BMW museum in Munich and St Moritz, Switzerland
The temperature today was 35 degrees, totally unexpected but very welcome after the first days wet weather and yesterdays mix of sun and rain. After a two hour drive to Munich we saw the amazing architecture of the BMW museum which was framed by the olympic stadium, an amazing feat of engineering back in the 70's and still stunning to this day. After looking around the museum at some of their earlier creations we then attended an exhibition of BMW art cars from the last thirty years, these had been used as blank canvases by famous artists and were on display in all their glory for visitors to admire. As we crossed over the road to look around the BMW showroom their was a car shoot going on of the yet to be released Mini Coupe, the German bearded photographer was a bit bemused by me taking photos of the car, rather then getting in to a discussion with him about photographers rights and the fact that people were taking photos with their phones I apologised for disrupting his shoot (!!) and we went for lunch, think he may have had camera envy! Just after 3.30pm it was Al's turn to drive and take in the next four hours of autobahn where 100 mph plus is legal through to Austria and Switzerland where 60 kilometers seems to be the avarage speed, didn't ruin the journey as the scenery is spectular. We arrived in St Moritz at 8pm where our hotel was the Badrutt's Hotel, another spectacular hotel in an amazing location which was at the edge of some stunning roads. Tomorrow we head off on our last leg to Monte Carlo, the last few days have seemed to go by so quickly and the weekend will be a good chance to regroup with everybody and set up some car photography opportunities in Casino square and elsewhere in this world renowned location.
