Germany

Train travel from Zurich to Frankfurt with a stop in Stuttgart.

Winter has set in. No wonder German’s crave sunshine. It’s cold and dreary. Thank goodness the countryside is so charming and picturesque.

Snow quietly blanketed the green grass and fall leaves – it altered our plans just a bit. We love winter, but started out with summer clothes. Layering has it’s limits.

Perhaps it’s time to fly west…

Berlin

Street ArtReliable Ryanair from Riga, Latvia to Berlin, Germany – a quick 1 hour 40 minute no-frill flight. Bill said it felt like a university outing because everyone was so young.

After the past week or so in winter fall was back in full force – greens, yellows, oranges and reds glistened outside the airplane’s window.  Teasing us with hopes of warmer weather.

We were greeted by a balmy 34 degrees.

I was anxious to get to Berlin, the capital city of the Cold War – Checkpoint Charlie, Brandenburg Gate, the Wall and the art/graffiti subculture pervasive on the East side.

When I hear “Berlin” – I hear Reagan, as if it was yesterday, saying “Gorbachov – tear down this wall” – I see, graffiti.

Bill thinks it has the most diverse new architecture of any world capital.
