Today I would define as the best day, thus far. I sat on a boat for an hour long trip to Isle Reichenau. Reichenau is a really fun word to pronounce in a German accent. Last weekend, the woman I met told me to go here specifically to visit the church which has well preserved historic paintings due to the fact that they were painted on wet walls. I was surprised to find that this island was predominated by greenhouses and farms of lettuce, pumpkins, squash, etc etc. I could eat up this entire island and feel full for weeks. The absolute highlight was the Salatstube, a salad bar built into a functioning greenhouse. The second highlight was the shokolate hasselnut (chocolate hazelnut) milkshake. Honestly the best milkshake I've ever had. (Maybe it was my state of mind???) By the end of my two hour land excursion, I sat blinded by the sparkling water, slumped against a tree, sleepy and satisfied. The boat ride back home was only but a dream.
