German Eye Candy


I'm in Burgundy, France right now...getting ready to go guzzle some yummy French wine...but I thought in case anyone was still looking at my blog, I'd post a few quick pictures from the past 4 days. Mr. Wonderful and I were in Munich and Berlin, Germany. Both were stunning in their own ways. Both were immaculate. And the German people: I adore them. What a great country! That's the Bavarian countryside above, by the way...


A Bavarian castle outside of Munich - I believe it's spelled Neuschwanstein.


A palace built by the same royal figure who built the castle above.


Oh yeah baby—dinner at the biergarten!


One of the perfectly manicured parks in Munich. A truly lovely city.


Berlin Wall memorial outside Postdamer Platz.


The Holocaust Memorial


Some sweet German architecture. Mr. W was in love with it.

That's all I got right now. Travel weariness has taken its toll on me and I need a glass of wine the size of my head. Hopefully, more pics to come...

Or I should say, "Der Awesomehausen."

I speak German.

If I didn't like you I'd hate the crap out of you.

But thank you for sharing! :)

Are you coming home soon? I'm frankly getting tired of looking at pictures of all your world travels. "Immaculate, Lovely, wine, more wine, beer"...blah blah blah....

laura said...

Sounds like an awesome way to cap of your travels!!

Jane said...

Heey, how about we play a game? Let's trade lives for a day.

I MISS YOU!

Alysha said...

YAY!!! I love Germany. I feel homesick now.

Dingo said...

Wow! From the castles to the city, Berlin looks amazing.

You know I love you, right? You know I'm not the least bit jealous that you are traveling all over Europe, right? You also know that I hope you've gained 50 pounds from all the beer, chocolate, scones, and delicious meals you've had, right? It's only fair.

Hey Mel, so great to see you're having fun in Germany.

And at the same time I'm sad that I have not written to you earlier. I'm a friend of Alysha, living in Munich. If I knew that you were comeing to Munich, I would've loved to meet you here because I'm following your blog (sorry, I'm a blog-snooper) since last year - and I love it and I'm a true fan of it! And now I missed out on that possibility... so sad! :-(

Keep on having fun on all your trips around Europe!!

Bye, eve
