made a short journey to the german-swiss border at Konstanz today. The highlight of our trip was a €7.50 trip to Mainau Island, which is just off Konstanz. It’s a Blumeninsel! Full of pretty flowers! and a butterfly house and an orchid garden – usually i don’t see things like that but it was really fantastic that we could go up close to the butterflies! i’ve come to accept the fact that when the weather is good EVERYWHERE nice is totally filled up with people. No different today.
