Quick Catch Up
Bavarian woodpiles - preparing for winter
Richard and his wife - Bavarian farmers collecting early apples
Richard's hives - the honey from the Bavarian woods was unbelievably delicious.
This lady was wizzing along ... one handed!
Branka and Marius - friends we met on the Muhlfeld campsite

This gets our vote for the tackiest souvenier - a snip @ Euros 20!
My Euro 5.50 'Pinocalada' ice cream cup!
Apologies for the 9 week absence.
We returned to Wales at the beginning of September. We really didn't want to be back. We wanted to keep on travelling and found it difficult to acclimatise to life at home having so enjoyed being immersed in our work and all the intensity it generated.
This feeling of displacement and loss is still with us but we just have to work through it.
We left Hungary headed for Bavaria and a short holiday - going from one of the poorest places in Europe to one of the richest overnight was not an easy transition.
It was incredibly difficult to find a campsite on a lake it being high season and everywhere lakeside choc-a-bloc, like sardines in a can. Eventually, thanks to Suse and the internet, we found a spot in Hersching on the Ammersee that was just perfect. Only the local wind surfing school and a few discerning travellers seemed to ever hit on it - maybe because it had no hot showers! Luckily the weather was fab so we were able to keep clean and swim every single day. Ahhhhh!
Above are a few of our holiday snaps .... From now on we will try to blog weekly so please stay with us.
