These unusual pictures of Germany bring back such wonderful memories of the wonderful people and places I've visited, including some of the foods I've enjoyed along the way.
Not quite sure what this is for. A bench? A bed? A hitching post?
Gutters throughout the inner city. A great place to play after the rain.
Blowing giant bubbles in front of Freiburg Cathedral.
Traditional street food: sausage on a bun!
Plum cake with cappuccino.
Potato salad with wieners and hot German mustard.
My hubby and I at Insel Mainau horticultural display.
Waterfall staircase in the midst of the gardens.
Bug house created out of wood and stone.
Dahlias were being judged -- hundreds of varieties.
Stately cedars lining a staircase to the upper gardens.
Prickly-trunked tree in their outdoor tropical garden display.
Beautiful flowerbeds line the coastal walkways.
Floral peacock stands over 10 feet high.
Miles of gardens to walk and photograph. Paradise!
Many varieties of tropical plants grow in this 'tropical' climate.
I've been asked to share my pictures of Germany, so I'm going to be adding more and more as I go through my 'thousands' of photos and do some major editing. Keep coming back here as I get a chance to post them.
I've only been traveling to Germany for the past six years, but have managed to travel through most regions in that time. Although I was born in Germany, my parents immigrated to Canada in 1953 when I was just a toddler.
My only memories are ones that were kept alive by my parents through pictures. Now, that I've had a chance to actually see Germany myself, I can understand their longing to return.
Sometimes it's the food. Other times it's just being surrounded by others who speak the same language, Mostly, though, it's being able to visit with family and friends.
Check out this page for a map of Germany. You'll see that Germany is divided into sixteen states or 'Länder' which also include several city-states.
As I go through my photos, I'll be able to post some from each region. As always, I try to focus on the foods, in this case, the regional foods. I certainly love the challenge when I'm in Germany to check out the various eating establishments. I just need to remember to get out the camera before diving into the food :)

Pop right over to my private Facebook group, the Kaffeeklatschers. You'll find thousands of German foodies, all eager to help and to talk about all things German, especially these yummy foods.
I pop in all the time as well, to chat and to answer questions.
Meet with us around Oma's table, pull up a chair, grab a coffee and a piece of Apfelstrudel, and enjoy the visit.

Oma's Christmas Stollen is the BEST. Why? Because it's always moist, has a wonderful flavor, and is super quick to make. And, I put Marzipan in it!!!

These German gingerbread cookies, or Lebkuchen, are such a traditional cookie to have for Christmas. They're very easy to make, there's no reason to buy them.
