Germany (part 3)


By waddy


Here are some more pics from our trip to Germany. These are mainly from the town of Trier, Germany’s oldest city. Won’t bore you with too many comments…just hope you enjoy them.

It was Harvest Festival celebrations, so lots going on.

The wonderful Craftsman’s fountain.

The roof tops of the market square.

Lots of Market stalls.

Now just something pretty.

And you thought Global warming was a new thing? Look how high the river has reache in the past.

And this is mistletoe, couldn’t believe tones of this was cut down and just left, especially when you know how expensive this is come Christmas.

A new build..just loved this.

Hope you’re not totally glazed over. Promise that’s it!

Not glazed over at all - really enjoyed that market. It must have been hard not to stock up with all those lovely plants and flowers! Was there some sort of folky thing going on? It was nice to see the children in national costume.

Don't appologise. Your blogs are brilliant, and if anyone feels bored, it's because they themselves are miserable :o)
I enjoy them ...

Aww, thank you you two.

Steragram;- Yes, it was the 24th yearly celebrations for the Harvest Festival. It's a good job we were so far from home, otherwise I know I'd have been tempted to the many and all sooo healthy.

Hywel; That's nice of you to say...but many people find other peoples holiday pics boring. Glad you weren't lol.

Lovely pics , Waddy . Made me a bit "homesick ".
We lived in Germany for a long time , and they certainly know how to celebrate and enjoy their festivals , the markets overflow with good things and it was generally a good place to live .

The photo`s are lovely, I enjoyed all of your holiday blogs Waddy, I`ve seen many lovely places via others blogs on goy....

I too enjoy all the lovely pictures from holiday trips Waddy. Never bored.
I am too old now to go abroad again, enjoy collecting biographical travel books.
Thank you for sharing your holiday with us all.

Thanks everyone, I'm so glad you weren't bored!

Driad;- I agree in all respects. It's such a lovely, clean place, on the whole. The couple we were with, the gentleman is German, but his family were forced to flee towards the end of the war. He's now 74 and has suffered a stroke, so we were 'taking him back' perhaps for the last time. He was often in tears, bless him.

Lincslass;- It's often pictures of other peoples holidays which give me ideas where to go next. Particularly liked Yorkshire's last 'Holiday Blog'

Dianebulley;- I bet you're not you know...have you thought about such companies as Saga who specialise in holidays for the 'elderly'?

Saga are not the flavour of the month just now. Their car insurance subsidiary sold a block of ex-directory telephone numbers to the foreign phone canvassers. I had to pay £25 to block them. It was for one month. BT ignored this and charged me £25 for a second month. I refused to pay. Have had the debt collectors on to me for 2 years. They have given me a bad debt character to the Credit Reference people. I havent had anything on HP for 58 years ! Suggested to Saga that, as it was their fault they should send me the £50 to recompense me for what I had to pay, and get rid of the debt collectors. Result- silence !

That isn't good,Diane...Have you thought of contacting the Watchdog programme on TV? you may get some action...

18 Oct, 2012


I agree Bloomer, this is disgusting. We used Saga for car insurance 10yrs ago, but we still get loads of 'junk' mail even though we haven't used them since.
I'm sorry you've had a bad experience with them, Diane, why not try Bloomer's idea, after all what have you got to loose?
There are other companies who do the same holiday service. Don't let them put you off.
