This summer has been an exciting and fun-filled summer with all it’s rewards. In the coming days we will be sharing with you some of the highlights of our last days of summer 2011
Although the weather hasn’t been as good as it was last year, the people we’ve had around us have made up for it.
I’ve had 2 milestones this summer, one is that i’m finally a mum & the other is sharing my “mum-hood” moments with my mum & the rest of my family here in Germany.
Her presence meant so much to Thomas & I that we decided to have a mini tour of a few cities in Germany.
The last time she was here was 1999, a ‘Germany-tour-refresher’ is definitely what the doctor ordered.
First on our list was "Bad Dürkheim".This is a small spa city which is famous for its big wine barrel that was turned into a restaurant .

A visit to this city is always worth your while, you will then understand why so many people prefer to retire in a spa city.

Back in Kaiserslautern we decided to visit the Dinosaur Park.
What a lovely surprise when we got there...we found an ongoing exhibition about african fine arts.
