Germany

My journey to Germany began in Winterswijk, NL where I had the privilege of staying with my friends Bob and Manuela in their lovely home - built in the 1800s and in a neighborhood of huge and stately homes. We went out for patat - which I'm pretty sure I'm addicted to now - and I had some of their delicious coffee hand ground from beans. Man, that's good. Dutch people have coffee a lot, which suits me just fine!


We visited Aalten, NL to see the house of Angus Young (from the band AC/DC) is building there, and then headed over to Germany. There's just a small sign welcoming you to Germany, no border, no customs, nothing.


This is a real door bell.



I have no idea what this will become when it grows up and becomes a whole car.




The house Angus Young is building.



Lunchtime in Germany. I wanted Bratwurst with sauerkraut and potatoes.


Oh yeah - the good stuff!


I have no idea what this translates as.



Beautiful rolling hills and countryside. It was raining, green and beautiful.



Map of Nottuln, Germany.



A typical German house in Nottuln.



From Wikipedia - Nottuln is a municipality in the district of Coesfeld in the state of North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany. Original settlement of the Nottuln area dates back to about 4000 BC. Wow.
A local church. I have no idea how old this building is, but it's really cool.


You can buy a candle to burn. I got one for my cat Juju.

I enjoyed your pictures, especially Angus' house. It's been too long since I've been to Europe.

Angus's house looks like it is about finished. I've been looking at pictures of the construction progress for a couple of years now. It's unbelieveable how long it has taken Angus and Ellen to have that house built!

Good luck with your travels and career.
