Dec 25, 2012 - Christmas Day

After the hustle and bustle of yesterday, Christmas Day came as something of a relief. We rose just before 9.00am so that we could make breakfast (despite our protestations, our hostess insisted on making us breakfast before returning to her family). We then had the luxury of taking our time to shower, re-dress, and relax before heading up the hill to join the others. We arrived around 10.45am and settled in to the family routine of the day. Once the kids were sorted and fed, we decided to follow our hosts to Bad Mergentheim for a walk....

Dec 24, 2012 - Christmas Eve in Weikersheim

Another good start to the day, complete with the eggs and ham for Barb. We woke to another sunny and mild day here in Germany – around 13˚. After we got ourselves sorted we drove to the supermarket to get a couple of items before heading up to Lars and Antje’s place. Ron took the girls to Bad Mergentheim whilst Barb stayed and went last minute grocery shopping with Antje. Being a rather small place, there are only two supermarkets in Weikersheim and, like the rest of Germany, they close from midday on Christmas Eve until the 27 December....

Dec 23, 2012 - Return to Weikersheim

We met for breakfast at 8.30am, and were packed and ready to leave by 9.00am. We trudged back to the car park with our bags, glad that it wasn’t raining, and loaded the car. Having studied Google maps earlier we were well prepared for our departure from Munich, although the GPS decided to play ball today and was quickly on-line. The streets were largely empty, which made the drive out of the city very easy. We had planned alternate side trips on our way back to Weikersheim: The girls would visit the Bavarian palace in Oberschlessheim, while...

Dec 14, 2012 - Settling in Weikersheim

After a surprisingly good sleep, we enjoyed our first breakfast at Hotel Garni. A very nice selection of breads, cold cuts, cheese and fruit kept Ron happy, while Barb tucked into a bowl of muesli. The hotelier is very nice but unfortunately does not speak English so our conversation is one of hand gestures and hoping like anything that she understands us. We left the hotel at 10.00am and drove to our friend’s house, where Zoë was looking after their daughter, Johanna. The three of us, with Johanna in her buggy, then went for a leisurely...

Dec 13, 2012 - Arrival in Germany

Having flown to Europe several times, there was nothing surprising about the journey to Frankfurt – it was long and not particularly comfortable, but it could have been a lot worse. Our passage through customs and immigration at Frankfurt airport was incredibly quick and painless, our bags all arrived, and the Peugeot folks were expecting us to pick up a car (Eurolease). After catching a courtesy bus to the hotel where the Eurolease agent was based, we accepted the vehicle (a Peugeot Partner Teepee), filled up at a nearby gas station, and...
