Today we tested the train (including a change) and looked further north at the hills. We also found a beautiful little coffee shop with an exquisite vegetarian meal, delicious muffins and brownies and a good coffee.
The outward journey took place in two stages. Since we didn’t trust the Deutsche Bahn, we drove to Frankfurt am Main a day early to stay at the airport hotel there. The next day we went to Osaka via Hong Kong.
