In the Spring of 2010, SB and I flew to Germany to visit dear friends and to take a junket to Dresden and Prague. On the way back from Dresden, we stopped at a beautiful Ludowingian castle called Das Wartburg near Eisenach. One section of the castle was a long wing comprised of this beautiful fachwerk - timbered construction that supports stone and plasterwork. The lighting was just beautiful that morning and to top it off there was a pair of doves nestled into a sunny corner. So romantic and lovely ... it seemed that my tourist snapshot couldn't get any prettier. I fell in love with the place.
The next Sunday, we went for a walk in the Odenwald near Weinheim ... up into the hills. The Spring breezes were really soft and warm that afternoon. I stopped at one point and turned off the trail to take a rest and just look ... it was the stuff of dreams for me. Just look ... I often think back to that day. I can't tell you how much I love the German countryside and miss our German friends.
