Autobahn

Leaving Denmark and entering Germany
That's one more check off of Zack's bucket list!

Our recent trip to Germany was by car and by boat. We drove to a neighboring city, took a ferry from Norway to Denmark, then made our way south and into Germany.

And driving in Germany means taking the autobahn (German highway). While many sections have speed limits, you do come across quite a few stretches where there is not an official limit, only a suggested speed of 130 kmh (@81 mph). 

It is surprising how quickly a car can sneak up on you from behind - you'd best be using your rear view mirror! Zack found a couple of more open areas without much traffic, and proceeded to see what our little car could do. We saw 160 once, and then resumed our position among the 'lesser automobiles' in the center or right lane. Often we could feel our car shake a bit as a Maserati, Porsche, Ferrari or other high-end vehicle would speed past.

Have you ever driven on the autobahn?

What is something on your bucket list that you hope to accomplish soon?
