The picture above is the village of Lupburg, our home away from home while in Bavaria. Our house is on the right, below the onion dome church . The people are friendly, helpful and best of all, love to keep things "in order."


Tim deciphers the map to figure out where to go next...icons show us the types of trails they have: important sites, beautiful scenery, or restaurants along the way!

A favorite pastime of the Germans is walking.  I had heard about the volksmarches that many villages host during the summer but I was surprised at the sheer number of people who enjoy walking as sport.  Many carry trekking poles to give them a boost in heart rate. However, I've noticed quite a few who simply drag the poles behind them as they walk leisurely on one of the many trails around Bavaria.
Occasionally, I meet up with some Army friends to take part in this pastime.  More often, I take Lady for a walk around my neighborhood. We have enjoyed watching the changing scenery, as summer moves into fall.
Katie,  LeAnna and MonaLisa take a break during the walk

My traveling companion on most days...LADY

Which way do we go?
