The Hills Are Alive…

Off to Germany and Austria for a few weeks! The Oktoberfest festival better brace itself because here we come 🙂 Actually, I’m not much of a beer drinker, but apparently they also have a wine tent. Oh Lord. Look out…Looking forward to this getaway that will include places like Heidelburg, Rothenburg, Baden Baden, Munich, Vienna, Salzburg, The Rhine and Bavaria. We’re hiking, taking bike tours, drinking, and visiting some baths in Baden Baden where most Germans hang out completely nude. (On second thought, pass me a pint. I may need it) Let’s also see how this vegan thing goes in a country that prides itself on the length and taste of their sausage (that’s what she said). Hell, I live in America where we pride ourselves on the length and taste of our hot dogs and trans fats. I should be ok, right? If I can find vegan options in the land of fast food, I’ll be able to find vegan in a country that isn’t afraid to say, “wiener schnitzel.”
In my mind, this trip has a fantasy-like quality that kinda resembles this:
In reality, it will probably look more like this:
“Bring it.” Or, as they say in the land of Normann Stadler, Faris Al-Sultan, Nina Kraft and other triathlon gods, “Bringen Sie.”

  1. I always thought Stadler-land had more of an “Anuddah flaht ti-ah” ring to it. 🙂

    Have fun! Never been to that part of the alps, but they were pretty breathtaking down in Switzerland.

  2. Have a wonderful trip. We spent 3 days in Cologne last spring. Had fun and my husband was in heaven. He is not a vegan and really, really, REALLY enjoyed his daily metre of sausage. Really.
