I do love living out here, where I can watch the forest change season to season.
On another very gray November day, we spent our time wandering all over Berlin. BV hadn’t been to the city since he was a kid, and my old Prague roomie made an excellent tour guide. I don’t think living in the capital is for me, but it’s good to know that with the new(ish) high-speed ICE connection, it’s a fast option for a weekend away.
Apparently we were all over the map in October 2012. Every other year was slim pickins, so maybe I used up all my fall travel juju that year.
The last two weeks have reminded me that I need to see if we can sneak in one more mountain trip this year. We’ve done well, but there can always be one more… right?
I think I could visit the Blaueishütte every year for the rest of my life, and I would never get tired of this view.
Though most people visit for the very lovely lake, it turns out that all you have to do is turn around for a very different (and still lovely) view. I also can’t believe that this was seven years ago… ahhh, young BV and Heather on their first trip away together. So young. Less bearded (mostly him).
The last gasp (we hear) of summer meant that our friendly local Herbstmarkt was even more packed today than it was last year. I didn’t even make it to the garden, as I was distracted by my futile search for Federweisser. The season is short, gotta find some while I can.
I post a lot of pretty stuff, so consider this to be balance. Tell me how you really feel, London.
Though it meant a bit more detouring than usual, I do miss these shiny Madonnas that briefly adorned the square in front of the Germanisches Nationalmuseum in Nürnberg. Bring back the golden girls!
Thanks to a twitter thread that got out of hand last year, we found ourselves in Leipzig for a weekend to meet up with a whole pile of cool folks for an evening. Having never been to the city before, we thoroughly enjoyed our day of wandering beforehand. I was shocked at the amount of green right in the middle of the city, and this Wunschbaum, or wish tree, was an even more colorful sighting.
