  • being and we got a beautiful Lake to explore  with swans with swans yes with swans all right

  • so we started our cycling tour in Rudolph  and followed the cycling path that hugs the  

  • lake shore this cycling path took  us past Wetlands Farmland in cute  

  • little towns where it seemed like every  home had its own vegetable garden and  

  • then we arrived at our first stop Glaser  obstin gemuse a fruit and vegetable market

  • so we've made it to the first stop of our  foodie biking tour oh man we're getting  

  • spoiled with some great dishes check this out  guys we've got some delectable looking pumpkin

  • locally grown we've been cycling Past Farms  beautiful scenery I mean we've seen some gorgeous  

  • houses too along the way Gardens really nice bike  paths Orchards we've seen lots of apple orchards  

  • and people picking their Apples because it is late  September so definitely if you come to this area  

  • exploring by bike is the way to go for  sure in typical salmon Audrey fashion

  • and said we hadn't turned it on properly so  we were just like cycling using leg power  

  • and that's kind of why we've been falling behind  schedule we're like how are we supposed to make it  

  • from one stop to the next in suchshort amount of time it's not enough well  

  • now that we're going a little faster I think we'll  be able to get back on track and make up the time  

  • we then continued cycling and at this point it  started to rain so we couldn't film very much  

  • but we made it to our next Food stop on the tour  so we have now made it to our second stop on this  

  • biking tour and we are having Tapas and some  apple Shore lift and I just want to show you  

  • what we have here on the plate because there's  a little bit of everything we have a mini onion  

  • tart which is a local specialty then we also have  some lentils we have some red onions that are also  

  • grown specifically in this area we have a radish  salad some grilled cheese some cranberries and  

  • there's also an aioli with some butternut squash  and pumpkin so everything looks delightful we've  

  • been working up an appetite here lots of cycling  lots of working those legs especially because  

  • it took us a while to figure out that that the  electric bike has a turbo setting that like just  

  • lets you fly through the countryside so yeah but  we figured it out too late towards the end of the  

  • tour unfortunately so we've put in a lot of leg  work yeah we sure have yeah was it our most genius  

  • moment it's like we just got on the bike andstarted riding it like a normal one and then wow  

  • yeah so don't make our mistake yeah go straight to  Turbo yeah and another thing I wanted to mention  

  • this apple surely that we're drinking right now  uh the apples are also from the region like we've  

  • been biking past a whole bunch of apple orchards  we've seen people picking the apples because it is  

  • that time of year so this is all local all-natural  and that's one of the nice things about traveling  

  • in this area it is an agricultural area um  so everything you're going to be eating at  

  • the restaurants is going to be fresh seasonal  local and often organic so cheers to good food  

  • our third food stop wasn't very far next we cycled  to hirschen Horn a seven generation family-run  

  • hotel and restaurant I wish we could have had more  time here because the place was amazing but we'll  

  • share what we had to eat there instead we just  finished an amazing meal that was our third stop  

  • on the bike tour tell us what did you order oh  my gosh I had duck I think my first time to have  

  • German duck and it was absolutely delicious it was  served with gravy it had pear with a Chutney and  

  • a beautiful potato dumpling to help soak up all  the gravy honestly that's maybe one of the top  

  • meals I've had on this whole trip just absolutely  loved it I really liked the place too we got to  

  • tour around a little bit yes looks like the kind  of place that you could come and have a very  

  • relaxing holiday spend time by the sauna all kinds  of things it was great as for me I had fish from  

  • the local Lake right here that was also very nice  with some noodles had a salad so yeah excellent  

  • meal and this is definitely a destination for  like a wellness rest and relaxation type of  

  • holiday I wish we had more time here but well  perhaps we'll return some day yes we'd love to  

  • from there we hopped on a bus and then on  a train to Constance our time here was very  

  • limited since we had a ferry to catch later  that afternoon but we managed to see a bit of  

  • the City by taking a guided walking tour we  mainly focus on the ouchdatz or Old Town we  

  • first visited the Holy Trinity Church where  you can see the medieval frescoes that were  

  • uncovered beneath the Baroque plaster this is  also called the augustinian church since it  

  • was built in the late 13th century for the  local Monastery of the augustinian Hermits

  • foreign

  • we also visited Konstanz Constance Moonstar or  Konstanz Constance Cathedral with its mishmash  

  • of Romanesque Gothic Renaissance and Baroque  Styles this Cathedral dates back to the 7th  

  • Century but then it collapsed in the year 1052 so  it had to be rebuilt a process that took 300 years  

  • and then there were Restorations and expansions  which explains the different architectural Styles  

  • and then it was time to get on the ferry and  begin Our Lake Crossing of Lake Constance now  

  • for anyone planning to travel here you'll notice  that locally Lake Constance is called bodensee  

