Indeed, I was on vacation last week, far away in the beautiful German Alps ... as well as Munich, parts of Bavaria and the small sweet village of Mulfingan, from which hails part of the husband's heritage.
We covered quite a bit of ground in a short amount of time and, as you can see, the weather was most unusual! Although I had thrown a couple of sweaters into my suitcase at the last minute, just in case, I had no idea we'd find ourselves in a winter wonderland. The pictures above and below were taken in Oberammergau, on a day when the temperature was a balmy 30 degrees F. Wow!
Normally, I'm not a fan of snow - far from it - but in this setting it was altogether charming; rather like finding one's self in the middle of a Christmas card. I loved it while we were there ... but I'm hoping the snow stays in the alps where it belongs.
I have much to report in the way of several delicious meals. The food was extraordinary ... though my pictures may leave something to be desired. I'll be posting more about the trip in the coming days, so stay tuned.
As for the computer woes, well, I'm functioning. My old laptop is dead and I'm up and running on a shiny new Mac. I've been a PC person for so long, the change has been ... interesting. I'm still not sure how to deal with the photos and, clearly, I have much to learn. The important thing, however, is that we're back in business here in Divaland and I'm no longer off-line. Hooray!
I've missed you all and will look forward to catching up with you on your own blogs, as well as filling you in on my trip.
Thanks for sticking with me and we will return to normal here as soon as possible.
