Stayed on the shores of lake Constance for two days enjoying its view and having some great company. The lake is shared by Germany and Switzerland, and we were on the German side.

The colors of the water are pretty cool(changing at times), and we can see snow peak mountains at a distance. The small town Überlingen where we were staying has short hikes around the lake. There were many cyclists, street performers and beach goers along the trail as well. We saw plenty of yachts and boats parked in some parts, so probably will be able to do some boating as well in the lake.
