Drove about 6hrs the other day and ended up in a small town near Munich called Dinkelsbuhl.
Dinkelsbuhl is on the famous Romantic Road, and is a picture postcard historic town, restored like a Disneyland theme park.
Even at this time of the yesr, it’s notoriously difficult to find a parking spot in these towns, especially when you arrive late in the afternoon as I did.
My GPS – yes, GPS – led me straight to the hotel in the main street, and surprisingly in a town jammed packed without a free parking spot anywhere, there was an empty parking space virtually right outside the entrance to the hotel – about fifty meters down, outside some shops.
“They kept it free for you,” my wife said.
I didmt know what she meant.
She pointed out her side of the car window, to the shop I’d parked out front of.
It was a clothing store – and on the glass panelling of the front door to the shop was a sign. It said PILGRIM. It must be a clothing or footwear brand.
But they kept the space free for me…
