A Glimpse of Germany

The last week has been crazy!  Yes, I know I said that when I visited New York, but this past week’s adventures took it to a new level.  Lukus and I traveled to Germany to celebrate my sister’s wedding.  It was beautiful, she was beautiful and the experience was just fantastic.  We visited vineyards, cellars, castles, small villages and cities.  As well as everything in between!  Of course leaving can be such sweet sorrow- especially when a security issue causes your plane to be delayed several hours causing you to miss your connection, resulting in 21 hours of travel from a hotel in Düsseldorf to our home in Los Angeles.  And while I was hoping to write a bit more in depth post for today, jetlag has gotten the best of me.  So instead, enjoy some photos from our trip….

The grapes are just starting to grow in the vineyards along the Mosel River.

A village home with cheerfully painted shutters and flower boxes.

A group of nuns enjoying the outdoors.

Ancient wine bottles in an ancient wine cellar.

Wild boar sniffing around for food.

One of the many fantastic fountains in Koblenz.

  2. Beautiful pictures as always. Sounds like a great time. Hope you’re rest up from that nasty jet lag soon!

  5. oooo! I’m jealous. Not of your jetlag but of your trip. Love the photos! I think the wild boars and the nuns are my favorites!

  6. I’m so jealous! Wow, your pictures are awesome and it sounds like a great trip!

    I am glad you had a great trip minus the plane delay and jetlag.

  8. Beautiful Pics! I so want to go to Germany and see a friend from ‘way back’. Positive: Your memories of this trip will be with you forever. Negative into a positive: Your jet-lag will be over before you know it :)
