The Bodensee

by 8.8.13

The Bodensee is one of my favorite holiday destinations. It is only 90 minutes away from my home. It is perfect for spontaneous vacations. Whenever the weather is good, we'll head over there. This time we made a little round to Uhldingen, Unteruhldingen, Uberlingen, Schloss Salem and the Island Mainau. We did some relaxing and sightseeing. I like the balance between the two. I could never lie at the beach for weeks. Not that much of a tanning person. My oven gets overheated really quick.

We had a wonderful time! Here are some pictures for you to enjoy! If you are ever in Germany during summer, make sure to check out the Bodensee. There are so many beautiful places to visit.

Unteruhldingen. Leaving for the Island Mainau.
Beautiful Island Mainau.

The only shoes that fit me...
Giant flower duckies.

My favorite flowers with a little visitor.
Grass/Mountain Skulptures. Kind of creepy.
Can you see Oliver?
