Here is just some of my upcoming travel… WINTER Of course we start with Christmas markets, just a week away.  I’ve already laid out this year’s lineup here.  Christmas markets will consume my days throughout the Advent season.

Bad Ditzenbach: night one

Bad Ditzenbach: night one

This weekend I’ll be heading to Bad Ditzenbach as well as Geislingen, with Some Guy’s Hat. Bad Ditzenbach is one of quite a few spa towns that Some Guy visited.

The streets fill with kiosks of decorations, baskets, pottery, scarves, jewelry, wool socks…and Glühwein, Bratwurst, crepes, Flammkuchen, and cookies. Not to mention, a medieval market of leather goods, metalworks, soaps and other natural products, […]

November 9, 1989: Down Came the Wall

| November 8, 2014 | Reply

This month marks the 25th anniversary of the tearing down of the Berlin Wall. The wall came down on the 9th of November, 1989 with the whole world watching. Back in early 2005 and again in late 2012, I visited Berlin. Fortunately, the Wall that I saw was in pieces; no longer a barrier, it […]
