Europe Trip

We are back from our trip! It feels like we were gone forever, almost a full month. I almost forgot what my house looked like and how much I like it! We had a great time in Germany and also visited Austria, Swizerland, northern Italy and Lichtenstein. Ethan and I spent the first two weeks with Tracey & Mark in Bad Homburg. Ethan had so much fun playing with the kids, Collin is only a year older than him and he would follow him everywhere. Ethan did so well on the plane both ways, he slept almost the entire time. He had a difficult time adjusting to the time change though and without his dad, once Anthony arrived he slept through the night without waking.
Anthony and I stayed the week in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, one of our favorite places in Germany. We visited Rothenburg, went on a tour of Vipiteno and Brixen Italy, took a 3 country tour including Austria, Switzerland and Lichtenstein, went on a tour of Berchtesgaden and the Eagles Nest, went up the Zugspitze, the tallest mountain in Germany, visited Dachau and Munich, Ulm, then took a Rhine River cruise in Rudesheim. The weather was absolutely beautiful- upper 60’s lower 70’s and the leaves down South were starting to change. The alpine passes we drove on through Austria and Switzerland had some of the most amazing views I’ve ever seen, the mountains there are so incredible. After living away from big mountains for so long you forget how awesome they are, it makes us want to move back to the Rockies. We had a really great time there. Anthony’s having a hard time driving slow on our freeways after driving 120mph all week long. I really miss the yogurt, pastries and ice cream. We’re going to have to find a gelato shop to satisfy the cravings. We had a great time, but it’s good to be back home and get back to ‘normal’ life again. Be sure to
