And now...off to see the Alps

Germany was HOT... and we made a rookie error: We walked all over Mannheim with our backpacks instead of checking them at the station.
Heidelberg was wonderful, and today Kate and I bought Swiss embroidered lace by the bagful. Creativity abounds in our imagination. I'm taking pictures, and can't wait to share all the "doings." You'll have to be patient, as I don't want to tell the story without the pictures! Kate has posted some pictures on her blog though.
This is our last night in St. Gallen. Tomorrow we will take the Glacier Express across the Swiss Alps, an 8 hr train ride. I'm looking forward to relaxing as the scenery streams by; the last few days I have been racing on foot towards all the wonderful things to see.
I don't think I've missed much, but I wouldn't' mind coming back.
Like in January, when it is cooler!

I won't be blogging again until I return home next Thursday.
Aufwiedersein!

Your traipsing about the Alps makes me long for a vacation! Heat? I never really envisioned Germany to get that hot in May!? BUT you, being from Texas 'n all, should be used to that, ain't tha' right? (horrible at accents! sorry but I just can't resist trying!). Enjoy the remainder of your adventure! (and am anxiously looking forward to seeing evidence of it in the form of pictures!)
