Take a Walk with Me

Over the past three years we have had the amazing privilege of travelling through Europe.
We are are blessed to have close family that has allowed us to enjoy many fantastic adventures together. I am here sharing some of our experiences. So please join me as I take you on a leisurely stroll sharing with you the true life experiences of Europe.

Ursula & Goekhan
Let me introduce you to one amazing family, my niece, Ursula and her husband, Goekhan and little Deniz who is almost three. Time has allowed us to enjoy the Bavarian culture and scenery.
You will find their mother, Anke featured in the Queen of Germany.
It has been the time of our life.

Deniz, the Love of all of our lives.
He captures our hearts.

Here lies there beautiful home in the German alps. They have shared their home and hospitality with us and continuously roll out the red carpet. We have more future plans for Europe in the coming years.
Wouldn't that make you have an interest in Europe?

  1. What a wonderful walk, Marg! Thank you for sharing!

    My mother and grandparents were German. According to their statements my grandmother's family came from the Black Forest area. My grandfather's father was from Hamburg.

    I've never been to Germany. Someday I'd like to search my ancestry and find out what towns their families were from before they immigrated to the US.

  2. Now that all looks so could be a Swiss village also! Thanks for sharing your experience via photos...I'll be back for the next chapter!

    What a wonderful journey you have taken us on - such beautiful countryside. I've never been to Germany, but your pictures and words share the beauty.

    This is a lovely morning read, Marg. (Much more relaxing than the morning paper!). Thanks for sharing your experiences, and I too, look forward to more chapters in this story. Dairymary

  5. Marg, your guest home looks just so warm and welcoming. What a gift to live with the locals and see the real country.
    The flowers are beautiful and so interesting that we enjoy the same flowers .. here .. .and there.

    What an absolutely gorgeous place you stayed at! The Bavarian scenery is beautiful, and hearing the cowbells must have been like a scene from "Heidi". Looking forward to more stories!

  7. That was fun walk! Thanks Marg.

    I love those chalets. My husband and I spent some time in Switzerland and lived in one. They are so picturesque with the balconies and shutters on the windows. The germaniums are perfect.

  8. Marg, I have to admit we're LAKERS fans here at Willow's Cottage. The Professor has been a fan since he was a little boy and those loyalties run deep, even deeper than loyalty to a homeplace when we were in Portland (but then we were never Blazer fans). So tonight it was time to sit on the other sofa in front of the TV and watch game 5 Det. vs Boston.

  9. And now Shaq is in Phoenix. And so are my son, dil, daughter, sil, and The New Boy!

    I was rooting for Det. tonight too, simply because I often feel sorry for the ones behind (except when they're playing the Lakers!).

    I'm glad Derek Fisher is back with the Lakers although I'm sorry about the reason behind the move.

  10. But what are the Lakers or the Suns compared to our own adventures in the real world of family and travel? It's fun but it's just a fantasy world.


Thanks for stopping by. Sometimes you might identify with what I've posted, and the next time you wonder where I'm coming from. I'd love to hear what you are thinking... Leaving a comment makes my day.
Drop by again.
