Some More Photos From ‘The Village’

After my initial post on my fraught annual return to ‘The Village’ where I grew up (click here to read it), I thought I’d put up some more photos.

Biburg (that’s what it’s called), though not ugly, doesn’t quite make the ‘stunningly picturesque’ category, and I tried hard to avoid snapping the insipidly mundane. I may have failed…. 😉

Some pretty-ish cottages/farm houses:

My old schoolfriend’s mum’s very impressive balcony!

I’m back home in Spain now, and I’ve got lots of much better pictures from my visit to Bavaria still coming up, so do not despair… 😉

    Just remembered why I’m visiting- I get distracted sometimes! Cathy (Catbird in Europe) said you lived in Toledo and I came looking for photographic evidence. I’m no cook so you’d have to take pity on me and feed me. 🙂

        Durham – I just saw on your blog. Man, you have a beautiful cathedral and the view as the train pulls into Durham station must be the most stunning in the UK, if not ANYWHERE!
        I’ve never been to Portugal, would you believe, but it’s on the list 😉

        You’re of German origin, I believe? My Dad’s Polish. We’re a multi cultural lot, aren’t we?
        We sometimes go for jaunts across the border when we’re in the Algarve. We’ve been to Granada, Cordoba and Seville, but Toledo’s a little too northerly to be easy.
