Yesterday: Amsterdam-Zürich-Konstanz

We slept late and missed the free breakfast at the hotel. Walked over to Konstanz Hafen and found the Konzil Gaststätten. Along with a terrific Fischmaultäschle for lunch, I had my first taste of Ruppaner, the local beer of Konstanz. (Johann Albrecht is the "newcomer".)

We took a short walk to the Bahnhof to catch the #1 bus to Staat-Autofähre, from which stop it's about a 1 km walk to the Ruppaner-Brauerei. The Biergarten there has a terrific view of the Überlingersee, and the beers were noticeably fresher than at the restaurant earlier. It's a real nice place to relax and enjoy the beer.

Dinner at the Hexen Küche on Bodanstraße, with beers from Dinkelacker-Schwabenbräu. By the time we returned to the hotel, Paris' colleague had recovered somewhat from his flight, and we met him at Shamrock, an Irish pub on Bahnhofstraße. (Shamrock has free Internet access, and in fact that's where I'm posting these notes from.) One round of Guinness, and a couple of Maisel Weissbier. And then it was midnight already.

Tomorrow: Kressbronn-Tettnang
