Thanks so much for letting us stay in your wonderful house. We had a great time. You really are lucky to live in such a beautiful area.
Our exchange with Martin and Renate was a great success. Their house and garden are lovely and they had even thought to leave us ingredients for a meal on the evening we arrived. Bavaria has much more to offer than we had realised. We visited King Ludwig's castles, which make Disney's efforts look like the copies they are. The Alpine landscapes are stunning and we particularly enjoyed the Volksfest in Ebersberg, the town's summer celebration. In hot weather it's a 3-minute walk to the Klostersee for sunbathing and swimming in the lake. And there's the best beer in the world and great food everywhere, we liked it most in the forest restaurants.
