The most beautiful place I’ve ever been to…

The most beautiful place I’ve ever been to…

11

A couple of days ago I posted a few pictures of my journey from Phuket, though didn’t reveal where I was heading. Well, the answer is to another relaxation destination, namely Berchtesgaden. I’ve been meaning to stay at the InterContinental Berchtesgaden for years, though never had a practical opportunity to do so, until now (due in part to the fact that I’m finally old enough to rent a car).

Berchtesgaden is about a two hour drive from Munich Airport. Not only is the hotel spectacular, but the town and scenery is stunning. It’s truly the most beautiful place I’ve ever been, along with Queenstown, New Zealand.

I’ll save all the details for the trip report, though will simply say this is the most relaxing place I’ve been in a long time. Beaches don’t excite me. I don’t like sand, don’t especially like the sun (I look like a lobster after about an hour of sunlight), and don’t particularly like old people in Speedos. I do, however, like mountains.

Now I’m off to my next destination. Of course in the interest of consistency I won’t reveal it either, though I will say it’s a spectacular hotel redemption, if that’s any sort of a clue.

    Reader, don't get your speedos in a twist. Lucky didn't say he dislikes all old people, only those in speedos. I'm older and couldn't agree more. If I offered to show you a picture of me in a bikini now and 30 years ago, which would you choose?

    Lucky did nothing wrong. He expressed an opinion and you are wrong for so impolitely discouraging it.

    Have you bothered to ask old people what they think of you. The more your personality comes out the more arrogant it appears.

    Hope your business of blogging does well. Remember not to piss off your readers.

    Lucky, ever thought about traveling around Norway? Seems like it might be your kind of place.

    Coins, when you say that you don't like old people in speedos, I understand. I dislike speedos.
    But answer this... when you say old people, how old are you talking about? 35, 45, 58, 75? Careful how you answer cough cough.

    I loved this place also. Its amazing the the IC Berchtesgaden was built in the exact spot of Herman Goering's house. Also fron the indoor pool you can look up and see Hitler's old eagles Nest. I hope you took the electric boats on the Konigsee. I loved the echo.

    Lucky, you live in the wrong state!

    I was just in Munich earlier this week and had been planning to visit Berchtesgaden but the heavy rain deterred me. I went to Salzburg instead which was beautiful too. Driving in Germany is a lot of fun too!

    I know it is a different country but "the hills are alive......."
