Another day, another wander, and another desperate attempt to hide my fabulous new knee brace, since now I'm not entirely sure that it really will become the next great fashion trend.
Today, our journey took us out to Konigsee, a natural lake in Germany and just around the corner from Salzburg, Austria. Once again, aside from being aware that the lake exists and that it was possible to go on a boat tour of the big lake and out to several other smaller lakes, we did no planning. Just kind of plugged an address into the GPS, headed over, and hopped on a boat.
I always love a good boat ride, and as we were some of the last people on the boat, we kind of got the leftover seats and had a difficult time taking in the sites on our way out across the lake, but nothing could mess with the epically cool point in the tour when the captain stopped the boat and the guide pulled out a trumpet. He played an entire German polka song in the middle of the lake one refrain at a time so we could hear the music echo off the mountains.
If that wasn't amazing enough, when we got off the boat at Salet, there were butterflies everywhere. Never have I ever seen so many different types of butterflies (or, schmetterlings) in one place. Not even in a butterfly conservatory! It was amazing!
