TT #71

Thirteen Vacation Photos
Part 2b: Bayern: Garmisch & the Eibsee

In the beginning of August, we took a week-long trip to Bavaria with all three kids and Carl's mom. Unlike our usual habit, we did touristy things every day, which made Dagny very happy. Last week's TT, if you missed it, was about the castles we saw on the trip.
outside the cabin at Vacation Village. I don't remember why Dagny's making such an evil face.

Carl, Camden, & Curran, ditto.

The town is actually called Garmisch-Partenkirchen. The Eibsee is the lake at the foot of the Zugspitze. We'd planned on going up to the Zugspitze until we saw the prices: 230 euro just for the cable car ride for all of us, and the peak had been cloudy all week. So we had fun on the lake, and then went up the Kreuzeckbahn, which I'll show you next week.

Oh these are beautiful pictures!!! Wish I were there . . . ;) Thanks for sharing, Darla.
Wonderful photos. They make me wish I had taken the chance to explore Europe more when I lived across the pond.
Awesome pics! Happy T13!
SO gorgeous! I wish I'd been there -- can I come next time? I travel well... usually. Sort of.

Happy TT, Darla!
One more place I'm going to have to add to my Must Visit list. Great pictures. :)
So beautiful and how fun to have Chinese food in Bavaria! Was it any good??

Happy TT!
Wow, more great photos!
Love the pictures. I especially liked number 11.
The thing I like most about the German and Austrian cities I've studied (but have yet to visit) are the pastel colored buildings. Love them. And that's the classiest McDonald's I've ever seen :)
What great pics...it looks like you had a blast:) Happy TT and thanks for stopping by.
Susan, of course you can come--you will bring Trevor, right? ;)

Claudia, as far as I remember, it was pretty good. I'm fonder of our Thai-Vietnamese restaurant here in Rheinland-Pfalz, though.

Angela, yep--more photos. There are 3 or 4 weeks more of them.

Carrie, AND the McDonald's serves beer, too!
Darla - WOW I love seeing all the pictures from Bavaria! The places is really beautiful out there. So nice to see your family and having a good times.

Hey aren't you a pro, now that you have learn to load pictures online?! *grin* You are getting the hang of it, I'm sure :) Happy Thursday Thirteen!
Great pics. At this very moment I wish I was enjoying #11 or 12!
Oh my! What wonderful photos. Looks like the family had great fun.
Thanks for the visit.
Lovely pics, Darla! I wish I'm able to visit one day!
Beautiful family, you proud mama!
#5 the yellow Garmisch building is gorgeous. The view from the bridge is stunning. #11 'view on the Eibsee' is very tranquil. Must have been a great trip.
