We’re Here!

June 16, 2009

Long flight, beautiful train ride, wonderful host … we’re in the MOST beautiful home in Mittengen, Westphalia, Germany.  We haven’t yet gotten the code for the wireless internet, so I cannot upload the photos we’ve taken yet.

The Landrover that they said we could use is a 1970s model that is quite a collectible. I drove it yesterday and it was an adventure. However, it seats two in front and the balance of the seating is in a covered area. That helped us to decide to rent a car for touring.  Other issues had given us pause as well:  1) such an old vehicle, what about break-down? 2) it isn’t very comfortable, 3) with no power stearing or power brakes, it takes some strength and determination to drive.

So, we rented a little Peugeot.
