A trip to Germany

We just got back from a family holiday in Germany, spending time with my husband's family in Munich. We were gone ten days, which was a good length of time, and we were blessed with fabulous weather, good meals, and some precious visits with aunts, uncles, and cousins. My brother Kevin and his wife Jenny joined us for part of their two-week European jaunt, which made our trip extra fun.

Some highlights:

Visit to Schloss Nymphenburg in Munich

Oliver at Documentation Center Museum on former Nazi Party Rally Grounds in Nuremburg
Yarn kiosk at the local grocery store--they even had sock yarn!

Scott and Oliver 2016 at Andechs Monastery

Compare with visit to Andechs in September 2007. Time flies!

Steckerlfisch, a biergarten delight

It was quiet visit, since we were mostly there to visit family rather than do tourist-y things, although as you can see from the photos, we managed to squeeze in a few museums and castles. I also did a bit of yarn shopping, which I'll talk about in another post.

You'll notice that I made a switch from WordPress to Blogger. I was spending more than I wanted through my hosting company, and when they wouldn't negotiate a lower price with me, I decided to move my sites. Since Hail Britannia is a hobby blog for me, I thought Blogger would be a good platform. I was able to transfer most of my old blog posts over, but it will take some time for me to replace the photos that didn't make the transfer.
