New for old!

It is raining on our day of departure. This makes it easier to leave.

Not much to take pictures of – that’s why I want to show the changes of the last years:

Our stay is finished for this time. Once again we had a great time here in the Allgäu!

Winter Scenery

In the morning we are surrounded by a beautiful snow covered winter scenery with a little bit of blue sky.

The gorgeous view yesterday – usually that’s not good sign according to the weather! Today we have heavy snow fall. We decide for a walk down to the village of Fischen about 8km and deeper in altitude. Down there the white stuff falling out of the sky is very wet!




Being back it is still snowing and way more than the promised 6 cm (by our host) cover the landscape.



A Special Day!

The birthday boy ordered sunshine for today.




The sun is out but after finishing breakfast and bubbly it is gone! But walking in the snow is also fun without sun.


For small lunch we find a nice restaurant. We have to hurry to be back for the birthday coffee in the afternoon.



There is only a short break before our rich evening meal. Way to much eating today!

As a treat from the birthday boy there is also Sex-on-the-Beach and Williams! After that we are so filled up – we have to walk more tomorrow!

Crossing the Alpes

For the three Jos – Jochen,Johanna and Jonas – vacation time is over, school and work are waiting!

As retired persons we can add an additional week. We cross the Alpes to the western part of German Alpes. Unfortunately it gets more and more clouded. Our destination is Ofterschwang/Allgäu. Since several years we spend a week in winter here with friends. In the morning we have 10cm of new fallen snow!


It became a tradition to be greeted with a schnaps!


Kitzsteinhorn 3029m

On our last day we take the cable car high ab to the Kitzsteinhorn. The view is breathtaking!IMG_1083



And the snow: It is such a difference between “real” snow and the artifical snow we had the last days! Even little Jonas noticed the better skiing. He has learned a lot in the last few days and gained a lot of self confidence!
