Vacation 2015 - Day 3, Part 1.

It appears that camping sites in the southern half of  Germany close at 19.00 or 20.00, which took us somewhart by surprise on the evening of day 2.

Consequently, we failed to find a site to spend the night - and as we had already suffered substantial delays due to roadworks (especially around Braunschweig), we decided to drive through the night to reach Oberschwangau near Füssen (in Bavaria) before morning.

Lea is getting ready for the lake!
We arrived at Camping Bannwaldsee ( at 4.00 in the morning on July 3rd, and put the kids to bed in the caravan, while my wife and I tried to get some sleep in the car.

We checked in at 8.00 and got a nice spot (lot #380) to stay.

The kids went for a swim in the lake (the camping has its own beaches along the lake).

As soon as we felt up to it after resting a bit more, we set sails for the first BIG adventure of this our first journey into the continent with the family:

Castles Hohenschwangau and Neuschwanstein!

More about this in the next episode of: Vacation 2015!
