WEEKLY WINNERS


More participants here at Sarcastic Mom Weekly winners

On our way from Belgium to Italy we had to go through Germany and stopped half way in a small town (or village) before Munich. We use the guide "Links und rechts der Authobahn" which means, "left and right from the Highway". There you find all hotels not far away from the highway which are very nice and a lot cheaper then the once on the highway.



We landed up in the Hotel Crab (or cancer that's my astrological sign). It was a typical bavarian little town.



In the middle of the market place stood this May tree


Here you can see it better



I found this fountain quite original



and this tree very amusing in his net



There was a very old abandonned guesthaus "Zur alten Post" (to the old post)



and a little church


with a very special roof !


Besides the church was the cimitary


and a little river crossed the town



The kind of houses you could see

The food was excellent, I had a fresh trout. The next day then we continued our way to Italy.

Nice post and pictures Gattina. That Italian food looks wonderful, and you put on no weight. You must have been a good girl.I would like some of that tomato and cheese platter.

Junebug said...

Gattina, those are lovely pictures. How does trout taste? I have never had it. Is it like halibut or cod or any white fish?

Puss-in-Boots said...

I'm starting to get itchy feet looking at all your photos, Gattina. One day, one day...

That little hotel is so cute...Hotel Crab...that's a different name.

Keep the photos and travelogue coming, it's fascinating.

I LOVE that fountain. And I love the 'old world' of Germany and all over Europe. I wish we had the same here....but it's always 'tear down the old' and replace with the new. In most cases.

The net on the tree, is that because it's a fruit tree or something to keep the birds off? Maybe? Just a guess.

Maribeth said...

You know that net was to keep the birds from eating the lovely cherries! We have to do the same thing here! But it sure does look funny!

Jeanette said...

Gday Gattina, Ohh I just love all your photo's of Germany .
And you would never guess I went out to dinner and had whole grilled trout was served with its head still on.. was so yummy, but then i love most seafoods..

Irishcoda said...

I'm intrigued by the tree in the net and wonder what it's for! The pictures are gorgeous and I'm also wondering about the taste of trout, never had it before either. And do you still have to wear a sweater? We need to switch climates, I want the sweater, lol!

claudie said...

Good time in Bavaria, you had! I had never seen trees in a net!
Sounds you had still a good lunch! Oh! I watch a good bier, here! Could I taste it?

Charlotte said...

Great post. Wish I was there. Would love that fish, one of my favorite foods. Thanks for sharing the pictures.

Jeanette said...

Love the photo of you at the end! Look at that ginormous pilsner!!

Maria said...

Hallo Gattina,
thanks for visiting my blog!
I like your post showing you on your way to Italy in a little bavarian town. Looks very familiar to me because I live in Wien!
I also love trout very much, especially when you get it fresh from the rivers!
Will you post your travel to Italy?
Regards, Maria
