I had my first experience with Carnival traveling to Köln. The first pictures are from the Mariensaule view statue in Trier.

Snow in Trier

Snow is not unusual in Trier, but it is also not common. Here I hiked around town to enjoy the last bit of winter snow in January.But first pictures from when I went to a wine tasting in some underground roman bath ruins.

I've Been Busy

 Okay. In early December I planned a trip for me and my friends out to Burg Eltz. The weather was typical for our region...cold and cloudy. However this resulted in an immensely joyful hike through forest to see a castle shrouded in fog. I will be going back in Spring when the castle is open to visitors.
