Hofbrauhaus, Munich

Last June of this year, my family with my cousin and his in-laws, we went to the famous Hofbrauhaus in Munich, Germany. Too many people were there. Some are from Russia, Americans and locals. It was our first time and we had a good time. It was fun because people were singing, they even have live music band. We don't understand the words they're singing but the music was pleasant to our ears. Food is okay but service was a litlle bit slow, maybe because few waitress serving and they are a bit old and too many people. Hope you like it...

Salt Mine

I’m sharing to you our old photos that took place in Salt Mine Berchtesgaden, Germany. In Salt Mine, they have dressed clothes (shown what we worn) before you go inside the mines. Long train rides about 600meters while seating into a “Kaiser Franz Sinkwerk”. A funicular also known as funicular railways, a raft and down slides (slides are fun! whee…) and on photo shown, the wall is made of salt. One kid tried to lick the wall and for his surprised or shocked, it was salt! That’s why they call it Salt Mine…

Garmish, Germany (Zugspitze)

These photos I love to stared at! What a beautiful mountain with snows. On top of this mountain is where Zugspitze located at and it has Resort. This is where people skiing from beginner to expert. Not only skiing you can do on top of the mountain, also paragliding. Cable cart and train are the transportations they use to get there. We always go to the Garmish, Germany but we haven’t tried to go to the top of the mountain in Zugspitze. Because I have acrophobia (afraid of heights) and I don’t know how to ski. Just taking pictures and looking at it, that’s all I can do. One day, hopefully I will reach that mountain (cross my finger) and I will take a lot of pictures for proof (he he…)

Have A Nice Day to y’all…..

Rothenburg, Germany

This photo was unforgettable experience for me. Because it was our first time to visit the area and I got sick before we got to the place. I’ve been vomiting and I have terrible headache. When it was time to leave Rothenburg, I felt a little bit better. I didn’t enjoy our visits there because of my illness and we didn’t have a chance to see all the places. Rothenberg is the place for shopping for Christmas. You can see all kinds or types of different things to see, from alcohol to stuff toys, or just to buy for souvenirs. We are planning to see again last summer but no time because everyone is busy for their own vacations. I want to go back in Rothenberg before we go back home in Texas. I know I will….
Have A Nice Day to y'all.....

Ramstein fest

These photos were taken last Sunday (Sept.20). In Ramstein village, there is fest going on and we live in this area. The fest started last Saturday and it ended today (Sept. 23). There are some few rides and some food booths. It’s not much people went there because they have no idea that there is event going on in Ramstein. We found it the day we went there and by reading it in our KA newspaper. It was late already and we didn’t spend long time there because it’s school day the next day. We just ate my daughter’s favorite “crepes” and “bratwurst” (the German foods.) After we ate, we looked around then we went home.
It wasn’t that bad!

Have a Nice Day to y’all……

Berchtesgaden, Germnay

Here's our old picture from Eagle's Nest in Berchtesgaden, Germany. It was awesome views!!!
History: Hitler's "Eagle's Nest" was designed and built for Adolf Hilter's 50th Birthday by his personal secretary and Head of the Nazi Party Chancellery Martin Bormann. The monument is called "Kehlsteinhaus" in German because of it was originally intended to be a "Teahouse" for the head of the Third Reich. This mountain-top hideaway played a prominent role as the main unit objective in HBO's critically acclaimed mini-series "Band of Brothers."

The allied bombing and battles of World War II left the building intact and today the Eagle's Nest remains in its original state. In the years after the war, the Eagle's Nest and the surrounding area of Berchtesgaden remained a part of US Armed Forces property in southeastern Germany. The US military set up a recreation center where servicemembers could hike in the summer and ski in the winter. The US military returned the area to Germany in the 1990s.At that time, the German government demolished the American General Walker Hotel at Obersalzberg, to make way for the existing bus depot that serves the Eagle's Nest.
Thanks for the info from Hope you enjoy it...

