Where I stayed
An amazing spectacle presented itself in the English gardens the next day where we found surfers in full wet suit gear and Aussie surfboards, surfing a back to front wave created on a canal. It had to be seen to be believed but there is a photo attached to give you an idea.
Another important visit we did from Munich was to Dachu concentration camp. This camp was quite different to Auschwitz in that it was the first created back in the 30's and initially housed political prisoners (those that opposed the Third Reicht). It developed into a work camp then a transfer place for those on their way to death at Auschwitz. These camps are such disturbing and moving places to visit and this time I took no photos. There is a saying that those who do not learn from the past are condemned to repeat it and it is alarming that even while we were in Munich, there was a march by the young neo nazis to celebrate Rudolph Heiss's birthday.
Next Move on to Venice via the Tyrol region of Austria.
