May 2nd: Salzbergwerk. 92 degrees. The hottest May 2nd in 100 years.
May 4: Linderhof. The weather cooperated nicely.
May 5: Salzburg. The weather was at times terrible. It was Ascension day and a holiday in Salzburg. Today was proof that a nice time can be had even in the rain.
May 6: Berchtesgaden. In the morning we saw Hitler's bunker. In the afternoon we worked the salt mines. Vacation is tough work!
Royal Castles May 7.: We dodged the rain. We were very lucky. This is the "Ice Saints" time of May in Bavaria. It is ALWAYS cold.
May 11: On the road to Neuschwanstein. Erol is the BEST driver ever. I am the WORST photographer. What happened to our picture at Linderhof?
May 12: Salzburg. Beautiful weather in Austria !
April 14: Linderhof. It rained "cats and dogs" by the end of the day. But we were a tough group.
May 17: Lake St Wolfgang. From here we hit three traffic jams. Constantine avoided the Autobahn by driving back to Munich on roads only tractors and haybalers have seen
May 18: Entrance to Neuschwanstein. I am so sorry that we had the WORST weather ever. But it is easy to have a good time when the sun shines. This wonderful group made the most of it despite the rain. I couldn't take a good group picture because it was too wet to assemble.
May 19: Linderhof Castle. What a difference a day makes. Beautiful sunshine but a bit nippy. There is still snow in the foothills that is usually gone by May. What a terrific group!
May 20: Berchtesgaden. Later the bus broke down at Chiemsee. But luckily the weather was nice while we waited for another bus to come from Munich to pick us up.
May 21: Castle Linderhof. Beautiful warm weather and the first group to make the maiden voyage in Jonas' new bus.
May 22: Linderhof Castle. There was a threat of rain all day. But positive "vibes" kept the showers away.
May 24: Royal Castles. The skies cleared and the sun graced us. This was a good day!
May 25: Linderhof Castle. The first day of a beutiful 10 day weather forecast. The sky was filled with paragliders in Neuschwanstein.
May 26: Lake St. Wolfgang, Austria. The weather and the alpine lakes at their best. And I helped lift and move an Audi in the bus parking lot so we could exit to come back to München.
May 27: Eagles Nest. Finally the Kehrsteinhaus is open. 45 of us enjoyed a day of sunshine. There is still snow around the Nest. The picture on the right shows Salzburg in the distance.
May 29: Sunny Linderhof. We loaded the bus and took off early from Munich. We avoided the crowds the whole day. My month of May ends with a TERRIFIC group of guests.

Thank you for spending the day with me. I hope it was a good day for you.
The month of May in Bavaria saw record highs in temperature, rain and snow. If we were dry on our tour, we should consider ourselves lucky.
Look for my new CD Spring of 2006
