So, this happens all the time….you’re sitting there having a very nice conversation when somebody interjects “I will be vacationing in Liechtenstein this year!” Okay…..that was a boldface lie. In all reality, unless you’re a fairly well-schooled geography student from Europe or really like to ski, you may not have spent much time thinking about the sixth smallest and one of two doubly...

Lichtenstein
Did you also know that you can make Lichtenstein your 'own' country for a large sum of money. They will rename all the streets to whatever you want for a day, or so I have heard. I have started saving :). And can't believe you had wild garlic soup, it has such a kick!

Lichtenstein
No we had no idea we could own the country and change all the street names. That is wild but we love this little country the way it is. We were enchanted by it. The soup was simply amazing.

Scenic Thoughts...
I had to stop half way through your blog to picture myself driving through the beautiful mountain roads in my shiny red Maserati. I stopped at my castle in the clouds and was brought my special wild garlic soup that I always have when I'm there....OK, that was fun. What a nice place that I have never thought to visit. Looks like another place to put on the wish list! Until we get our chance thanks for taking us along!

Scenic thoughts
Small but mighty. Yes the drive would have been nicer in our Maserati but that is life. I'd go back just to have the garlic soup again. Thank you for your comments.

Complain???
They gave you a Fiesta instead of a Maserati, I am not a violent man but I think someones head should roll. I would save up your money so you can rule the place for a day and throw that guy in a dungeon. The scenery looks incredible, will have to put Lichtenstein on my list.

Complain
Well we were supposed to get a Ford Focus not a Maserati -- but they down graded us to a Fiesta. We tried to convince them we needed the Maserati for all the errors but no go. Lichtenstein is a lovely country. Beauty abounds.

Vacationing in Lichtenstein
Oddly enough, I have had the 'I will be vacationing in Lichtenstein" conversation several times. One of my coworkers has a daughter who lives there, so we talk about her vacations in the tiny country a few times a year. Thank you for the blog - Until now, I had not seen any photos from there. It looks like an amazing place.

Vacationing in Lichtenstein
Ok...your conversation is unique and we say you should go. A tiny country surrounded by mountains, good people and good food. It is fun going to 3 countries in one day. Thank you for your comment.

I just want to know how you manage to always keep your hair looking great with all this travel?

Hair
You crack me up! I've been thinking I needed a trim really bad but I want to wait until we are back in Florida. My hair has been flying away.

Air
I can smell the mountain air from here!

Air
Yes, I'll bet you can. The fresh, crisp air is noticeable. Thanks for the comment.

Vaduz Castle

The capital of Liechtenstein is Vaduz
When I was a kid I'd play Capitals of the World with my dad. Whenever he'd say "Liechtenstein" he would always smile when I said "Vaduz". I think I was the only one at school who knew that one. Liechtenstein's claim to fame was it was the second largest exporter of false teeth after USA.

Vaduz Castle

The capital Liechtenstein
What a great game and not surprised you were a star. Just realized we spelled Liechtenstein incorrectly and have gone back to change it. I guess that is what happens when you work on blogs late at night after a full day of exploring. No worries...it is fixed now. Always good to know at least one useless fact about a country and the false teeth issue fills the bill. Thanks for following along and commenting.

In the Groove
Looks like ya'll are back in the travel mode where things are adventurous, enjoyable and delicious! Love the scenery and so glad Dave is now lager free!

In the groove
We are having a grand time. So much to see and do. Dave is happy to be able to experience a variety of brews from Europe. He is happy.

Great car stories
Loved Dave going rogue (sometimes the best part of a trip) and climbing up that mountain. So amazing that had you summitted it and descended, you would have been in Germany. And then being prepared travelers and having your GPS ready, only to find your destination 4 miles away. Europe always trips me out--how close countries are. You'll certainly be the stars in next year's TB Where Have We Been This Year--certainly the only ones to have gone to Liechtenstein.

Great car stories
I always love it when Dave goes rogue....always an adventure. We enjoyed visiting Germany, Austria and Switzerland from this area....just be careful not to go into Austria without the sticker on your car as it is costly. It is fun entering so many countries in one day....heck it only took an hour or two. Thanks for commenting.

VADUZ REVISITED
Many thanks for your beautiful description of this lovely region. It brought back memories of a great trip we had years ago, visiting Liechtenstein with our two daughters and motoring around the whole area. Your descriptions are marvelous! Have more fun. Aunt Phyl

The Liechtenstein-Uzbekistan Conundrum
Great blogs from you guys again, and I love the doubly landlocked reference! I have had great pleasure reading as I sit with my chai latte in Denver Airport. Keep 'em coming!

The Liechtenstein-Uzebkistan Conundrum
We are pleased that you enjoyed our land locked reference. Thanks for continuing to follow and comment. Ah, a chai latte in the mile high city sounds grand. Are you heading back to Canada? Hopefully, our paths will cross soon. Love to hear more about your life in Canada and Antarctic experiences.

Liechtenstein
I visited Liechtensten myself for two days or so many years ago. Long before TB even existed so i haven't written any blog on that. This picture captures exactly the image I have of it. Thanks for writing this blog entry that brought back memories. /Ake

Glad we've been able to feed you a memory or two. We were pleasantly surprised by our time there. Thanks for sending a message.

Frog crossing
We have those signs in UK in some places ... It is usually a place where frogs cross from pond to pond especially mating seasons etc

Frog crossing
Thank you for letting me know. We were puzzled by the signs. It never occurred to me that a frog would travel that kind of distance. The things we do for mating. Smile.
