ARCHITECTURE:

I had the opportunity to return to my birthplace in Germany last fall.  It’s an ancient town, dating back to Roman times and still has medieval walls surrounding it.  Best of all, the old buildings have been wonderfully preserved.  Such amazing architecture!

  5. The Town Hall was my favourite. You know one of the reasons I love Adelaide is because it still has a lot of the old buildings still standing. Alas over time they seem to be coming down and I find that to be a tragedy. They just have so much more character than some of those new fan dangle buildings.

  9. Hi Debbie,

    Thanks for sharing the pictures. I would love to live in small, quaint town like this. The city so busy and too fast-paced for me. Happy Friday! Have a great weekend!

  12. How I wish I could have gone to Germany while my dad was still alive. I would have loved to have seen and touched my heritage. Thank you for these wonderful pictures as I imagined what that would have been like to be there with him.
