Over the river and through the woods

To Germany we would go on a sunny Sunday afternoon.


The hope of Spring still lingers under the snow.

Castle in Germany

A real German castle. The towers had been rebuilt but the rest of the walls seemed original.

Black swans

I had never ever in my life seen a black swan. I can’t say I even knew black swans existed. Black swans do exist and I had the pleasure of meeting some yesterday in Germany.

Wooden sign in German park

I love the wood craftmanship found all throughout Germany.

German building

This building looks like many found in and around Strasbourg built by the Germans while Alsace was part of Germany. Don’t ever say that they speak German in Alsace! It is a sensitive subject. The regional language spoken in Alsace is Alsatian which can be somewhat understood by a German speaker. It is not German.

Read the words…Sparkasse. Just a little humorous, no???

Cigerette machine in Germany

You will find one of these on just about every street. We saw one in the middle of a residential area with only houses and apartments around. Smokers living in or visiting Germany have found a smokers heaven. I love visiting Germany. I just wish that non-smokers were as well thought of.

    Loved the beautiful pics! It looks like you guys had a nice time. I can’t believe they have a cigarette vending machine on almost every street corner! Talk about easy access for youngsters!
