In the summer of 2006, I flew to England to visit my friends Rob and Caroline and their two kids – Aby and Zak. (Jose flew out two weeks later to join us)
I was going to be visiting for a month and we jam-packed the entire trip. When it was all said and done, I had been to England, France, Belgium, Germany and Austria in about two weeks. Even more incredible, we drove from a London suburb to southern Germany in THIS vehicle.
YES that’s right…all FIVE…5…yes FIVE of us – traveling at high speeds on the autobahn in a Peugot.
Regardless of the tight spaces, we had a great time. We visited friends of Rob and Caro’s in Germany. We toured Nurenberg — Check out the “old” reflection on the “new” building.
Good Friends – Zak, Aby, Rob, Caro, Christian and Elke
Yummy Food – CHECK OUT THE SIZE OF THAT PRETZEL!!
and shouldn’t all castles have a satellite dish? (look carefully)
We had dinner at a local restaurant. I had jager schnitzel and spaetzel and it was delicious!
Our travels continued to Berchtesgaden to see the Eagle’s Nest. This was an amazing view. Honestly, words cannot describe how amazing it was – or how small you felt up on the top of that mountain! We took a scary (but exhilarating) bus ride up a windy mountain roads– you can see a wider portion of it here
We crossed over the Austrian border and toured Salzburg.
and saw some InCreDibLe pretzels!!! wowie
Eventually, we made our way back to England (via a pit stop in Brugge for a Belgium fry and waffle run in our pjs)
Whew — that’s it for tonite –
