  • I'm back from Germany

    OK I go away on vacation and everyone runs away to a new CC. I guess I have a lot of catching up to do.

    I just got back yesterday so am still living in German time which is 6 hours in advance of mine here in Toronto.

    3 weeks of wet weather - beautiful country but was it ever cold and wet during this visit. One day we even had very light snow mixed with the rain. The area I went to last time was blanketed with snow so I'm glad we chose a different area this time. Our last 3 days were beautiful weather though.

    I took a bus tour one day and ended up in Austria where I took a gondola up one of the mountains. I jumped into the first available one and figured others would join me but I went up (and up and up and up) all alone - fairly freaky.

    It was snowing on top and there was about 6 inches of snow laying there already. I started laughing when I saw the chairlifts for skiers that go up even higher - I thought I was at the top already and there was more to go (it wasn't running however). An innocent bystander was waylaid to take my picture so that I could prove I was in the snow in May/June.

    I'll post a link to my pictures when I get them set up.

    Glad to be back though. It is somewhat stressful being where few speak the same language. They were all so pleasant.

    Sorry about the wet weather you had to deal with. When I visited Italy, we took a gondola ride, so much fun!

    Looking forward to seeing your pics.

              Welcome back. May & June are always cold & rainy in Germany. I remember always packing my umbrella when I used to go home with my kids and light coats.

                I'm so jealous! I loved Germany. I got to visit Europe in '79, (an eternity ago) but thought it was so incredible to be in Italy in 100 degree heat, drive for a day and be in the Alps knee deep in snow! I wasn't interested in going to Gremany till I got there, then I fell in love with the country. I would so love to go back one day. Cann't wait to see your pics.

                          My flight got in Saturday at 3:00 PM, out through customs with luggage about 4:00 and home by cab by 5:00. I bribed the cabbie to drag my enormous suitcase upstairs so that I wouldn't break my back.

                          This is my third trip to Germany. I started going there 4 years ago with an elderly friend of mine (83 now) and she goes every 2 years. It is difficult for her as she's very hard of hearing so having a hearing companion is a big help for her. Besides, we've basically adopted each other.

                          Each time she says it is her last time but she's already planning on the next trip in 2 years as it is her cousin's 50th anniversary and there will be a big party.

                          I can't wait to see the pictures either but they will never do justice to that beautiful country.

                              Welcome back! You were missed here at the new CK! Where in Germany did you visit? My best friend is in Heidelberg with her DH and kids, stationed there.
                              I would love to visit her in Germany.
                              Please do post links to pics!!
