I totally agree. I'm not sure when we'll ever get to Europe so I absolutely love hearing all these stories!

I just realized tonight that I had never made it over to your PTR - what poor manners I have! It's been fun reading about your plans and seeing/reading about Germany! Very cool! Look forward to reading about your adventures!!

Patricia, thanks for the input and for nagging me to get on with the PTR... No, I really enjoy having such dedicated readers!! I will try to put up something tonight... I am very entertained by your TR and reading is so much easier than writing...

Thank you for the compliment re: my name. I always thought it was a strange name growing up because it wasn't common where I lived. Now I like it. My daughters both have unusual names - my older daughter has a Greek name (Amara) and the younger one has an Irish name (Teagan). I hope they don't go through a "why did I get a weird name" phase.

I know frighteningly little about other countries, so wherever you want to start is fine with me!
Tara, I will send you a PM about hosting exchange students. As I said, my family really enjoyed it!

I love your daughters' names. My name is pretty unusual as well - or at least it used to be when I was a kid. But it was my grandmother's name and I always was proud of it! At 16 I even successfully made all my friends stop using my nick name at that time (a German version of Maggie) and got them to use my full name. Since then I really have a thing about calling people by their real, very often very beautiful names, not any "cute" abreviations.

I guess your problem with Europe is the flight there. Otherwise I can only encourage everyone to travel to Europe, it is not so much more difficult to travel than anywhere else.

Back in Berlin

Hello everyone!

I'm back in Berlin as well an Magdalene keeps on telling me that I have to post more comments so that I then can post pictures of my trip to England. So...

Even though I haven't posted anything, I can assure you, that I think about our trip every single day!!!!
For instance: I named my new MacBook ORLANDO, and of course I only got it to be better eqiped for planning and writing our PTR

I also took Magdalene and Mike, my husband, on a specially pre-trip, we will tell you about later (you can add Heidepark to Nuremberg and Copenhagen on the list of places you will see pictures of and read about, I hope Magdalene doesn't mind I mentioned it )

And.... I justed talked to Magdalene on the phone, and she alreday forgot that she promised an instalment tonight So you can thank ME for reminding her.

forgot to introduce my avatar: it is my DH's oldest friend.... Have to ask him, how old this Mickey really is.
He obviously went through good AND hard times with him and therefore I have banned Mickey from the sofa, but today he was allowed to sit there for a photo session - and doesn't he look happy?

I was really planning on getting started writing about Nuremberg... But now it is already so late that I will just give you a teaser:



This is St Lorenz (Lawrence to you and the German is actually pronounced more or less the same as the English name). One of the two main churches of Nuremberg. Nuremberg was a free city, which means that is was like a kind of republic, governed only by the city council. It used to be a rich city which did a lot of trade and was famous for its toy and clock makers. It's best times were from 1300-1600. St Lawrence was the church the city built to impress from 1200-1400. It is actually a protestant church as the Nuremberg city council decided to become Lutheran in 1525 and therefore everyone had to follow.

The church was heavily damaged during WW II as was most of the old city center. But it was rebuilt after the war and actually has a number of interesting pieces of art (which were kept safe in the dungeons of the Nurembeg castle during WW II). Southern German Lutherans never destroyed all the pictures of the saints as they did in Northern Germany. It is an impressive piece of architecture and it is really in the center of the city. The picture was taken from the main shopping street.

Beautiful picture, Flossbolna. I spent about a month in Italy when I was in law school and one of the things I loved about Europe was touring/looking at the older architecture. What passes for old in the US doesn't really come close, does it. And I grew up in California, where it's "old" if it was built in the 1800's.

Magdalene - I cannot believe I missed your PTR!

I just spent the better part of an hour catching up though! Your plans sound wonderful, and your sister (and her avatar) are adorable. Neither of you look as old as you are.

This is so true ...it must crack Europeans up when we talk about our old Colonial buildings in Boston and Philadelphia that are from the 1700s when that is somewhat "modern" history for them...after the Enlightment...

I love the older architecture too......which is part of the reason I was pushing for the trip update......sorry......


I do love the picture/update though...

I know what you are talking about. But in a certain way I appreciate the modern cities in the US. I think it's part of: if something is different from what you are used to, it's more interesting.

Your husbands Winnie sounds lovely!! Mike's Mickey really is something special, I have never heard of anyone of my generation having a Disney plush before. I wonder wether Katharina and Mike would be able to sell it for lots of money to some collector...

Old architecture will be coming soon, I promise, but now I have a trip related mini update first!
