Whew!! 13 months here have really flown by and now it is time for the next chapter!! A review in photos of all the fun I have experienced living abroad here in Germany.
A Small, quaint town in the heart of the Black Forrest, Thomas and I stopped at the Guesthause Hirch for a wonderful german meal, the church bells rang, and the service was nice, the food superb.

The St. Barbara Capella (church) was built in the beginning of the 1300s in the town edge of Langensteinbach here in the Alb Valley.

Who really wants to spend extra time doing prep, maintence cooking and clean--up when there … Continue reading Dinner Made Easy

You read that correctly, make no mistake...we enjoyed the royal treatment at the Margravine Sibylla … Continue reading A Royal Event with the Margravine Sibylla Agusta
