A stop at a local McDonald's and we are surfing the web for E$4.95 (24hrs access) to find hotel rooms for the night. Our best choice is about 25km away and with the E$2 special of a Coke and a Caramel Sundae already enjoyed, we set off south on A33.
Leaving A33 we are pointed in the direction of Hitler but our final destination is in Bad Laer. Of course, we are curious about the historical connection to the area we will be hanging out in for the next twelve hours or so.
From our first floor patio we enjoy the silence of a wide open night scenery as we count a few stars in the moon lit skies.
Our reservation was made for Haus Monter Meyer which is located a few kilometers down the street.
On checking in the previous night, between us speaking no German besides “brats” and the wife of the gentleman checking us out speaking little English is where our problem began. However, a phone call to the other property and we are told it has all been taken care of and we are charged the same rate we had previously booked.
At a local grocery store we spend about E$25 and feel like we got a bargain compared to spending E$32 just for lunch the day before.
Back on the road I do something I never do at home or have done nowhere else but in Germany, I put the pedal to the medal and watch my VW Polo accelerate to about 160km/h. I am figuring at this speed about 100mph we will be in Berlin in no time. No time at all.
