Day 7 - Fussen, Germany

Day 7 - New Years Day!   We packed our bags and left Geneva for Germany. A 6 hour drive through the foothills and small, but quaint villages was an amazing sight.

We arrived in Fussen with enough time to take the team to one hotel in downtown, the parents to another about 4 blocks away, and I am staying along with league officials in a small older bed and breakfast type place.

The team had practice then we went to....yes....another Pizzaria, but with a German flair.

Just a note that tomorrows game against Germering has been moved to 5 pm, which is 10 am Central time, 11 am Eastern, and 8am Pacific. Hopefully we will have internet access for the game.

Another note:  There is no internet access where I am staying. The only access is at the hotel where the parents are staying and it's about a 1/2 mile walk from where I am. It's snowing now and without transportation, I'm not sure if I can keep this blog updated or not....as with everything so far....we'll see.....

Fussen, Germany in the snow.....

It's 12:30 am, time for me to make my trip back to the hotel in about 3 inches of snow......gotta love Europe!
