Am letzten Sonntag sind meine Mutter und ich nach Nürnberg gefahren. Dabei haben wir die im Ausbau befindliche A73 zwischen Nürnberg Kornburg und Nürnberg Hafen gesehen, die nächsten Herbst fertig gestellt wird. Wir haben auch schnell das gewünschte Parkhaus gefunden und sind zur Albrecht Dürer Stube gegangen, wo wir zu Mittag gegessen haben. Dabei habe ich ein fränkisches Schäufele bestellt, was die Spezialität des Hauses ist. Von dort sind wir zum nahe gelegenen Albrecht Dürer Haus, welches wir besichtigt haben. Es ist ein stattliches Gebäude mit Blick auf die Burg. Der Maler war ja ein reicher Bürger, hatte aber mit seiner anscheinend arrangierten Ehefrau, wie ich, keine Kinder. Sehr schade. Von diesem Museum sind wir dann noch zu einem mir bekannten Starbucks an der Pegnitz, welches ich meiner Mutter gezeigt habe. Wir sind dort aber nicht ... read more

Die letzte Woche war die 10. in Stuttgart und das darauf folgende Wochenende habe ich bei meiner Mutter im Raum Nürnberg verbracht. Am Samstag Abend sind wir dann in die Stadt selber gefahren und haben uns den Christkindlesmarkt angesehen. Ich habe gebrannte Mandeln und Punsch gekauft und es war sehr interessant. Danach habe ich meine Mutter noch in ein Irish Pub eingeladen.... read more

Christmas Market Day 2.... WOW, I wake up to someone rubbing my foot, it’s Kirsten. She smiles and says good morning sleepy head. I rollout of bed and get ready for another day of chasing after St Nicolaus. As I walk from my room to the kitchen, the aroma of German coffee is leading me all the way to an awesome German breakfast. Everyone is sitting around the table talking about yesterday and where we’re going and what we’re doing today. Me... I’m smiling knowing all I need to do is get my navigational orders keyed it into the MAPS and operate the Apple Car app. And you thought I was important, LOL. Today we will be visiting two Christmas Markets. The first one is Bamberg, our second is Nuremburg. Lots of driving today, however the ... read more

It is a gorgeous morning just as my weather app promised. I am very much looking forward to the day as I have lots of plans of things to see in Nürnberg. Firstly, I enjoy a fabulous breakfast in the third-floor breakfast room of the Hotel Central. They have a terrace up here with amazing views over the old city. I am meeting our local guide, Claudia, at 10.30 for a coffee in the Hauptmarkt - whilst she has a break with the group that she is guiding today. This is extremely kind of her and really helpful for me. I have plenty of time before our meeting and want to use this time to walk the city walls. The weather is just lovely - not too hot, but warm, sunny and great for walking. It ... read more

Tuesday morning I go down early for breakfast so I can get out again for another walk before I have to leave Prague. I want to take a look at the location of the hotels that we will use next year and also wish to see the astronomical clock in action. This means being there at 09.00 as this happens every hour on the hour during daylight. I enjoy an excellent breakfast in this small and delightful hotel. It has so many nice touches. I would definitely recommend this hotel (Jungmann) for any independent traveller to Prague. The location is fabulous. It is relatively inexpensive and it completely exceeded my expectations. Ask for Room 101. I see lots of the Old Town, retrace my steps over Charles Bridge and manage to catch the 09.00 performance at ... read more

Leaving Antwerp (after possibly defrauding the Belgian tram system but we'll never know) we headed through the rain to Heerlen and the best zoo in the world. Having managed to manhandle Seth past the gift shop (just) and awau from the people in front doing much weed, we took a tour through all the animals at record speed, Seth determined to see everything quicker than quick and get back to the promised land of the gift shop! At this zoo is a lovely central restsurant, eating area and play park. We've been twice before and both times Ash has been 100% fazed by the restaurant and how to order /buy food there. We will keep coming back until, on one glorious visit, we will all get what we wanted, Ash won't come out looking like he's ... read more

Bonjour à tous, Aujourd’hui j’ai fait un grand bond vers le sud, me voici donc en Bavière. Pratiquement 500 km tout droit. La première partie, la moitié environ totalement plate, plaine céréalière, sans grand intérêt. Je roule tranquille 130-160 dans le flot de la circulation qui est assez dense, c’est le week-end, et sans doute les départs en vacances. Tous des allemands, polonais, et autres qui dans quelques heures feront la queue dans le sud de la France. La seconde partie on arrive dans les petites montagnes de Bavière. Je commence à en avoir marre c’est long, ici aussi il y a beaucoup des zones de travaux, où ça a tendance à bouchonner. Le code tacite de conduite est assez bien respecté, file de droite 130kmh, centre 130 -160 et à gauche à partir de 170 ... read more

This morning is spent on the Main-Danube Canal. This constructed waterway will take us over the continental divide and back down to the Main River on the other side. Consequently, there are serious locks to traverse as the ship is lifted higher and higher. We arrive in Nuremberg around 1:30 pm. We have selected yet another walking tour of the city. The alternative is a tour focused on World War II, including a visit to the city's WWII documentation centre, but that will be for another time. Nuremberg has been an important cultural and political centre in Germany for centuries. It is the birthplace of Albrecht Dürer and the setting of Wagner's Die Meistersinger. German kings from the 14th century onward traditionally held their diets here, and for over 300 years it was the keeper of ... read more

Yesterday we drove from Vienna to Nuremberg, a total travel time of 4 hours. One of the thrills for me was to drive on the Autobahn and now that my new car has over 1200 km, I was able to let it run.....so to speak. This particular autobahn was a little curvy and the truck traffic along the Chez border was significant, so there I really did not experience a top end. But, I was easily able to reach 130 mph (210 kmph) with room to spare. The BMW design is so wind tested that the car simply hugs the ground at this speed. Not sure what the top end is, but the speedometer goes to 160. Upon arriving in Nuremberg, we checked into our hotel, Adina, which is a wonderful apartment type hotel with great ... read more
