Today I thought I’d take a break from the long-winded posts about various culture differences between Germans and Americans and instead tell about my latest outing with my husband (complete with pictures, of course).
I’ve mentioned several times in other posts that one of our favorite things to do is pick a town or village 1-2 hours away from us, and spend the day heading that direction while stopping to explore anything interesting we see along the way. Once we arrive at our destination, we spend a few hours exploring the area, and then we head home feeling satisfyingly worn out and happy.
Two summers ago, we visited the Befreiungshalle (Hall of Liberty) in Kelheim, and to this day, I still consider it one of the most magnificent things I’ve ever seen. From the very top of the memorial, you can look down and see all of Kelheim and the beautiful Donau (the Danube) winding it’s way through the amazing landscape. Ever since that moment, I’ve begged my husband to take me for a boat ride along the Danube, and yesterday my wish was finally fulfilled. Below are some of the pictures from our adventure. Enjoy! 🙂
