My DH is the guy with the camera and once that thing attaches to his arm, he is in action. He took over 1600 photos and videos! I am feeling overwhelmed with how to edit the lot so I just pulled a few to show you, just to get started.
We begin in Stuttgart. It's a small city with about 1/2 million population - just the right size for us to start our adventure. I will start with some photos around the old Schloss (palace grounds).
This is a section of the Berlin Wall.
This is the famous Mercedes Benz museum. The architecture is really interesting. You walk from one floor to the next like a spiral.
This is my DH having fun with the one and only race car he will ever "drive"!
Here is a very happy mom visiting her boy's place of work.
Here's the drink of Germany! We are at a homey restaurant in the village where our son lives. The restaurant is in a renovated garage in someone's house, right in the middle of a neighbourhood! The food was home-y and yummy!
Here is part of Market Day (Saturday) in Stuttgart. There are many markets on market day. There is one for food as you see here, one for flowers , another for "fleas". The latter two are found in other squares. There is also an indoor "Market Hall", which, unfortunately we missed!
More royal 'what-its'. You know when you are traveled out when you can't remember names of things. This was turned into a museum.
The last photo was taken outside the Chocolate Museum in Cologne. That was another part of the trip but I won't show that here.
I also can't seem to add another line after the photo so I'll stop for now. We are still recovering from jet lag. Thank goodness it's the Thanksgiving weekend here in Canada, and we have a lot to be thankful for. We had a lovely time with our boy. He's matured leaps and bounds and we are so proud of him. The weather was fantastic (in the low to mid 20 C) and the beer was good!
Happy Thanksgiving to my Canadian friends!
