Screaming Down a Bavarian Hillside on a Luge

It’s important to balance a bus tour itinerary with both serious sightseeing and flat-out fun and exhilaration. And in Bavaria, that means a mountain luge ride (Sommerrodelbahn). We give a careful safety talk and, invariably, someone still drags their elbow on the side of the course and takes home a ripped coat or a nice long luge scab with which to ornament their trip journal. This little video clip gives you a peek at why this ride is a favorite with our groups — and why travel reminds me that it’s never too late to have a happy childhood.

If you can’t see the video below, watch it on YouTube.

P.S. I’m on a Best of Europe in 21 Days Tour.
