Ein Stück kuchen, bitte!

Autumn in the Black Forest is pretty special, especially when sharing it with faaaamily. My German is seriously lacking but the brother introduced me to Duolingo and now I am hooked. Our trip included a ride on Europe's steepest funicular railway, in Baden-Baden, up the Merkur. The view from the top is spectacular, especially when you're above the clouds and all that can be seen is the odd steeple on a tall hill, till the fog clears.

Back in the 'burgh, I took my boys round the Christmas Market to soak up the atmosphere, and we found ourselves as tourists in our own town when we got on a City Tour bus. Well, really it was as a result of badgering from a very persistent 7-year-old who just wanted a ride on a bus with no roof. It's amazing you can live in a place for so long and yet have so much to learn!
