All the stereotypes are here - lederhosen, dirndles, beer-halls, glorious Alpine peaks, incredible scenery, beautiful frescoed villages and legendary hospitality.  It's a free State with its' own constitution, staunchly independent and deeply traditional.... Read more >

Ines (my pilgrimage mentor:-) ) assures that my recent feelings of disorientation, disconnectedness and 'lost-in-space' are only stage 6 of the pilgrim's journey!  Very well documented apparently.  This seemingly integral stage was perefectly highlighted ... Read more >

We are still 'enjoying' the abnormally cold German summer.  Not so much cold, but very wet and stormy.  Unfortunately, the best thing we brought with us is our raincoats.  But, we just come home every night and take all our wet clothes off, dry them ... Read more >

After Paris, it was quite a relief to fly into Berlin.  Everything is organised, clean, efficient, colourful, and it is not quite so chaotic.  The weather has improved immensely and we are now enjoying a hot European summer. From the airport we bussed ... Read more >
