Ahh... Deutschland!

Good Friends, Good Food - Well worth the hassle to get there!

Well it may have been a hassle to get there but it certainly was worth it in the long run. Jurgen and his family have visited us in the States several times and we meant to get over to see them sooner but of course, Covid got in the way. But this time we made it, albeit after a bit or trouble but that's behind us and as you'll see it was great to get together again.

Jurgen picked the perfect location for us to stay at. Alongside a quiet river, it was an old hunting lodge and very well maintained with beautiful gardens and a GREAT German breakfast that Jeff so loves.

We took a quick bike ride through a nice nature preserve, spent the evening tasting some refreshing gin and tonics at his friend's home. Very interesting - made with great tasting tonics in a variety of flavors. The next day we took a tour through Muenster - the bike capital of Germany!
With amazing churches, cobblestone streets and AGAIN - Great food. We ate outdoors at Kleiner Kiepenkerl and had some authentic Rouladen. And of course a good German Beer!

Jeff and Jurgen made some very good tasting bread that we had for lunch and then as a team effort we made a splendid dinner of filets with fresh asparagus. Delicious!!

Our trip was shortened due to the problems with flights before our arrival but we made the most of our time together and will try to catch up with them on another cruise or ski trip. Hopefully sooner rather than later! So rather than risk the flight fiasco again we took the very efficient train back to Frankfurt from Muenster to catch our flight back to the USA.
