Leaving Dillingen…Feeling on top of the world


Spotted this monument on the way out of Dillingen


Spotted some a plane taking off from a local air-strip – curiousosity got the better of us


So we headed straight for the air traffic control tower

Check out the vids -

After another slack day (kilometers wise), we didn’t feel too bad to be honest. It was an oppurtunity that we just couldnt turn down. So with a great flying experience, a BBQ, we headed to our free campsite, compliments of Manfred and his partner. Thanks guys.


Manfred offers us free camping for the night
