It's not difficult without Internet.

As a matter of interest how long did it take you to cycle the Romantic Road?

There is not a lot of pleasure in cycling up 25% slopes or did you just stick
to the valley floor? I am almost sure I splashed you with muddy water as I sped
from one car park to the next :-)

I hope you weren't one of the pillocks on mountain bikes ruining the footpaths
in the forests.

You might have two problems: ask for a car with an automatic gear-box. In
Europe the standard is "clutch and five gears".

Second problem: there is no speed limit on German motorways. Some Americans
were scared shitless (sorry) when they were overtaken by cars speeding at
200 km/h. (130 mph)

OTOH: without a car you might miss places like Rothenburg or Dinkelsb�hl.

Most Germans should speak some English, except in former Eastern Germany
(they learned Russian instead).

Well I only know from my experience in France. In buying a ticket at the
station with a ticket machine that refused to cooperate and a long queue for
the ticket desk and an agent who didn't understand "Monaco!". But perhaps
it's just that Nice Ville was crap.

No, driving, as in, in a car. And not a 4x4 either, I mean, on the roads,
are we clear? )

I must be the only person in the world to have gone to the Lake District at
least once a year for my entire life and never gone on a 'walk'

I would have to get the train to Carlisle first, then get another train to
Kendal, then get the train to Windermere, and the same in reverse. All in
all takes approx twice the time that driving would, and is much less fun.
Besides, I don't want to go to bloody Windermere! <g>

What's "shes" and "cant"?

Are you too stupid to see what happened?
