Wahre Winterfreuden — True Winter Delights

What for some people can be stressing can be a dream for others.

If getting to your job every day equals getting through a mass amount of snow (and, eventually, passing transverse trucks) you may feel overwhelmed and stressed at times. Same holds true if you simply don’t like coldness.

For others, however, it can be very pleasing and relaxing walking through snow and experiencing true German winter — including its coldness it provides in 2009/2010.


Note: That (below) is not a piece of cake (click to enlarge)… ;-)

Hope you have a chance to enjoy the German winter this time.

If you’re still thinking about visiting Germany this winter, don’t delay… it’s incredible this time! Entire Germany is white these days providing us with countless of opportunities to do the things we like to do in pure white snow.

So get on that airplane and… off to Germanyyyyyyyyy!

      Sure it is, Brandon! We love America and Americans! You helped us survive WW II, and the US Army is still present throughout Germany (Heidelberg, Kaiserslautern, Schweinfurt, etc). We are pretty happy and incredibly grateful that you Americans were and are here. :-)
