Mar 10, 2014 - Day 3: Upper Middle Rhine Valley

Today was very eventful. One of the attractions that I was most looking forward to on this trip was going to see the beautiful Rhine River. I got the chance to do that today! The Upper Middle Rhine Valley was the only thing on my agenda for today, and I enjoyed every bit of it. The Middle Rhine Valley is full of gorgeous castles, historic towns, and the most luscious vineyards you will ever see. I realized a lot about the various landscapes of Germany. The Upper Middle Rhine Valley is immense with history and legends. It was such a...

Mar 9, 2014 - Day 2: First Day in Germany!

Last night, whenever I arrived at the airport in Frankfurt, I took a taxi to my hotel in Wurzburg. Once I pulled up I was taken in by the beauty of the whole place. The pictures that I had seen on the internet did no justice to the actual place. I got checked in, a bellhop helped me carry my bags up to my room, and I was set for the night! I was quick to link my phone to the WiFi that was provided for free. After getting settled in, I took my shower in the beautiful bathroom in my hotel room, and I went to sleep, (jet lag is an...

Mar 1, 2014 - The Queen of the Castle

The Queen of the Castle Susi’s apartment was on the third floor, naturally, and pretty big for a European apartment. She had it filled with wonderful pieces of furniture, knickknacks and art, and two Princes, Casimir and Romeo, brother cats, to help her rule the roost. The last time I had seen Susi was two nights before Michael died, he and I went to dinner at her Mom’s house, Susi was flying back to Germany the next day and this was her goodbye dinner. We didn’t know it was a forever goodbye dinner, Michael died the night she arrived back...

Feb 26, 2014 - Blacky Au Choux

Blacky Au Choux On our second day, I started thinking about the next phase of my trip, my flight to Paris to pick up a borrowed car. Em and I were flying out on the same day but not at the same time, but when I finally looked at my ticket for the details, I realized that I had booked with Ukraine Airlines, with a stopover in Kiev. The day before my flight, dozens of people had been killed in rioting in Kiev, it was the middle of a coup, and didn’t seem like the greatest time to be visiting the area. When I talked to Mary on the phone, she...

Jan 23, 2014 - Munich, Germany

January 22, 2014 On the plane it was soooooo quite. It was too quite. I need to be home with India by my side. I should have stayed with India. She is my internal Kingdom. I wish someone could understand my love for the great nation. These countries including Canada are not for me anymore. I really don't think they ever were. It’s no wonder why I go crazy when I am in Canada. Everything here is so quite but everyone is going so fast. It’s fucking stupid. Make more to get more shit you don’t don’t need. I am still guilty of that. The Rolex...

Jan 13, 2014 - Munich

Today was a visit to the Deutches Museum. This is an incredibly large museum that even after being there for 5 hours, we didn't see it all. The boats, aeronautical, planes, machinery and cars were the most interesting. We then visited the Cavaliere Theatre which we didn't get a chance to do yesterday. Very impressive. Alex and Steve off to the Augustine Beer Hall while the girls did shopping. Sorry about my brevity in these blogs but I find by the time I get back to the hotel and start this that it is getting late. I also end up being dats...

Jan 12, 2014 - Fussen to Munich

Today was a reasonably short train trip from Fussen to Munich in, once again, fine and clear sunny weather. This is unbelievable weather we have had for the whole trip. We walked the old town of Munich seeing ice skating, the Rathaus, Peterskirche, etc and then visited the rooms of the Residenz. Incredible furniture, paintings and layout. This is a palace which doesn't look that grand but is exquisite inside. After all this we ended up at the Hofbrahaus Beer Hall which holds a couple of thousand people with an oompah band. You all share...

Jan 11, 2014 - Fussen

Even though the village of Fussen is very attractive and interesting, the main reason for coming here is to visit the two nearby castles of King Ludwig 11. He had extremely extravagant tastes in building and fitting out both castles that were built on the top of small mountains only a few hundred metres apart. We visited Howanschwager (i think that is how it is spelt) Castle. When we bought the tickets for both castles,new had specific times that we had to be at each for an organised showing in English. We then went to Neuschwanstein...

Jan 10, 2014 - Salzburg to Fussen, Germany

Today was spent mostly in travelling in two trains from Salzburg to Fussen in Southern Germany changing trains in Augsburg. There was a bit of snow on the ground the closer we got to Fussen but unfortunately there was very little at Fussen. This was the last chance to have any snow as we go to Munich after this with very little likelihood there will be any there. The weather again is fine and sunny reaching probably five degrees. Fussen is a very attractive beautiful village with a palace, monastery and old houses.

Jan 10, 2014 - Día 1. Gran Canaria- Munich

Ya estamos esperando en el aeropuerto de Munich!! El vuelo de ayer perfecto, elegimos el Hotel NOVOTEL AIRPORT, y hemos quedado encantados. Puro lujo que por desgracia no hemos podido aprovechar por lo breve de la estancia. Último bocadillo antes de cambiar al arroz con pollo!! Calculamos llegar a Bangkok a las 7 de la mañana de allí que serán más o menos las 12 de la noche en Canarias. Será un día largo entre avión y avión... Múnich-Doha-Bangkok. Pero ilusionados como niños!!! Hasta pronto, Carlota y Fabián

Dec 22, 2013 - A day in Rothenburg

Spent the day in Rothenburg although not that easy to get to from Nuremberg by train even though it is not that far away. Had to change trains three times. Although we have been here twice before, we still love the place and Desley and Steve not having been here before added to our enjoyment. Still a very beautiful town with all the pretty buildings and once again another Christmas market. We love them and this time tried the mulled apple cider as well as the longest bratwurst ( this was shared between Pam and Alex .....see photo of the...

Dec 21, 2013 - Nuremberg

Visited Dokumentationszentrum Museum today which is the gigantic remains of the former Nazi Party Rally Grounds near Nuremberg. There was an audio visual tour of the unfinished Congress Hall. It was a very informative display of the history of Hitler. Then back to the old town visiting St Sebald church, the old city walls and Nuremberg castle. Finished the day with a delicious German meal at the Zum Spiess Gesellen restaurant. Once again it was a very cold day with a maximum of 2 degrees getting down to the minuses when it started to get...
