After spending the first half of our vacation week in Italy we drove back with our friends to their home in Germany.

Just over a 6 hour drive from Milan, through the Switzerland Alps to Germany.

Our days in Germany were spent relaxing- sleeping in most mornings, late brunches and just hanging out.

We visited a few near by villages on afternoon.

 Together in Germany
 Beautiful scenery and sites from this old castle

 I love that in the midst of the forest, sits an old rune. A castle none the less

 We ate delicious cakes in this plaza one afternoon.
The weather was overcast but the company and cake were divine.
 This was by far my favorite place we ate. We went there our first night back in Germany and the food was amazing. Traditional German food that I will not even try to type.
 One happy girl- her favorite german wheat beer :)

 All throughout dinner in this tiny pub a piano man played show tunes from some of my favorite musicals.
 Here is Heidelberg Castle at night
 These fuzzy things are actually chestnuts and were interesting to say the least. If nothing else I can say I have had "Chestnuts roasting on an open fire "
 The castle by day

But all good things must come to an end and it is time to head home to our Sparkles

Until our next adventure
