We have a major problem with the crashing of the cell phone when Gretchen tried to download updates. She spent time last night trying to chat online with Samsung back in NZ to get a fix to the problem but without any luck.

It has been a very peaceful three days in Geretsried and we were pleased we located ourselves here away from the hustle and bustle of Munich. Now today we have got ourselves around the outside of Munich to the east and then north to Lohberg which is in the Bavarian National Park close to the Czech border. The easiest way was to plan the journey, at least initially; in short stages just to make sure we were always on the outskirts to be far enough out of the city traffic. The day had started cloudy but as we got on the road the sun broke through and it looked promising although we weren’t too concerned if we had some rain as today was all about getting from point A to B with the only sightseeing to ... read more
