Running along the Bodensee

The last time I was at Lake Constance it was all about teddy bears and dolls, this time it was for running. I had decided to run my first full marathon there. It was great, blue sky, blue lake, lots of people, wonderful atmosphere - just perfect!

My mother collects old toys, mainly teddy bears and dolls, so for her birthday my sister and I took her to a teddy bear hotel at Lake Constance, the Bodensee. While we were there we visited two toy museums, one of the very good, the other a perfect example for a tourist trap.
Of course, we also walked along the lake and enjoyed the scenery, but the main focus was on old toys.
Unfortunately, all my pictures got lost when I was copying them on the computer and I wasn't able to save them.

    Now I learned that Bavaria does have a sea access; a new lesson. The area looks attractive, and compares to so many nice places in Germany. We go to Munich area in May.

    Ah, so you have updated with Lindau :-)) Thanks for all the recommendations, and I realised that the Bären Hotel is only 10 km from Lindau, so maybe I rent a bike inn June. And will have a look for the old church :-)

    Too bad you lost your photos, but I was able to bear with your page, anyway. Excellent bear facts on the bear-tifacts. Your prose bear-ly missed a beat...

    An interesting page, Christine! I saw Bodensee from apart on my way to Freiburg. There is a doll museum in Moscow but I've never been there. May be one day... Thanks for sharing!
