Riding the lines


Adventuring is so much fun, easy, and convenient while using the tram. I rode the rails today to view the country side during this love autumn season and the changing of the leaves in the Black Forrest. I stopped off in Bad Herrenalb and enjoyed a lovely breakfast at a Backerei--and warmed my hands with … Continue reading Riding the lines

Schloss Bruchsal, Bruschal, Germany


The German word 'Schloss' has many meanings in English, it can mean 'castle' 'Manor' 'Estate' and so many more things!!! This particular 'Schloss' was residence of some nobility and a politcal statement of the noblemans success.

The Legend of…St. George, the dragon slayer


According to the Golden Legend, the narrative episode of Saint George and the Dragon took place somewhere he called "Silene", in Libya; the Golden Legend is the first to place this story in Libya as a sufficiently exotic locale, where a dragon might be found. In the tenth-century Georgian narrative, the place is the fictional … Continue reading The Legend of…St. George, the dragon slayer

A day in Ruins, Waldkirch, Germany


  A day 'ruined' when taking an alternate route back to my abode. Absolutely Stunning!!!  I never found this place on a map for tourists or anything but with some digging, some history was learned and stumbling upon some ruins is a treasure---life off the beaten path sure has some old perks. The people in … Continue reading A day in Ruins, Waldkirch, Germany

Creativity and Coffee


I admit it, I am a coffee and postcard addict. I crave to sample and savor beans and caffeine wherever my feet go, taking a moment to send a postcard to a friend or family member.   I also collect ‘smashed’ pennies, kind where you insert a coin and a payment, turn the crank, and … Continue reading Creativity and Coffee

Over the River–and into Lauterbourg, France


  A new friend's invitation drove me to the edge, over the river, and thru the woods to a local French Restaurant---Au Bord Du Rhin Changing countries in this part of Europe is easy, by American standards. Planes, trains, automobiles, trams and so much more make it convienent and super accesible to cross borders. The … Continue reading Over the River–and into Lauterbourg, France

St. Martins Church, Ettlingen, Baden-Wartümberg, Germany


One lovely, very sunny (and thus hot day), I leisurely went into St. Martins to enjoy the shade and for prayers.  The church was silent, in reverence of peace and quiet--the church being void of other humans. I bolted upright from a very bizarre sound, not from the ding dang dong of the musical bells, … Continue reading St. Martins Church, Ettlingen, Baden-Wartümberg, Germany

Hobbled by Cobbles, Freiberg, Germany


Once upon a time...a long, long time ago, I dreamt of excitment, not tripping over uneven cobble stones, which is how I literally stumbled across some amazing things on the streets of Freiburg--I think, therefore I am not sure, that these were once markers of cities, trades or something that were once welcome into the … Continue reading Hobbled by Cobbles, Freiberg, Germany
