Hey everyone, I'm a 22 yr old New Zealander living in Germany, and my time runs out in June, so since I have a couple of weeks off in April I'm planning on loading up the car and doing a big loop, covering the south of Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Liechtenstein, a lil bit of France and back into Germany. Heres a rough guide of where I want to head to:

Start Frankfurt

Wurtsburg
Bamberg

Nurnberg

Munich x 2 nights

Salzburg,Austria

Fussen/ Scloss Neuschwanstein

Lake Constance

Zurich, Switzerland

Luzern

Bern

Freiberg
Black Forest

Strasbourg, France

Karlsruhe

Back to Frankfurt

So if theres anyone out there who wants to join me if even for only part of the way, or has any info on any of these fine places, please drop me a line.

Cheers
Niki

P.s Dont just exist - live!

Well I can't believe my luck, I've lined up some pretty exciting people to stay with along my travels (thanks to couchsufing) - now is there anyone who wants to join in on the sight seeing, and keep me sane while driving around? I don't bite I promise.

Hey, check out http://www.couchsurfing.com or http://www.hospitalityclub.org

Both are websites dedicated to hooking travellers up with locals who are willing to host them. I have only ever couchsurfed once before and had a great time, but of course this next trip of mine I'm couchsurfing the whole way, except one place in Southern Germany where the town is so small, pretty much no one lives there :)

You're welcome to check out my profile on there http://www.couchsurfing.com/profile.html?id=3FUTIP and if you decide to make a profile, add me as a computer friend - you'll get more success of being hosted if your profiles fuller.

I posted a message similar to my first one here, on one of there forums and a woman in Bern, Switzerland offered me her apartment for a week, in exchange for looking after her cat while shes away. Its stuff like this that really makes me feel better about the world we live in.

Anyway hope that helps.
