Today is not just Memorial Day(a holiday in the USA) but also Pentacost Monday, and so a holiday here in Germany. Usually my days off are spent working in and around the house, but today we decided it was time to venture outside of our backyard and see what the world has to offer.
Along with friends of ours we made our way to the Spreewald for a boat ride. Imagine Venice....but without the buildings and oh so very very green.
The Spreewald is located about 80km southeast of Berlin. It is famous for its gherkins....they produce about 40,000 tonnes of pickels every year.
We had a great day and are already making plans to go again...this time though we are going to rent canoes....
You can rent houses...perfect for a few days of peace and quiet.
along the route, our boat stopped for a snack........
Ah.....pottery this time Spreewald made.....of course I had to buy a small something! And of course it was bakeware.......please check back for a post all about the new bakeware!
trying to find our way back to the boat
Happy Monday Everyone!
