Insel Mainau

After a great breakfast at our hotel we started our day taking a taxi to the island of Mainau.
This green island is a huge park with many different flowers, large lawn areas, a palmtree house, a butterfly house, some restaurants and a marvelous view. You can spend there the whole day easily. If you like, you can book a guided tour to learn more about the island but it's also nice to walk arround the island just with the map (you get at the entrance) in your hands. The entrence fee is not cheap but you get a lot for your money. It's too dificult to describe the island so just have a look at the pics below. More information is also availible at mainau.de (but as I see, currently only in German :-( ).

Traveling back home
We left the island again at arround 1 p.m. and drove back to our hotel to pick up our luggage. Thereafter we walked to the port were the Katamaran was leaving for Friedrichshafen to get back to the airport were we landed. The Katamaran ride was same like the day before. At the aiport we passed through security checks (as all other passengers too) and walked out to the plane.
Departure was earlier than planned and so we arrived at our transit airport Graz as well as at our destination Bad Vöslau early.
