Day 21 - Farewell, Germany (2011)

Our last day in Germany, and in Europe. We still had to travel back to Frankfurt though for our flight back to Singapore. The others left early while we (me, hubby and the kids) left a few hours later. We thought of visiting the castle around 40mins drive away, but decided not to. We didn't want to drive to the airport in a rush.

We packed our bags, settled the kids in the car, took a last look at the castle nearby (probably the last one we will see on this trip), and ventured north to Frankfurt. We passed by the autobahn again, and the speed demon in us wanted to test how fast we could go this time.

we've gone from 135... to 140...
then 150, and we thought that was it. We were running at 150 and cars still overtook us!
Final stretch and hubby put the pedal to the metal one last time. Then we were running at 175! Still we weren't the fastest on the lane. We were having adrenalin rush. But we weren't that crazy. We got to almost 180 and that was really it. We could say we were speed demons at the autobahn. It was quite an experience. And we're glad we exited the autobahn in one piece.

After having traveled about 5340kms and covered 6 countries in 21 days, we really did have a vacation of a lifetime. 

 the first half of our Europe adventure (day 1 to day 10)
- from Frankfurt to Gelnhausen, Legoland, Heidelberg, Cologne, 
Luxembourg, Brussels, Amsterdam, Brugges then Paris....

second half of our Europe adventure (day 11 to day 21)
- from Paris to Versailles, Disney Paris, Thonon-les-Bains in France, to Montreux, Geneva, Lausanne, Bern, Thun, Interlaken, Luzern, Zurich in Switzerland, 
then back to Germany in the Black Forest region.

Thanks to our very accommodating hosts (Tito Peter and Tita Ingrid, Ate and Volker) who made our stay really enjoyable and memorable. We will definitely miss them, and the places we have visited. They are all worth another visit (specially Switzerland).
