Walking in a winter wonderland. Nürnberg Christkindlemarkt.
The glühwein experience. It gets better with each mug. See the progression of expressions below.
Coburg. Upper Franconia. Bavaria. Where we feasted on crispy goose breast and ox cheeks. But more importantly, we feasted together, stepping back into the chilly dusk just as the Christmas lights began to twinkle.
Bamberg. We came for Christmas markets. We will return for more beer. Always in the best of company.
"We were together. I forget the rest." - Walt Whitman.
Some people trade traveling somewhere for traveling to someone. I am blessed with the best: to travel somewhere, together.
What I saw when I turned around. Marienplatz, Munich.
He speaks my love language - quality time. Thank you to Angel for the best birthday trip to Germany!
And thanks, mom, for the hats.
A note on how we travel:
Non-revving is a bit like hitchhiking. Find someone flying in the same direction you want to go and ask if they have a seat. We are super grateful that Europe and South America are still run the old fashioned way, where the man in charge can choose to share his office at FL350 to the ones who show up early and with good manners.
Because non-revving = space available, we try not to travel during the holidays. We optimize the moments in between, and they are many. This year, we logged over 250,000 miles as passengers, plus a few more as pilots.
