We’re an American family living just outside of Bitburg, in the scenic but often-damp Eifel countryside of far-western Germany. We got the crazy notion to buy a haus here, and even though it’s not the renovated barn/carriage house/crumbling country manor of our dreams, it’s pretty cool—when the plumbing and heating are working properly. When we aren’t traveling, we live a pretty quiet life. Stop by for frequent doses of Gemütlichkeit, which just basically means a sense of coziness and intimacy--and an unhurried pace to counter the frenetic nature of modern life. Doctor's orders! Oh, and a special hello to anyone visiting from the Spangdahlem Air Base community!
See, I told you I'd post some Germany pics! These are from Bernkastel-Kues, an adorable, touristy town on the Mosel River, about 45 minutes from our house. It's a very popular place to be when the weather is nice or when it's September--wine-festival time. It's also quite nice in December.
We spent a lovely afternoon with my parents here two weekends ago. And yes, we did have some delicious crepes.
