Did you pop by the Jagerwirt for a drink?
Ah, the roller coaster. We didn't. We saw a few roller coasters on the mountain sides in Germany and it is definitely something we'll be doing when we're back in August.

^^That's probably no kitty cat but a marder! They tend to eat cables/wires and coolant hoses on cars. They are mostly out in the countryside of Germany. Better check under your hood for any damage.

A little over halfway.....

Disaster.

After being towed from the Grossglockner to the BMW Dealer in Lienz, we've been told the car is ok and just needs a code update!

However, the tow company bent one of the rear trailing arms and BMW can't fix until Friday! I'm in Italy and GF is ~90 miles away in Lienz, Austria. Not sure on plan, but looks like the 1 series going to be towed all the way back to the UK and BMW Assist will provide taxi to our hotel in Italy.

With the 1series out of commission, i carried on albeit with a modified route due to spending nearly 3 hours at the Grossglockner sorting things out.

First up, the Grossglockner
