Today i'm writing on the train yet again. It seems like a perfect place to write these days as i refuse to take anytime out in these countries that i am visiting as there's way to much to experience and every moment counts. However, i have a seat and a table to write on this time so thats better. The train is doing about 254km/h now (as the LCD screen says at the front of the cabin) and i can definatly vouch that it is pretty fast as i look outside the window. The country side now is absolutely wonderful, there's all these rolling hills covered in tree's with small towns scattered all throughout. It looks like a very clean place.

Wurzburg has been great, we only got to spend 2 days here as we wanted to be in Munich by a certain time, but its a small town and we got to walk around and see all of it which was good. This town has lifted my thoughts on Germany even more because its so scenic. Unfortunatly in the war it was completely flattened (in 1950's) but the palace's here have been restored to how it previously was. The town is pretty small and completely surounded by rolling green hills. Once we rocked up to our hostel we dropped our bags and headed off for some sight seeing and then later to a pub for tea and some beeers. While we were wondering around it was raining but that didnt stop us from keeping on walking. We were absolutely soaked, but the smile's were still on our face. The streets are cobble stonned and there are scenic scenes at every turn. Its a tidy town with a nice atmosphere. We ended up at some bar with the cheapest food we could find (but was still descent looking). There wasn't much English here, but the barman kindly handed us an English menu with pictures on it :o) The pictures just do it for me, i dont need words after i see that! I ended up with the pasta with bolagnase sauce - mmm... Then hit the beers with danielle. Every town has like their own brew - its very interesting. I'm quite liking the German beer. After this we went back to our room to meet two other Polish pepole in our dorm with us. They were here because the woman had some Orthadontist seminar which she was attending and he came aong for the visit. We got chatting and they were nice and very knowledgable people and got into some descent discussions with them and learnt a few things here and there about the country. They asked about Australia and we asked about Polland and how it coped during the war. They spoke English quite well actually. After hours of chatting we left to go down to the internet to book accomidation for the following night in Munich as we currently had no where to stay. We booked Munich and Prague so we wouldn't have to worry about accomidation for a while. We finally got some sleep and the next morning our new Polish friends had breakfast with us. They cooked us some toast which was nice of them (told you they were nice people) before leaving - not without giving us their email. They offered to meet us in Poland if we happened to go there, and show us around the place! - heh! awesome... We said our goodbye's to them and they headed off. We'll decide a bit later if we're up for polland but sounds like a very kind offer.

We then went off ourselves to see Resedence Palace. It was a huge, beautiful place and had a magical big garden. Too think it was all for one lady is crazy as it was gigantic. I can't help how lonely you'd be in a place this big. However i wouldnt say no.

Well from leaving this place :o( which is sad as its so peacefull and scenic and so far the prettiest place we've been too. This place is also the start of the Romantic Road for anyone interested in doing that - a great start i must add :o)

Goodbye Wurzburg...
