I Saw the Sign Inspirietry

The kids and I were walking back to our apartment after a fun evening at the swimming pool.  The forecast had predicted a hot day, but by the time we got to the pool a little after 5 o’clock, clouds were building over the mountains and the air had turned cool.  Scott and the kids jumped off of the diving boards and swam for a...

Meet Hoher Fricken, My Bad Boyfriend Adventuriety

With visions of Kind Ludwig still dancing in our heads, we decided to clear them by hiking to a meadow that I had spotted from the deck of the closed restaurant on Laber Mountain a few days earlier (Four Lessons in a Three Hour Tour). My husband got out his map and his map reading skills and we headed out to the Hoher Fricken. Hoher...

A Refreshing Afternoon Dip Recuperiety

We all went to Wellenberg today for some easy on the joints, water fun.  The forecast called for a hot day and we thought it would be a perfect treat for the afternoon.  The kids started online school two days ago and the learning curve has been steep.  There is a lot to learn about just navigating the site and how the whole online school...

Granny’s Egg Noodles Domesticiety

We had a special dinner tonight.  Scott made Granny’s Egg Noodles and Creamed Chicken for dinner.  We enjoy this delicacy at home but it is especially meaningful here is Germany as his Grandmother was of German descent and there may even be relatives nearby!   We have limited, yet adequate cooking equipment and a bit of a language barrier, what is flour called? Ashley helped him...

Pürschling House Hike Part 3 Adventuriety

I am in love with Germany. The people are interesting and Bavaria at least, is breathtakingly beautiful. I have come to one conclusion that the people living in Bavaria (and maybe it’s true of all Germans) are crazy tough for one reason in my mind (and there are probably more reasons, a lot of fire wood around here), the Bier trinken und Wandern. I love...

Pürschling House Hike Part 2 Adventuriety

I’ve decided that while in Bavaria, my husband’s definition of hiking does not apply. He says you need to be at least a mile from the parking lot and doing a little bushwhacking in order to really be hiking. It seems that people here are hikers, there are hikers everywhere with hiking sticks, clothes and gear.  His definition of hiking here should be modified to,...

Pürschling House Hike Part 1 Adventuriety

It was a good day today. We hiked and ate and played cards and if you actually want to get to the card playing part, you’ll have to read all three of the Pürschling Blogs, it was a long day. We got an early start for the first time on our trip. It’s been afternoon hiking as we adjust to the new time zone, but...

Kaiserschmarrn and Gondolas Adventuriety

I have some good news to report today, some wrongs were righted and that is always a good thing.  I think I may have mentioned that my husband is cooking this year.  He’s a great cook when he wants to be because he looks up recipes and he follows them.  This is only mildly interesting to me because he makes some really yummy comfort food...

The Disney Epiphany Adventuriety

You know that saying about the journey and not the destination?  And the joy of unexpected surprises along the path?  Our adventure today reminded me of those nuggets of knowledge as well as highlighted some previously learned lessons.  The largest jewels in today’s crown of learning are, “be true to thine own travel style” and “the best experience is not always the most thorough experience.” ...

Four Lessons in a Three Hour Tour Adventuriety

One of the things that I love about traveling is that it turns your brain on.  Anyone who has ever traveled anywhere and I am including any destination other than sitting in your own living room knows that travel can be exhausting because of all kinds of reasons but most of all it is the “needing to figure out things” that is the exhausting part....
