The Europe and UK Leg of the Everlasting Tour Begins
20 hours of flying time is quite a lot, but it went by so fast. It might have been the on board entertainment or the 5 hours of sleep that I got, but Australia to Germany has never felt so fast! I love traveling via Abu Dhabi, it is the most direct way, took 13 hrs 50 mins and then another 6hrs 30 mins to Munich.
Some great things have already happened and we've only been here a day, we got the best deal on car rental, probably one of the cheapest we've been able to find out of all the international touring we've done. I also love it how pretty much every German car is an awesome one, they very nicely decided to give us an Audi A3 which thankfully takes Diesel fuel, which is the cheapest fuel option in Europe coming in at about 1.16 euros per litre. We'll be racking up the kilometres on this trip, so we're really thankful to God for providing us with this awesome deal!
So anyways enough about car talk, as I could go on, when we hit the autobahn at 9am local time we drove to our first night of accommodation which wasn't able to check us in until 3PM. So we took the liberty of having 6 hours or so to go and explore Augsburg, which just so happens to be a well known place for Martin Luther and the reformation. I had no idea about this, as we didn't have time to research tourism stuff much before leaving, so while we struggled against extreme tiredness and jet lag, we checked out some amazing sights in Augsburg.
Here's a photo album of some of the stuff we experienced yesterday.
Anyways, this is all I have time to write about at the moment, we drive off to Switzerland today to have our first concert this weekend at the JAWE youth conference, keep checking this blog as we aim to update you on our tour along the way.
Much of God's blessings,
