Thanks for joining me here in Bavaria today.
And what a beautiful day it was!
Garmisch Partenkirchen was our first destination.
Now this is what I call wall art!
Tucked in between the mountains, looking up at the Zugspitze, the tallest mountain in Germany.
Saw a silly cow up on the balcony,
And this silly cow ate way too much Kuchen! Coffee, cake. Cake, coffee.
Food frenzy in the Alps!
Picture Postard town.
But what I enjoyed most was the climate! No wind and a pleasant 20 degrees centigrade, but no direct sun. The sort of day you dream of.
T-shirt and shorts were in order, and a stroll through the beautiful Kurpark,
With its magnificent flower beds
We just managed to avoid being mowed down in the Pedestrian Precinct by cyclists with built in ROW (right of way) before we set off for the Tegernsee for a late lunch.
I had been there many times many years before, and really wanted Mum and Dave to experience it.
It is breath-taking…
Mum using my Iphone camera was a challenge! She is such a technophobe!
She still uses the oldest Olympus Trip 35mm in the world!
I don’t think there’s actually a film in it. I think she just clicks away and makes us pose !
And after our tour of the lake, it was time for ice cream, Spaghetti Eis to be precise!
Had to be done. It’s the law….But rather than torment you with a photo of the biggest plate of ice cream available on the open market, let me dig up a recipe for you, so you can join in!!
