My first visit to mainland Europe (2)

Not that I am sentimental (!) but I have two items which I purchased in Oberstdorf some 40 years ago. They are a cross with the “Chi-Rho” symbol; and an ash tray which has within it an “edelweiss”.

From our base in Oberstdorf we took two trips. The first was across the Bodensee (Lake Constance) into Switzerland and Austria.

The second took us to Oberammergau and to (mad) King Ludwig of Bavaria’s fairytale castle at Linderhof.

40 years on ..... I am grateful for these memories. I will always have a soft spot for Oberstdorf.
