After picking up my car in Munich I headed straight to perhaps my favorite region in Germany, the Allgäu. Where rolling, cow filled pastureland meets the vertical wall of the Alpine foothills, the Allgäu is a magical place. Combined with a late October Indian Summer, the region was bursting at the seams with tourists looking to escape the fog that cloaked the rest of Bavaria. Though despite the fullness of the parking lot as I arrived at noon, I did find myself a peaceful night as the only guest at the Ostlerhütte on Breitenberg one night. Actually felt a bit awkward really, but I managed, helped by some good food filling my stomach and amazing views right out the door.
