Travel Adventures to Germany

  • Barb and Baden’s Excellent Christmas Adventure – Part 3

    Speed There’s almost no subject on my blog that I’ve written about more when we’ve been in Germany than driving. Driving fast. For anyone who has a remote interest in cars and driving, it is well know that Germany is the holy grail of places…

  • Barb and Baden’s Excellent Return to Germany – Final

    The Uniqueness of Bear-leen Several weeks ago I had written about how we were originally only planning on coming to Berlin (properly pronounced bear-leen) for the entire Germany trip. Back then it was going to be a much shorter 8-10 day trip and of course…

    Lakefront Views There’s something about the water that draws us. Having waterfront property automatically is more valuable and most of us look forward to going to a beach to get away from it all. We’ve been here in the lakeside town of Konstanz for a…

  • Barb and Baden’s Excellent Return to Germany – Part 1

    After travelling 9 time zones it’s more than natural that the first day would be pretty rough. We flew into Frankfurt with a stop in Montreal and I’m now more than convinced that doing a non-stop flight from Vancouver to Frankfurt is less preferable. While…

  • Germany 2006 Pictures

    I guess that with the posting of my pictures from my recent trip to Germany that this means that things are now officially done. My Germany 2006 pictures can be found here. Baden

  • Baden’s Excellent German Adventure – Final

    Berlin Stopover A few months ago when Frank and I were discussing the agenda for this vacation, we hadn’t discussed stopping in Berlin on our way from Hamburg to Dresden. This subject only came up last week as Frank suggested that since our train to…

  • Baden’s Excellent German Adventure – Part 4

    Flensburg Reunion In my last installment, I was saying that I was on my way to Hamburg where I needed to transfer trains to catch the connecting train to Flensburg in northern Germany where I would be staying the night with Barb’s uncle and aunt…

    Meeting old Friends About a month ago, I had made arrangements with our friend Anette to meet her for lunch today as it would likely be the only time that I would have to see her on this trip to Germany. For those of you…

  • Baden’s Excellent German Adventure – Part 2

    Touching down in Germany My flight to Frankfurt was non-eventful but I couldn’t help but think that a long 10 hour flight like that would have been made much easier if I had someone to talk to – like Barb. I lucked out and was…

  • Baden’s Excellent German Adventure – Part 1

    Defining Online in New Terms I think that this definitely must be a first for the postings that I write to my blog. The idea of me composing this while I am on the plane is nothing new as I usually do a lot of…

  • Barb and Baden’s Excellent German Adventure – Final

    This will be the final installment of our Excellent German Adventure story. Dec 29: Our story continues with us arriving at the Frankfurt train station. We took a short 2 hour ride from Baden-Baden and were met at the platform by Anette and Frank. We…

  • Barb and Baden’s Excellent German Adventure – Part 6

    It’s been about 10 days since my last update as there has been some difficulty in getting access to a reliable Internet computer for a while. Anyway, here’s what’s been going on for the past while: Dec 21: Today we left the town of Garmisch…

  • Barb and Baden’s Excellent German Adventure – Part 4

    Well we sadly left Barb’s dad at the train station in Berlin and said our goodbyes before heading off to the Bavarian city of Münich. We arrived in Münich on Friday afternoon and prepared ourselves for our 4 day stay here. We first checked out…
