Not far over the German-Czech border is the Bohemian city of Pilsen (locally, Plzeň).  What comes from Pilsen?  Pilsner.  Now, I prefer dark beer, but when we had the opportunity to pass through Pilsen last month, of course I insisted upon lunch and a pilsner.  It is worth noting that the beer was created by a Bavarian […]

Okay, folks, we’re down to just a few more pins on Some Guy’s Hat.  Two of the four remaining towns are in Germany.  This coming weekend, I’m going to head down to Ruine Rechberg, followed by Inzell, so that SGH can return to the last of the German towns.  I’ll be traveling solo, which means […]
