You may (or maybe not) have noticed a lack of communication
from me for a while.
Just returned from a three-week trip to Germany, Austria, and Prague.
While most of me is back home in Southern California,
part of me is still hovering somewhere over the Atlantic Ocean.
International travel can be very intense living and I need to be patient with myself
as I make adjustments and get back to normal routines of home.
While I do have some things to share about some of the pretty, sparkly baubles
and beads I found in these travels, more photo editing is needed.
The name of this trip could be Planes, Trains, Automobiles, and Bikes,
as we made good use of all these modes of transportation.
I’m most proud of the fact that I finished two 12 mile bike rides
with my bum in pretty good shape…
one along the beautiful vineyards and small towns of the Danube.
And the other along the gorgeous Mosel River.
Glenn was in hot pursuit of the best pastries and beer,
while I enjoyed the many great Rieslings and tasty brots.
Leaving Vienna. Next stop Prague.
Pretty cool how I matched my jacket to our train, huh?
One of many great meals. Mind boggling how many ways they can prepare PORK.
Top of the Reichstag in Berlin. Loved Berlin!
View from our room in Cochem on the Mosel.
I emailed our kids this photo and told them that we’d just bought a house in Germany
and to sell our cars, home and all our belongings and forward our mail, the cash, and the dog.
Despite what this photo implies, I did actually ride this bike !
