Liechtenstein is a tiny country (some 60 square miles) bordered by Switzerland in the West and Austria in the East. I picked up a miniscule amount of German while I was stationed in Germany (a decade ago), but they don't speak German in Liechtenstein. They speak a dialect called Alemannic, and I can't understand a word they're saying. Even their numbering system is all messed up. I drove all the main roads in less than an hour. Tiny, but very very rich. Some more pictures from Liechtenstein and Switzerland.

The prince's castle. They actually live in it and it's closed to the public.






Another castle in Balzers, Liechtenstein:


They have these speed limit signs that give you a sad face if you're going too fast. I found them amusing.


The Swiss Army at work...







Here's a video I shot with the GoPro. Riding from Gaflei to Triessen in Liechtenstein. Steep and downhill all the way, but the fish-eye lens flattens everything out.
