    Pöcking

    October 13, 2017 in Germany

    Our AirBnB is in Pöcking, which is located on the Starnberger Lake (5th largest lake in Germany). We went for a walk down to the lake this afternoon, taking the guitar with us. We also needed to surreptitiously collect kindling for our fire (none provided, not sure if you are allowed to collect sticks?). Kate has also been on a quest at each water location we have visited to float leaf boats with a stone in it. She had an abundance of large autumn leaves to choose from today.

    Our accommodation is the top floor of a traditional Bavarian home, so we have a wooden ceiling, huge beams and sloping ceilings.

    Finn was desperate to try on his new football kit after dinner. I have never seen him so happy - I think we have hit on the best birthday present ever! Brought tears to my eyes...

    Pilgrimage to Andechs

    August 17, 2017 in Germany

    Since 1455, Benedictine monks have been managing an Abbey on the holy mountain of Bavaria. The first documented pilgrimages date back to the 12th century, making it through oldest place of pilgrimage in Bavaria.

    It just so happens that they also operate a brewery, and a pretty fantastic one at that, which may or may not have encouraged me to make said pilgrimage.

    Took the train down to Herrsching to begin a march through the woods and up the mountain. There is a very clear path with minimal places to accidentally turn off the trail. I did not take that path.

    I ended up starting (accidentally) from a different point, which ended up being a good thing, as the trail was much more challenging and woodsy, which I really appreciated. I took the normal path down, so I got some variety​ in for good measure.

    I popped out right in front of the monastery, which was delightfully cool, in both senses of the word. Didn't see any of the monks around, so I figured I'd check to see if they were at the bräustüberl and have a beer while I was at it. Still no sight of them, so settled in to wait and had lunch (delicious pork), and another beer or three.

    Starnberger See

    October 8, 2017 in Germany

    Bei schlechtem Wetter ging es heute von Gablingen los Richtung Süden. In Hirblingen wurde noch gemeinsam mit Willi zum Mittag der Magen gefüllt (natürlich in einer rustikalen Dorfkneipe ;-)), um dann auf dem Weg bei Marianne im Kempfenhausen noch einen Kuchen draufzulegen.
    Am späten Mittag ging es dann weiter über Garmisch Partenkirchen, Ehrwald und den Fernpass zu unserem ersten "Anlaufpunkt", nach Nassereith.Read more

    Castle, Tiara, Motorcycles & Cars

    May 6, 2016 in Germany

    Woke up to a beautiful morning in Munich. It's off to the Castle 2 hour drive than hoping to be back in time to visit BMW Welt and the BMW Museum. Cuz John and Robert working at BMW is just not enough! LOL
    Our drive was beautiful. The drive on the outskirts is breathtaking. We past so many small towns. All look the same yet each one has its own unique look. I kept wondering if the 1st thing they build is a CHURCH with a steeple. Hmmmm....
    John kept thinking we were going the wrong way but GPS said that was the right way as did my MAPS app.
    I kept looking around for the best town to live in. I mean who wouldnt want to live in the midst of greenery, flowers and hills. Certainly love the outskirts more than the city.
    As we got somewhat close the beauty of the snow capped mountains (Bavarian Alps) the snow on the mountains reminded me of icing on a cinnamon roll. I mean a TINY bit.
    We stopped close to arriving to the Neuschwanstein Castle to take some pictures. (With our camera) My cell decided to STOP working 20 minutes into our drive. That's why you didn't see postings or check-ins yesterday.
    The pics I'll be posting are not great. I took pics of the camera screen. We are hoping to get better WIFI today to upload to Facebook.
    John had a great time driving on the AUTOBAHN. Loved driving "FAST" !!! Having a fast car certainly helped. Therefore, we arrived back in Munich to visit BMW ontime.
    BMW was what we expected and more. Any BMW FAN (like myself) would appreciate it! John appreciated it also considering being an employee of such a huge corporation. The building alone is worth the visit. No charge for BMW Welt but only 10Euros for the museum. Had lunch there and did a bit of shopping.
    I realized I liked the Mini Cabrio Convertible. Would be a great car for Kalyn and Kenzie! Robbbbbb hook us up. Hahaha~
    Turned the car in and walked around to shop for another piece of luggage. YES we need another one.
    Unfortunately, shops and malls close early so John will go get one in the morning before our train ride "First Class" to Salzburg, Austria. Our next country. We are very fortunate cuz the train station is across the street. Many shops...money exchange places, food, desserts, sweets, souveniers and STARBUCKS❣
    Our fast train leaves at 11:15am it's 9:18am now.

    AUSTRIA here we come.

    Scary

    October 12, 2017 in Germany

    Today we went to a little town called HALLSTEIN. Inside the town with only 17 homes inside the town was a slide. At the slide was a ski lift. At the ski lift was a house. At that house was a shop. At the shop we went up the ski lift like a flying car. It was scary. You could see the grassy hill with the toboggan run that was snaking its way down the tall green hill. When we got to the top we walked down to the top of the toboggan run. As dad went down the run I got ready. The run was fun it took 10-12 minutes to get to the bottom. I went down curvy twists and run turns. The steep hills were scary and the tight turns were hard to go slow on. It was super fun.

    After the tobogganing we drove in traffic to EAGLES NEST. This was Hitlers holiday home. He went there 14 times. At thus place we went on a bus ride up the hil. Than we went on a brass lift 124m up. We were on the place were a master mind had walked. It was pretty cool. We had lunch at the house and did a five minute walk that was only 2 minutes. After 2h we came back down a headed two our new home for 3 nights.

    MUNICH

    October 13, 2017 in Germany

    Today we went on the train to MUNICH. At Munich we saw the RATHAUS. This building is significant because it is the town hall. There was a little show on the building called GLOCKENSPIEL. At the end if the show the little gold bird chirped 3 times. It was cool. After that Findlay wanted to go inside the giant sport shop. After that we went to the top of the tower. The views were magnificent and we could see the giant soccer stadium on the horizon. After having lunch at a BEER HALL. We went to some more soccer shops and Findlay got a shirt, shorts, socks and a cap for BAYERN MUNICH. When we came home we went to the shops got some dinner for the next 2 nights. We came home and did ourtcome work.

    PS: Mum and dad watched TV

    Starnberger See

    June 1 in Germany

    Die Copilotin hat nicht aufgepasst, weil sie mit der sympathischen Vermieterin des WoMos getickert hat und der Pilot ist aus Versehen von der Autobahn abgefahren.

    Nicht so wirklich schlimm bei diesen Blidern. Da möchte man sich gleich mit auf die Liegewiese legen.
