Jordan had some time off to take so we headed to Austria and Munich for a few days. I am still amazed (and feel overly blessed) each time we get to take a trip like this. Honestly, I never ever pictured myself seeing all of this. Ever. Anyway, I'll try not to make it too picture heavy, so if you want to see more, click here.
I picked up a few books on tape at the library before we headed out. This turned out to be a life saver. Hours of traffic is no fun, but at least the book helps it go by faster. After 6 hours we arrived at our precious hotel (Gasthaus).
Isn't it cute? And they raise deer in the backyard! And they have an albino baby deer! (What do you call a baby deer anyway?) It was easy to hop a bus into town for some exploring.
Then we had dinner at a Biergarten with an AWESOME view.
When we walked out some girls kept saying, "bello!" to Jordan. Hello, I know what that means and I am RIGHT HERE. Skanks. You can be assured that Jordan brings this up at any chance he gets.
The next day we went on a Sound of Music bike tour. (Thanks for the suggestion Allison!) We had a great time, even with our tour guide who rode 50 MPH on her bike. Rest assured, I did a good deal of singing. Jordan LOVED this. LOVED. Can you identify the parts of the movie from the pictures?
Then we went to the Eagle's Nest, a place built for Hitler, which is located just over the border in Germany. Only one building is left. Much of the original place was destroyed after the war. The place was over 6,000 feet in the air. I did fine once we were at the top, but I honestly thought I was going to die on the bus ride to the top. I was sweating, praying, and keeping my eyes on the floor. Luckily I lived long enough to see this...
Then yesterday we headed into Munich for a few hours. I had been once before, but Jordan had not. We found a walking tour that started at the right time and signed up! It was an awesome tour, even though the British accented German tour guide look like he had been up all night, poor guy. We saw a lot in 2 hours!
After a lunch at the Hofbrauhaus it was time to head home. We had an AWESOME weekend! How am I going to handle moving back to the states? I just don't know if going to Dallas will be quite as exciting.
VERY IMPORTANT P.S.-
Okay, maybe not SO important. I dyed my hair before we left. What do you think?
