Many thanks for all your lovely coments dear readers. We are enjoying meeting so many friendly people on our travels and especially appreciate how they have helped us when our German and other people's English, have lead to challenges with being understood. Unfortunately today our planned meeting with a lovely German FB friend and her family, didn't work out due to the change in train schedule of today's public holiday. That was disappointing but there will always be hurdles when traveling and we hope to meet again on anoither trip. Margaret, don't worry about England's scenery being disappointing after the Alps, as we will really enjoy the history, castles and green fields after our dry climate. Also Marijke I only have a small suitcase so I've been very careful not to buy souvenirs apart from a few small pieces of fabric for my two current projects using half inch hexagons. It's surprising how much stitching I can do while on the train and still see the scenery.
We're currently in Grimma, in East Germany, to visit Colditz Castle tomnorrow morning and then off to Berlin for a few days.
Hugs, Jan Mac
