I’m not sure how it’s possible that we haven’t been back to the Allgäu for hiking since this trip. That may need to be remedied as soon as possible if I spend much more time looking at this picture…
Since one of last month’s photo post included the festival carb option, I thought today we’d look at one of the more popular protein choices. Now, who wants to split a chicken?
When visiting European castles, one doesn’t necessarily expect to see the king’s underthings hanging out to dry.
Unless of course, the castle includes an area that is set up as a stage for theatrical productions… in which case, all bets are off.
I’m not normally one for posting pictures with people in them which makes this one an exception. Normally I shy away from portrait work, but I needed exercise in getting out of my comfort zone. This was the last shot I took on a lovely summer day, in which an equally lovely friend let me take a ridiculous amount of pictures of her as we wandered through our city center. Artsy lady days are fun days. 🙂
Considering that we just got through the Pentecost holidays, I’m guessing I’ve heard about Lake Garda somewhere between one and 10,000 times in the last month. It’s an extremely popular destination for Bavarians since you can get there in less than five hours. While I would’ve loved to get there again this year, I’m consoling myself with the thought that we leave for our summer vacation in a few days…
My first trip to Berlin was so hectic, so stressful, and so overwhelming, I don’t think there was any way I could have possibly imagined moving to Germany on a permanent basis. But eight years in Europe later, and just shy of six in Germany (more on that later), here we are.
If it’s hot today as it was on this day, then I am supremely jealous of my past self. Nothing feels quite like some Wisconsin lake spray on your face when the humidity is through the roof. Most Wisconsinites would probably live directly on a lake in summer, given half the chance.
On the other hand, taking a tour on the Original Wisconsin Ducks is hardly an every day occurrence. But when taking your German boyfriend to visit the tourist trap capital of the state, it’s a must. Everything is a little cheesy (WI pun intended), but it’s pretty fun either way.
What’s that? You thought that once you’ve had one pretzel, you’ve pretty much had them all?
Think again my friends, think again.
Get yourselves to the nearest fest (they’re everywhere this time of year), and bring your appetite. After all, you’ll need something to soak up all those Maß.
A set up scene from what may go down in history as one of the most fun (and hipster) weddings of all time. There was a tattoo artist. And a band, And curry. And a giant tent to sleep in, which thankfully we skipped out on as there was a complete deluge overnight.
But… one year ago on this day I got to see one of the girls from my original gangster TEFL course marry an absolutely fantastic Czech dude in a ceremony that was incredibly fitting to the both of them. It was good times.
As this posts, I don’t know where exactly I am, but I’m hoping that I’m still close enough to this place to sit down for a minute. Especially if it’s as gorgeous of a day… thumbs pressed and fingers crossed…