Venice, Italy

Venice is a nice place for shopping with name brand like Louis Vuitton, Versace, Coach and more. The "Grand Canals" is the most important canal in Venice, Italy. The Public transportaion is provided by water buses or private taxis but many tourists visit it by gondolas. The St Mark's Basilica or they call it Basilica di San Marco in Italian is the most famous of the many churches of Venice and one of the best examples of Byzantine architecture in the world.
Located just off the Grand Canal, the gleaming basilica dominates Piazza San Marco (St. Mark's Square) and adjoins the Doge's Palace. San Marco is a cathedral has been the seat of the Archbishop of Venice since 1807. They have lots of souvenirs to buy. Many restaurants to go to for eat, relax, or just to talk. Taking pictures what I love to do.

Many tourists heading for the Romantic Road from here, 25,000 students enjoy the lively atmosphere of that town, which is beautifully embedded in the valley of the Main River, surrounded by wine-covered hills.
A famous landmark of Wurzburg Germany is the mighty fortress Festung Marienberg, from where you get a nice view over the famous sights of Wurzburg and the pilgrimage church Käppele, also an idyllic spot on a hill above the town of Wurzburg Germany. You can explored on by foot - look at the Wurzburg market square and see the late-Gothic Church of St. Mary Another highlight is the four towered Wurzburg Cathedral St.Kilian, which is one of the largest Romanesque churches in Germany and one of the great attractions of Wurzburg in Germany.
They have different kinds of festivals they’re celebrating. Like the Wurzburg wine festival that’s been going on throughout the years. They also have Mozart Festival, Bach Festival and the Europe’s largest African Cultural Festival and Jazz Festivals.

Bad Durkheim, Germany

Hi! Everyone…I was sooo exhausted last Saturday and Sunday because we went to the wine fest. The fest started last Friday thru the 16th of September in Bad Durkheim. Germany. It was raining when we got there but later afternoon, the rain stops! They have carnival rides for kids and adults. We even rode one of their rides but the rests are scary for me to ride because I am afraid of heights! They also have different food booths and we tried their delicious bratwurst (the best sausage I’ve ever ate!). Lots of games and we won few stuff toys for my daughter. And of course, the WINES!!! You can see all kinds of wines in Bad Durkheim. Americans love to visit Bad Durkheim because of their finest and affordable wine. They said that the wine fest was the biggest and longest fest here in Germany. I think there’s a celebrity host that visited the fest because people were so excited and there’s some polizei (police). We haven’t had a chance to see that celebrity because it was too crowded. Plus, even if we see that person, we wouldn’t know who it was coz it’s a German celebrity. Guess what??? Not a single of them was screaming but they were excited to take pictures and videos. We had a great and wonderful weekend!!! How about you???

Have A Nice Day….

Carnival rides

Brussels is the capital of Belgium and the administrative centre of the European Union. This has earned the city the title of the Capital of Europe. Brussels has been given its character by the coexistence of French and Flemish culture, and it is nowadays home to nationalities around the world, adding a cosmopolitan flavour to its atmosphere. The vibrant atmosphere of Brussels is further enhanced by picturesque medieval streets, lively squares, beautiful boulevards, impressive monuments, spacious parks, cosy cafés, interesting restaurants and an active cultural life.Thanks for the info from my favorite sites:

Salzburg, Austria

Dreaming spires, green hills and romantic gardens – the city's attractions are loved by millions of visitors from all over the World starving for Salzburg sightseeing. With a tourist-per-capita ratio higher than Venice or Florence, the city is among the busiest places of Europe all year round. This is also the place where the "sounds of music" located sung by Julie Andrews.
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was born 27 January 1756 in Salzburg, Austria. He showed musical gifts at a very early age, composing when he was five and when he was six playing before the Bavarian elector and the Austrian empress. He's a God's given genius!

Yonina tulip

This tulip is one of my favorite. It's Yonina tulip. Did you know what is Yonina means? It's a girl's name and "dove". I love this tulip because it's simple and beautiful. I don't have it yet because every time I go to the germans store, they always run out. I guess it's so popular, that they always run out all the time. If someone knows where to buy this kind of tulips, please help me??? I appreciated!

This was taken just last April this year. It's a tulips season in Amsterdam, Holland! Do you like flowers? I do, I planted some tulips in our front yard and orchids inside my house. I even bought some roses to put it in our backyard. It's really nice to see the flowers bloom during spring or summer.
