Our weekend break!

At times, it's nice just to pack your bags and leave the house impromptu. While we had been toying with the idea of doing this, we were still unsure about it. Even after we left, all the while I was thinking whether it was the right thing to do(cause I ended up returning to the house 3 times having forgotten this and that..:D)
(Bright yellow rapeseed fields in the countryside)

Though we had decided what we would see(The Wartburg Castle and the Baumkronepfad), the road trip was like heading out to the unknown. This uncertainty felt good!!!
We were treated to bright yellow colored fields all the way long cause we chose to take the country roads and not the highways. Country roads are the most beautiful to view the changing landscapes though the drives tend to be long as you have to drive within speed limits. You pass through villages with old church steeples, tall towers which stand out, beautiful houses with lovely spring gardens.

The countryside too amazed us with the countless rapeseed fields looking golden from a distance. To add to the charm were the blue skies and clouds looking like cotton.
(Darling hubby was kind enough to pull over at the side so that I could take better pics)

We pulled up here by this place for lunch at the village Georgenthal just because it looked so very inviting. We had the best flammkuchen and Eis, all the while enjoying the sunshine and looking at this beautiful building facing the terrace.

After the hearty lunch and beautiful drive we arrived at our last minute booked Gasthaus. The family that owned this place did cause our hearts to flutter for a brief period as they were not aware of our booking...:D Lesson learnt: Call up the place before hand to let them know you are coming...:-) Anyway, we were given a cosy room which provided us the much needed rest that night.

Do you go on unplanned trips? Have you had good or bad experiences?
