Trips down memory lane

Another glorious day with a clear blue sky, brilliant sunshine and sharp frost on the meadows for a drive into the Taunus mountains and to Idstein – a beautiful old market town where I once (in a former life) owned a lovely half-timber (fachwerk) house.

… and here is Kreuzgasse 42 with attached barn.

From there we traversed the country side with the goal of arriving in Fulda in time for lunch. Unfortunately, “MathildaII” (the car’s built-in gps system) had different routing for us! Anyway, we arrived in time for a beer at the craft brew Wiesenmuhle (restaurant closed) and onward for afternoon tea or coffee and delicious cake at a Konditorei very near the Fulda Dom. We sat at a table with a similarly aged lady who spoke impeccable english and enjoyed a lengthy conversation about politics!! Hmmm!

We managed a quick visit to St. Michael’s church, from 1194; spectacularly simple in design – quite beautiful.

Leaving Fulda, we were rewarded with the most dazzling sunset – rivaling those in Arizona! – which lasted for a good 45 minutes.

Dinner at traditional restaurant in Rambach, where Dennis had his long-awaited Zigeuner Schnitzel! and then home to some Lebkuchen!!!
