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'm taking a break from sharing France photos to give you a glimpse of this hilarious British advert, which I found via The Blue Hour, via 10 Engines. I love so much about this, especially how the race participants drink cuppas rather than water along the way. I got some additional laughs just thinking about how it would be if the German rapeseed farmers around these parts had a race: all participants dressed in black, wearing glasses, and grabbing Bitburger beers en route.
