Three-nations tour: part 1

That's why I like Europe so much: if you feel like going somewhere you can just jump in your car and start driving and within a few hours you can be in places that are completely different: where they talk differently, where they look differently, and where they are different! In a weekend in 2007 I felt like going somewhere and I decided to go on a three-nations trip that would cost me four days. Three countries that I actually visited, but in reality I visited no less then seven countries in four days: that's really only possible in Europe! :)
My trip started with a visit to the nice, picturesque town of Tübingen, where I had one of my first Couchsurfing experiences sleeping in a student flat. After this short visit I continued through the great landscapes of southern Germany towards the extreme south where you can find the fairytale castle of Neuschwanstein, listed as one of the candidates to become one of the Seven Wonders of the World. It's great to see how beautifully this castle is situated against the northern slopes of the Alps.
And to end my visit to Germany I did what was absolutely necessary: eating a good, fat Bratwurst! Time to continue to the next stop! First was driving through Austria for a few minutes, then through Switzerland for a few minutes, to be ending up in the mini-principality Liechtenstein!
