Thumbs up Lovely place to visit in the Summers. But then getting there is exciting enough.

Hi Sam Bhai,

It's nostalgic to dream abt my 3 day bavarian company-sponsored holiday ( 22nd Oct'99 ).

Since your in Garmisch and have the dream M3 for yourself for a day....some places of interest whilst continue to drive through some veryyy breath-taking bavarian valleys are listed below. ( these are from my old dairy and sincerely hope they help in planing your trip. )

1. Oberammergau - Lovely Valley / Village to see
2. Castle of Linderhof - Impressive stuff
3. Visit Zugspitze - The tallest peak in Germany. - Mind-Blowinggg drive ( if that is possible until about 1/3rd the highest altitude thru winding bends that can be easily conquered on the M3 )
4. The Munich - Garmisch highway is abt 100+ kms and if u plan to ripping the M3 this is to&fro journey should'nt last too long.

In all, i wish you well and hope you have a gr8 time.

Trust this helps.

Do njoy th lager & Cheers,cheers:

My pleasure, Sam Bhai.

Am sure this visit might well be the start of your passion for photogrpahy especially in places like this. Please do take some reserve camera batteries & plan for some additional time whilst your out in the open.

It shall certainly be worth it.

Cheers

I am accessible by email. My team-BHP mail will work. I have meetings on most days. Let us set up something by email (not PM).

My first name @ team-bhp.com.

Are you in Munich, have you been hanging out at the Englischergarten? There are some beautiful naked people there all day long. Wait, let's take this to email, lol.

Hi Sam Kapasi,
I live in Nuremberg which is around 170kms from Munich. Let me know if you need some help. Do you want to learn the German traffic signals.
Then check the following link
Getting Around Germany -- German traffic signs and signals (Page 1 of 2)

Oh! Well this is the real good spirit of Team-BHP. Now, Sam has friends here ready to help him with all what he need in Germany. Amazing!

Enjoy the journey, Sam!

I don't have much of a demanding request other than ask for some good pictures. You know what we all like most after the wheeled types. LOL!

Default YetiBlog® - 11th February 2008

I' on my way home from the office. Just a few errands to run and then I'll be home.
Packing will be easy, it has become second nature to me.

As usual, the flight will be at an unearthly hour. 4am. Given the fact that I need to be there 2 hours earlier, this is going to be a night with no sleep.
Tomorrow evening will be the event at BMW Welt. Some presentations followed by a cocktail party that will wind up into some fun.
It's a formal event. Black suit. This is putting me off. I've decided that I will NOT wear a tie. A sign of protest from an aging hippy, lol.

Munich is bright and sunny and 3 degrees as I write this. My kind of weather. I will be busy with meetings and trainings on the 13th and 14th. 15th is the special day. The day I drive this car that everyone is making a fuss about.

I've asked 2 colleagues to join us for the drive. How they will sit on the rear seat is another story.

Bye boys, see you next week!!
