Germany and Austria Family Visit

Boat Cruise down the Rhine River

See the rest of the photo's here!!
So with my parents down in England we had our opportunity to finally visit some of our relatives and friends back in Germany.   Thankfully my Mom is good at speaking German and most of the people we visited are pretty fluent in English so we were able to have a great time meeting all these people I've never met before!
Each day was packed with things to do as we were shown around the local towns and countryside.
Overall our impression of Germany has changed significantly for the better.  You really start to see a different side of things when you have an opportunity like this to stay with the people living there.
Hopefully another trip back to Germany will happen in the near future to reunite with all the new friends Suz and I have made. :)

Four jam packed days of events with lots of exciting competitions and achievements witnessed.   It was nice to have my parents there to explore and enjoy it with.  Some of the events we've never seen before or knew they even existed!  I put together a 10 min video with a bit of each event which hopefully brings some insight into what we experienced!
