Dresden

Dresden panorama

On the first weekend in April, Silke and I took a trip to this beautiful city on the river Elbe. This place has been burned down twice, bombed to rubble, and flooded many times, but has always been rebuilt. The big flood of 2001 endangered ruining many cultural objects and artwork, but the people managed to save everything and bounce back from it once again. There are so many impressive structures in such a geographically small area that you can spend the whole day just walking around and being amazed. To see the whole city, I would recommend taking one of the many guided tour buses which you can jump on and off of at any stop along the way. Just take the next one when you’re ready, the ticket is good for a whole day. More pics in „travels“…..

switzerland, part II

After visiting the Jungfrau region in 2009, we were so impressed that we had to come back. This region offers so many opportunities and excursions, that we decided to spend another 5 days exploring it. Luckily we hit a window of perfect weather on the first three days, enabling us to go up on the highest trams and trains with good views of the impressive landscape.

new pics from 9 days in Mallorca…..

yes, we jetted over to beautiful and sunny Mallorca for nine days of pool, beach,  relaxing, endless sunshine  and great food. I think we will be back for a visit again in the future….this place is really nice !!

We stayed in the very comfortable „Club Colonia Sant Jordi“ hotel complex in the quaint seaside village of Colonia Sant Jordi, located on the southeastern corner of  the island. The beautiful 6 km long beach of „es Trenc“ is close by and really worth visiting. Other gorgeous land and seascapes are within minutes by bus or car, making this place a great base for exploring this interesting and versatile island.
