Ice skating

Böblingen Oberensee

So beautiful out today. The lake froze over  and everyone was out. They were either skating, sledding, or just walking across.




We had a great time in Praque or should I say Praha. We went in November. It was pretty cold but we still enjoyed ourselves. We were able to stay in a apartment pretty close to the city center. We usually use to find places. It’s easier because we have a family of 5 and hotels don’t always work.

Astronomical Clock

It was so crowded even in the cold. Every hour there is a show. We always missed it:(. 

Old Town Square

We had to get Glühwein( hot wine). 

Charles Bridge

The Powder Tower

Praque Castle

Beautiful view of the city from Praque Castle.

We loved it here. I would love to go back and see more of the city maybe when it’s warmer.

Anniversary in Amsterdam 

So it was our 20th Anniversary last October. We decided we wanted to go to Amsterdam.

Here is the central train station. We were able to navigate to the train station from the airport. We didn’t need to rent a car. We took the bus everywhere. Our hotel was only a bus ride away.

Beautiful at night

Dutch pancakes

Boat tour


I wish I had pictures inside the ice bar. I think the temperature was -9. My phone died. Cool experience.

Cheese shop

Of course the red light district.

We enjoyed our time in Amsterdam. We would definitely go back and experience more. Maybe when it’s warmer.
