We took our “rest day” in Augsburg today (18km round trip from the Campingplatz). The Fuggerei and the Golden Room were the absolute highlights. Spending a relaxing evening at the Campingplatz, and re-doing the unsuccessful laundry from the other night. Oh, the other night, our washing machine died on us so we had to rinse as best we could and then hang stuff to dry. It was not successful.
Having been caught off-guard a couple of times, we've learned to pay good attention to when the national holidays are. European countries take their national holidays very seriously, and when they say things are closed on holidays, they mean THINGS are CLOSED on national holidays. Tomorrow is Corpus Christi, which is a national holiday in Germany, so we've visited the Lidl to grocery up for tomorrow's breakfast, tomorrow's lunch, Friday's morning and Friday's lunch (as a contingency in case we can't find dinner tomorrow).
