Kevin's trip to Gemany, October 2018

Last year in October my wife and I took a three week trip through Germany. We started in Munich and worked our way up from Munich to Prague, Dresden, Berlin and Hamburg. After Hamburg we went over to London for a week and then back to Auckland. Germany was wonderful. The weather was perfect, hot, dry with very little wind. While in Munich we took a day trip up to Goppingen on the chance of getting a tour around the Marklin factory. Well after much talking and explaining the time and distance I had to travel, I finally got the tour of a life time. Although they said I could only have 30 minutes I did get to spend nearly and hour walking through the factory guided by Gerlinde and Michael. Gerlinde for interpretation and Michael for his technical knowhow.
