My trip was coming to an end and I was headed to the last stop in my itinerary - Vienna. I took a shuttle again from CK to get to Vienna. The drive from CK to Vienna was even better than the earlier drive from Salzburg to CK. We were mostly driving through countryside roads, and I really can't describe how scenic the drive was. I don't have pictures either; but there are few things which are best left to experience.The first look of Vienna, a city, was quite underwhelming. Honestly, I saw very little of Vienna. I guess I was a bit tired physically and Vienna really paled in comparison to all the natural beauty I had seen in the past few days.The little I saw however is in the pictures below.

First up was Friedrichshafen (Germany), better known for its airport and Zeppelin museum, neither of which we visited. The drive was long (because Isaiah decided against getting a Vignette for Austria and we didn't want to get another ticket for driving on the Austrian autobahn unlawfully) and uneventful, so we were relieved to finally arrive in town and grab something to eat. After walking around the city center, which took us all of a half hour, we stopped for ice cream, because that's apparently what you do in Friedrichshafen if you're not inside the Zeppelin museum. My favorite thing about the town was looking across the vast lake that is the Bodensee and seeing the Swiss Alps! From the Swiss side looking toward the German side you just see flat, so it was nice to see some terrain. Sunday we made ourselves a little feast. I was in charge of the green bean casserole and candied yams and Isaiah made the best chicken and dumplings ever. We finished things off with chocolate eggs. Yum.
