Been a while since I last posted. Hard to believe we have been in Germany for one year already. Had two friends visit from Walla Walla Army corps this summer. We have been touring our butts off this year. Been to the alps four times now. Also went to Innsbruck Austria. Checked out Hitlers eagles nest retreat. Stayed at the Von Trapp family(sound of music) home in Salzburg Austria. Went to Prague, Czech Republic. Checked out Amsterdam. That is a wild city. One big party. But, It looks like the pot bars are going to stop serving non Nederlanders. Went to a hooters restaurant while in Prague. I'm going to date myself now. When our waitress greeted us. The first thing that popped into my mind was this. Natasha from the Rocky & Bullwinkle cartoon. Been a blast driving on the autobahn. I've had the wife's 328 & my Zed 4 cruising down the road at 140 MPH. And it was totally legal.:nana It sure can get spendy going that fast though. If I burn through my fuel rations. I then have to buy fuel at German prices. Which is just about $9.00 per gallon. Yikes! I wish I had a better internet connection. Hard to load pictures to photobucket at 256K. Cheers & Best Regards Jerry F. Molschbach, Germany P.S. If anyone comes to Europe on holiday. Send me a PM. I'll grill up some brats and pour you a cold beer. And point you to some cool spots.
