Well, the day is finally here-we are actually going to get in the car tomorrow and drive away!!! Just for a few days-but this is the first family trip(even though mini) in almost 2 years. The first stop on our journey is Lingen(Ems) to visit my mother in law. She is turning 88 on Sunday--a reason to celebrate!
The above picture is the old courthouse in Lingen. Civil Cermonies are held here including my civil wedding way back in 1989!
Then on Monday we are going to drive to southern germany-Munich to be exact. Depending on our moods we might drive all the way. But, should something along the way catch our eye-no one is stopping us from getting out of the car and exploring what ever there is to see! The highlight of our trip will be 2 days in Munich, where we will reunite with Doris, a college roommate of mine! I am truly looking foward to seeing her again after 20 years.
Like I said-just a mini trip but one that is needed for this family. Some time away from the world wide web and tv´s and computer games is like chicken soup for the soul! Be prepared lots of pictures will be posted!!!
