    Default Milan, Verona, Neuschwantstein trip

    I love this city - Milan. My second time and I think I would live here.

    We drove about 8hrs, but travelled about 14 due to stops for lunch and the mountain coaster in the black forest. Little tip? If you live in south or central-west germany, take a date to Lucerne for lunch. Lucerne is incredible. Most are just phone snapshots, sorry.


    Got into Milan about 20:30 - set up my camera to have folks selfie-shoot right in my shot! jerks


    Todtnau, germany @Trigg and @Nukeman will see this place soon.

    I loved Neuschwanstein. Visited the castle with the family while stationed in Germany.

    Looking good buddy!!!

    What vehicle ya got with you for this trip?

    Damn, I just turned 50 and don't even have a passport. I AM very jealous whenever I see your travels, stateside or wherever.
    I have nothing to offer but blood, toil, tears and sweat…You ask, what is our policy? I say it is to wage war by land, sea, and air. War with all our might and with all the strength God has given us, and to wage war against a monstrous tyranny never surpassed in the dark and lamentable catalogue of human crime. That is our policy. You ask, what is our aim? I can answer in one word. It is victory. Victory at all costs - Victory in spite of all terrors - Victory, however long and hard the road may be, for without victory there is no survival.
    Winston Churchill

    I have a rented POS Ford Van/Wagon thing. it's the worst driving dynamics I've experienced in awhile. But seats seven.

    Nuke and i had an amazing time traveling around Germany with Darin. I loved seeing the castles and wondering around the adorable cities and towns. I'm pretty sure I had a permanent grin on my face the entire 5 days. I guarantee we wouldn't have found half of the places he took us if we were left to our own devices.
