At my first glance walking towards the little town from the bridge it screamed out “old Italian architecture”, although with a […]

dying from christmas… not

After a regime of eat, sleep, eat and sleep I think it’s time for my annual cleanse to take over and save me. Spending Christmas walking, greeting people and seeing the most marvelous corners of Bavaria does not mean that my body excuses the amounts of food and drinks I have dumped into it. In […]
