So today, when I hit the Autobahn alone, I did what I used to, I cranked up the music and belted it out with my favorite artists. Back then probably Indigo Girls, but today it was mostly Tina Dickow and Adele.
"Room With A View"
And just like back when I lived in DC, everyone was leaving Munich for Easter, and I was stuck in many traffic jams, or Stau. At one point, when I was doing my best Adele impression, I noticed that I was entertaining some of my fellow travelers. The drive was supposed to only take about 2.5, but it was closer to 4 by the time I got here.
The last hour of my drive made the first 3 totally worth it. Up and into the Austrian Alps on my way towards my destination, Hohe Tauern, the view was utterly breathtaking. I'm only sad that I was driving, because I couldn't take photos out of the side of the car, though twice I did pull over to take a couple shots.
And, when I walked into the room where I'm staying, and pulled back the curtains, all, I could say was "Thank God for This Beautiful View."
