Gutedel Tag – The Event I

  They really did it. They shut the highway down for 14 kilometres for a giant wine tasting, Gutedel Tag (Gutedel Day). It was a great party. Turns out the shuttle buses didn’t start running until 6 p.m., by which time I was home, so I didn’t get to see it all. Sulzburg’s location, at […]

They Are Doing What!?

Somehow I missed this event last year. And when I saw the poster on a light post earlier this week I was flabbergasted. I know this is a big wine producing area. And I know that the specialty wine exclusive to this part of Germany is a white wine called Gutedel. So it makes sense […]

Longing For Home

One of the first things I did upon arrival in Germany last fall was empty my wallet. The Canadian cash was put away the day we arrived; the credit cards once I had German ones. The day I return to Canada I will put my Canadian money back in the wallet, retaining a few Euros, […]

Car Show – V

Time to wrap up our car series from this year’s edition of the Mullheim city festival. You can probably tell from the posts of the past few days that I enjoyed myself. Will I go again next year? I wonder. I suspect most of the vehicles will be the same, so why bother? Then again, […]
