Achtung Baby!

We have booked a hotel for our first 2 nights stay in Germany! It is the number 1 rated hotel on Trip Advisor in the quaint town of Partenkirchin. We will have a great view of the mountains from our room! Click on the picture below to check out the place…


Auf Wiedersehen!

Gutenmorgen, meine freunde!

Well, Christmas is near and DME is shutting down for the holidays so what else do we have to do? We’re going to Germany! Specifically, Munich, which is in the picturesque Bavarian region. It is in very close proximity to Austria, Switzerland, and little Lichtenstein so we’ll be able to travel the countryside and cross countries off our list! On a more somber note, we also plan on visiting a Concentration Camp; either Dachau or Mauthausen-Gusen.

I have to say that I’m very excited about seeing the beautiful Alps but I’m not looking forward to eating German food!! (One can only eat so much sausage and schnitzel.) I would like to read a book based in the Bavarian region (fiction, preferably) so if anyone has any suggestions please let me know! We’re leaving December 26, so we still will be able to see everyone on Christmas.

Have a great day!
