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!
I hesitate to say that something is "gypsy" style--it just somehow seems a bit "un-p.c."--but in this issue of the new German mag "We Love Living," that's the exact term used for this feature. I found this spread irresistible and right up my alley; I'd love to have an outdoor party like this. It's eccentric, boho, set in the country, and--apparently--based around gorgeous textiles and delicious food! Enjoy the photos (click to make them larger). Sorry that a couple of them are more than a bit blurry; I just noticed!
Go to www.asphalt-tango-shop.de for some real gypsy music. Now, are you ready for a party?
