Sunday Snapshots: Looks Familiar

Franconia, 2016

I do love living out here, where I can watch the forest change season to season.

Sunday Snapshots: Snack Time!

Nürnberg, 2016

If you’re in the mood for a tasty pretzel, a large pile of thinly-sliced radishes, and a dish of Franken’s finest Obatzda, get yourself to the Nürnberg Volksfest. It’s on for one more week, but no promises that I don’t get there and eat all the Obatzda first.

Sunday Snapshots: Hills on Hills

Ireland, 2016

On this day two years ago we visited the Hill of Tara, once the seat of the High Kings of Ireland. The little hills and ridges are the remains of ancient earthen structures, and it feels like the sort of place where you shouldn’t be allowed to tramp all over it… but you are. The 360 degree views of the surrounding Irish countryside are spectacular, even on a gray and windy late-December day like we had. We don’t often take bus tours (as evidenced by this post), but we did on this occasion and it was worth it for the color commentary of our fellow travelers alone. Maybe that’s a story for another day…
