlfriend and my Mom (lives in TX). Six of us total.

Agenda was:

Rent a VW Diesel passenger van at the Munich Germany airport, drive:
3 days in Munich, Germany
4 days in Austria (Salzburg area)

Return the Van at the Salzburg, AU train station, take a 4 hour train trip to Zurich, Switzerland.

3 days in Switzerland

Uber to the Airport, catch ALITALIA airlines to Rome, Italy.

5 days in Rome

What did we do?

For the first two days in Germany, we did a WW2 tour of the Dachau concentration camp, then into Berchesgaden to see the Eagles Nest, Hitlers Home below the Eagles nest (he didn't live at the top of the mountain, despite most stories), all the various bunkers and hidden WW2 sites that still exist. In Austria, we spent time in Salzburg and surrounding small farming communities. We hit the Alps.

In Switzerland, we learned that that tiny country costs almost double as Germany and Austria, but our time was spent in/around Zurich, up the mountain via tram and took a steam powered paddle ship around Lake Zurich.

In Italy, we spent time bouncing between ancient Rome and a 2 hour train trip south to the coastal town of Naples.

Photos later..

Dang!  That had to be expensive but it sounds like a phenomenal adventure! I traveled as far as West Virginia once as a kid.  It was way too green for me.    Undecided

Massive coal storage facility that was used to supply the Eagles Nest. Still mostly intact.

Those were just a small sampling from the Eagles Nest area and the secret tunnels we managed to get access to. We also found Joseph Goebbels loot train and where he hid all the stolen paintings, etc. Hidden in plain sight!

Next up was the Auswitz death / concentration camp. I'll post photos from this place of evil next..
