The Black Forest of Germany
Video 5 of 24
Video 5 of Brad and Sue's 2014 European Vacation. Before going on this trip, Sue was worried about driving an RV in the mountains. I assured her that mountains have valleys and that the freeways are at the bottom of these valleys on level ground. Apparently driving on the freeways is not the European way of going on holiday. This video takes us on a ride in an RV on the back roads through the Black Forest of Germany.
