So this week I have met 3 really nice German ladies all called Melanie and all extremely helpful in one way or another.
Thursday I set off for Kempten and beyond. Finished the day at Camping Wertacher Hof by Gruntensee water in Haslach. A very friendly German lady actually stopped and offered me a lift somewhere between Kempten and Oy dropping me off at the campsite.

So I got to Memmingen on Tuesday but the tourist information office closed an hour before I got there. As I really needed some kind of cycle maps I decided to stay at Camp Am See in Buxheim. I did find my first ever free wifi in Germany and a lovely little café which I posted from at the time.
