It's finally starting to feel like spring over here. Actually, it feels more like summer than spring. It seems that we've skipped spring altogether this year. We took advantage of the gorgeous weather today and took a walk through the German countryside. There were fields of wildflowers and rolling hills on all sides. We came across a number of cows lazing about in the sun, and a little glen dubbed "Hexenwald", which roughly translates to "witches' forest". There was a tiny cottage and a dried-up well where two recently transformed frog princes were perched.
Our current home is comfortable, warm and just the right amount of rustic. We get to hear a herd of cattle walk by twice a day, bells clanging. We also have a few pet cats wandering about outside. There are supposedly three or four of them, but we've only seen two. The friendliest of these is named Emma, and she's made her way inside a number of times, so she and I have bonded over the time spent carrying her to the door.
We tried more German sausages, and found that we much preferred them to the weisswurst we'd had earlier. That being said, we're fairly certain that we botched the cooking and eating process. Apparently there's a fairly specific way of doing both. (website) The reason we tried them in the first place was actually because of a blog post that I saw awhile ago (Here's a link to the main blog. I recommend you read some of her travel articles. You may even recognise some of these places from our earlier blog posts.). We're at 5/7 so far.
