Lindau on Lake Constance

As we get closer to the apartment where we'll be staying, I always have a feeling of excitement with a tinge of anxiety - will the house be like it was described when we agreed to the home exchange...will there be a house there at all? But after several years of doing home exchanges, we've never been disappointed, and our apartment in Lindau is no exception. After our flight from the USA into Munich, we rented a car and drove to Lindau, arriving about noon. Our home exchange partners had left a lovely lunch ready for us! After lunch and a short nap to recharge, we unpacked and headed to the nearby grocery for provisions.

We had been to Germany before, but not to this region, so when the home exchange inquiry came we decided it would be a good area to visit. Lake Constance is in the corner of Germany where it borders Austria and Switzerland, so it would be easy to do day trips in all three countries, plus nearby Liechtenstein.

To combat jet lag we always try to get outdoors and do some walking on our first day. So since the apartment was only three blocks from Lindenhof park along the lake, we went for a walk to explore the neighborhood and lake. After checking out the restaurant at the Bad Schaschen Hotel on the lake, we decided to have a relaxing dinner there with a beautiful view of the lake, then walked home and fell into bed.
