Austria, Germany, Liechtenstein & Switzerland

The team started the day in Linz, Austria, and had three more countries to cover before days end: Germany, Liechtenstein, and Switzerland After a brief morning spent touring Linz, and sampling the traditional dessert, it was time to fuel up and get back on the road to cross the border into Germany (with a quick stop in a cornfield to take some drone shots on the way).

 

Our team spent most of their afternoon in Munich driving around the city, and even got to watch some locals surfing on the river! But then it was back in the cars for another fuel stop. As the weather turned for the worst, grey skies accompanied the team for the rest of the day, crossing two more borders, from Munich, Germany, to Vaduz, Liechtenstein, and on to Zürich, Switzerland.
