In August 2018, our family took a two week driving holiday from our home in The Hague, the Netherlands, to Lake Garda, Italy – via Austria and Germany. You can follow along here.
The original plan was to take our time driving home and spend a few days along the way in Ulm and Heidelberg. However after a week camping, I was really keen to get home and the family agreed. We spent a night in Ulm on Monday 13 August.

We had a relaxed morning at the lodge and then walked for a short distance to the Reuttener Seilbahnen. Our accommodation gave us a 50% discount card for the return journey making it around 30 euros for a family. What a delight at the top to hear the […]
