Good Morning!

As we drove to the nearby gym for our daily workout this morning, we were greeted by this sight as the sun was about to peep over the mountain. I couldn't resist pulling over, taking my iPhone from my pocket, and taking this picture.

Today will be another good day!

Germany Trip 2013

Barbara and I visited our son in Germany for thirteen days, leaving the U.S. on April 22 and returning May 4, 2013.

During the 13-day trip we visited Frankfurt, Wiesbaden, Cologne (Köln), Würzburg, Rothenburg ob der Tauber, Kattenhochstatt, Nuremberg (Nürnberg), Neuschwanstein and Hohenschwangau Castles (near Füssen), Munich (München), Leipzig, Berlin and Hamburg (whew!).

We had a great time! Here are photos of a few places we visited. Except for a day trip to Cologne from Wiesbaden (by train) and the three days in Berlin (where we used the S-Bahn and the U-Bahn exclusively), all travel was by car, driven by our son.

Frankfurt April 23

Our flight having left America on Monday, April 22, we arrived at about noon on the 23rd. John met us and drove us in his new VW GTI to our hotel in Wiesbaden.

Wiesbaden April 23-25
