Day #22 ‘Germany….again we meet’

Today we had the task of finding a caravan park somewhere in the Lindau area around Lake Constance. Last time we were here (back in April) we stayed on the opposite side of this massive lake in Constance itself (Konstanz).
After about 1 ½ hours from when we left the rest stop we found ‘Gohren am Bodensee’ – almost directly across from Konstanz. It’s a massive caravan park that backs directly onto the lake and has heaps for the kids to do; petting zoo; trampolines; playground; mini golf; and, of course, swimming and water sports in the lake. There’s even a little doggy bath for dogs so Stormy got to have a nice refreshing bath/shower…ahhh, lucky girl! Best of all: it’s only €29 per night.
Went to LIDL (like aldi) for some food supplies this afternoon. We were reminded that last time we were in Germany we had trouble using VISA cards. It seems that here, in Germany, many shops do not allow the use of VISA cards in their machines. It’s cash or Maestro only. A big pain in the back side. Luckily, we had enough cash on us to pay for our goods. So, beware: if travelling to Germany make sure you get cash from a machine or use a Maestro card – VISA and Mastercard are not used as widely here.
