I've been trying to get used to my new camera. So I did a little experimenting this weekend.

We took a little trip via train to Stuttgart's sommerfest. It was pretty fun. Lots of food, drink, live music, things for kids. The Germans seem to always have a fest going on downtown. We love it!

Brad and his mystery meat Doner Kabob. Hmm... No thanks. I tend to stick with vegetarian when it comes to schnitzels and kabobs. I have this thing with needing to know what I am eating! :)

Riding the train back home. 2.50 Euro one way. Not bad seeing that the train station is literally right outside our house. No parking, no hassle!

Our silly pool on our porch. Gotta keep the Michigan vibe alive for as long as possible!

So we have some traveling coming our way! We're pretty excited about it all!
Here's what we have planned so far:

Next weekend: Strasburg, France (only a 90 minute drive away!)
Labor Day weekend: Madrid, Spain
October: Salsburg, Austria
January: Venice, Italy (with our playgroup)

I believe "doner" means lamb in Greek. I could be wrong, though.

I wish I could trade lives with you! I lived in Germany for 8 years with my family (Army brat), and my husband and I dream of being able to live overseas someday. I love reading about all your trips! I hope I'll get to do that again someday. Meanwhile, I'm here in southeast Michigan, sweltering in the humidity. I'd be happy to trade locations with you sometime! ;)
