After touring around the town, we climbed up the "hill" to the Hohenklingen Castle. Great views of the city and Rhine River! On the way back down we walked through the vineyards - the grapes looked so good - but I thought the wine fairies were going to come out and get us after Nathan tried to pick some:) And NObody wants the fate of having bad wine (or worse - really bad wine hangovers) for the rest of their lives so the grape vines went unharmed - promise!
I love this photo - It looks like someone just photoshopped me in!:) But I was there - promise!
Don't do it!
The one we went to was near the Bodensee. It was a really beautiful ride and I glad we picked this area (although I'm sure I would have felt that way about all of them)!
This area is a large fruit growing region in Switzerland so some of the apple orchards were passing out free apples - soooo good! And the Slow Up partners (Rivella and Ramseier) were also passing out samples along the way - I have to say the Ramseier Cactus/Apple Juice drink was amazing!!!! I'm definitely going to have to find this at the grocery store!
Sweet - is that beer!!! Apple Juice? Okay- I'll still take it:)
Said FIVE YEAR OLD (and his little brother) kicking my ass - I said I did it - not that I was fast:)
We saw tons of bikes and roller bladers but here were a few things I had never seen before!
Look at the wheels - they were only on the outside of the skate so I'm not sure how easy it was to stand up .....
I don't remember what they called these but people were running in them along the course!
This is a two person bike thing but you can't really tell from this photo
Now this is what I'm talkin' about!
Tomorrow we are off to Italy for 10 days with Nathan's Mom and Stepdad! I am so excited! Hopefully I will get to write some while we are away, but if not - look for a REALLY LOOOOOOOOONG post around the 14th!:)
