we are in Germany ya'll

We have arrived! After a fairly uneventful flight, except for the hollering toddler a row ahead of us, we landed in Frankfurt on time with all of our luggage in tow. The drive from the airport to my brother's was neat....the autobahn is amazing. Talk about fast traffic. I don't think I will complain about Memphis traffic on the Nonconnah every again.

We freshened up and went out, all ten of us, for an authentic German meal at Ramsteiner Hof...excellent food. We had schnitzel and boy was it delicious. Scott had an amazing pork dish, more like medallions that were awesome. Then we had apple strudel for dessert...boy oh boy was it good. Had a wonderful red wine with dinner and an excellent cup of coffee after. Perfect place for our first German food experience.

The town where my brother lives is so picturesque...hard to explain. The houses are built to last 200 years and are close to the street. Everything is so clean and well just sparkles. Their house is three levels with a winding stair case...tile floors, but heated in some spots...really nice.

So far, the trip has been amazing! Hugs to all, Liz

What an exciting start to a wonderful visit with your brother and his family in Europe! You made me hungry just reading about that good food.
I kept up with the Babin travelers progress via the airline's website. They landed safely in Paris while I was asleep (middle of the night here. Jessie says their apartment is "super charming" so she's pleased with their arrangements for the 10-day visit. FaceBook entries from all 3 grandkids have kept me happy all day today. But Hey, you're missing our Extreme COLD. 13 degrees at early morning, only 27 now at 430 p.m.
