Beer And Baubles


We are back from Munich after a delightful few days : days that were bookended between Christmas Markets and Bier Kellers. The weather wasn't perfect, but the sights of the city were.



We came back to a long list of outstanding Christmas jobs : so postings may be a little intermittent during the next few days. But when the list of jobs is too long, the cold wind too cold, and the endless Christmas card list is too endless - we shall always have Munich.

  6. So glad to have you back, and those photos are just super...especially the last one...it just brings such a picture of what I feel inside at Christmas time...and who knows why? It just speaks volumes of magic for me....I am sure you just had the best of time...especially going off with the love of your wife...how cool is that, to share the magic of life together! Hope you brought back some good treats for yourselves...the bakeries over there are just wonderful!

  8. So much more fun to do the real thing and not just the continental Christmas markets that arrive in our cities in December. BTW I like that I've become a blog tradition!

  9. There's not a whole lot of places I would like to go that demand plane flight, but Munich would be one of them (to go to). Great photos.
