There is a fantastic camping store on the outskirts of Munich called The Gluck where Des and I had a shopping spree. Included in our purchases were a fold away push-bike and a mini scooter named Charly. I had been looking for a couple of bikes for us since we left home and we finally settled on these two.
We've had no end of difficulty finding gas refills. Every country has different bottles and different fittings and we've been unable to get a refill of another country's gas bottle. So far we've bought 3 different types of gas bottles. The one we've just purchased at Gluck won't fit into our camper, so we have to cut out a shelf and make some other adjustments to accommodate it in the camper
At the site of the Gluck store, a beautiful, jolly German woman made us a fresh lunch of salad and of course German sausage. This was not a take away in a sealed plastic pack. It was lovingly prepared, hand dressed and the sausages cooked in a fry pan on the stove while we had a drink. China plates and real cutlery accompanied the meal and a bright smile from de frauwlein.
We've just about run out of Ozzie souvenirs, (and we brought heaps), just as well Harmony has sent some on to Sue in Switzerland for us. It was funny when we arrived in the camp ground in Oberammergau Germany, a little boy of about 4 followed us into the campground on his tiny bike and watched us put the camper up. His older brother had been hovering, so I gave the little fellow a little koala and one for his brother. They both shot off and quickly brought back their baby sister, full of smiles in anticipation. All 3 wasted no time in making themselves at home inside the camper and later 'assisting' Des and Lou put the new mini scooter, Charly together. They were all very cute and after about an hour their dad came looking for them.
We chose to book into a campsite again because we couldn't wait to unpack and charge up the mini scooter. Lou and Des had a great night's entertainment putting the two vehicles together.
It was the site of all sites. We had Alps on either side of us and beautiful homes and buildings all around. Such a pretty setting we've never seen in a camping ground. It was also relatively new so all the amenities were of typical German quality. There was a bread order list which we wasted no time putting our name on for various Bavarian delicacies. Yum, the pastries!