  • so don't let that confuse you the two are the  same place this is the largest lake in Germany  

  • 74 kilometers in length and a Ferry Pass ispopular way to go town hopping around the lake  

  • guys we are on a boat we I should check in I mean  we arrived in Konstanz Constance on the train we  

  • had an hour there so we did a guided tour for  one hour which was really fun but so much to  

  • soak in in only 60 minutes but we got to see some  of the highlights and now we are on a boat we are  

  • going across Lake Constance Bodensee it's going  to be a journey of about three and a half hours  

  • we're getting off at lindau so even though this  is like Transportation I'm kind of thinking of  

  • it as a sightseeing activity because we're onboat in a beautiful Lake surrounded by Germany  

  • Switzerland and Austria hey how cool is that and  we've got some drinks it looks like they look like  

  • beers but they're not it's actually just Apple  shortly and you've got one it's either currant  

  • or Gooseberry let me try yours yours is a bit  more tart oh yeah this is great and we have a  

  • little snack coming and what we'll end up doing  is giving you a full tour of the boat then show  

  • you some of the beautiful scenery we encounter  along the way it is a simple meal I'll show you  

  • it's sausage with a curry sauce so kind of like  a curry worst I guess we can say and we also have  

  • a little bun to dip in the sauce and we're trying  to keep it light because we're having dinner once  

  • we arrive to lindau yeah so this is just likemid-afternoon snack because we were planning to go  

  • to a cafe and have some cake and coffee but there  just wasn't enough time so we eat on the boat now

  • even though it rained for most of the  journey we did get to see some of the  

  • towns that the ferry stopped at to pick up  passengers and there were some beautiful  

  • places out there one recurring theme was  Vineyards Vineyards and more Vineyards  

  • I can only imagine what this place  looks like on a sunny Summer's Day

  • this is a little embarrassing to admit but  we are eating again in my defense it is three  

  • and a half hours on a boat so what else are  we gonna do so we've moved on to the Suites  

  • a cappuccino with whipped cream it looks  so good I'm a little bit concerned about  

  • whether I'm going to be able to sleep  tonight or not with this caffeine in me

  • but we just couldn't resist that and we  got a cake this is like a berry mousse

  • nuts little nuts

  • I love the chocolate nut combination  

  • very tasty very good this is a nice way to pass  the time just eat cake and enjoy the scenery watch  

  • the little towns go by there are so many towns  that I now want to visit along Lake Constance  

  • some of them are just surrounded by Vineyards  like this would be my kind of place cute Charming  

  • historic town with Vineyards in the outskirts  you just drink wine biking and drinking all  

  • day and then falling asleep in the vineyard that  sounds like my idea fun we are going to a veneer  

  • tomorrow so we're getting a taste of him stay  tuned well it's wet hello hey so we're outside  

  • now on the deck we've been traveling for a few  hours and yeah it is raining very windy waters are  

  • a little more choppy now but this is what it looks  like out here you can imagine on a nice sunny day  

  • you would have probably half of the boat would be  out enjoying the the Sun out on the deck it's been  

  • a great ride though it's just makes you realize  how many places there are to visit along Lake  

  • constants like in I think you could do a whole  trip based on visiting the little communities here

  • and then we reached lindau we were staying on  lindau insan which is the island on Lake Constance  

  • and can I just mention what a beautiful Port Entry  this town has you are greeted by a lighthouse in a  

  • monument called The Lion of Bavaria but we'll  show you more of the town later in the video

  • this is the right place no yes okay

  • after disembarking we walked to our hotel  dropped off our luggage and went out for  

  • dinner we ate at a place called algutale  it's a restaurant in car museum so Sam  

  • really enjoyed that as for the meal  the portions were small but the food  

  • was good so if you're looking for an upscale  restaurant experience this fits the bill foreign

  • foreign

  • the following morning we enjoyed  a quiet walk around lindau while  

  • the island was still waking up and then  it was time for a visit to the vineyard  

  • good morning good morning everyone everyone oh  so it is day two yes we are here in Lindell on  

  • the East End of Lake Constance and this morning we  hopped on a bus traveled about 20 minutes to the  

  • mainland arrived at a winery where we are about  to embark on a little self-guided hike and wine  

  • picnic I mean check out the backpack I've got here  yeah this is what they provided they provided us  

  • with picnic yes and wine free time and a beautiful  Scenic place to go on a hike and a map so we don't  

  • get lost what could be a better way to end our  time in Germany than this seriously this is the  

  • ultimate this is like right upper alley we love  food we love wine we like to be out in nature  

  • and we also like to have a you know have a bit of  time to ourselves and a schedule that is is going  

  • to allow us to relax and just go for a really nice  walk yes exactly so this Winery that we're doing  

  • the tour with they've got their little sign there  it's called weingo taug and yeah I'm I'm eager to
