Munich, Germany
I am married to the love of my life and am finally able to shower him with all of the attention he deserves. I am now retired and living the life here in Europe. I am an American, he is an Australian, and this is our second overseas address. The first was Shanghai, China and now Munich, Germany. Come along and live the life with us as we continue our adventure of discovering all Europe has to offer.

Imagine a bicycle similar to this one, and imagine me on the bicycle.

Imagine biking around a lake as lovely as thisone on a sunny Saturday afternoon.

Imagine a tree similar to this one.

Now, imagine what happens when a bike and a tree collide!

Now imagine a wooden bridge over that body of water; a bridge that I never cycle over because I have hit the tree and now am falling over the side of the bridge into the lake water below..

Now, picture in your mind's eye, my husband, (instead of this woman) peering over the side of the bridge and watching his wife, in seemingly slow motion, tumble over the rocky shore, landing face first in the water as he sees her mangled body and her mangled bike submerge into the lake.

Tree, bridge, husband, bicycle, and wife are all doing fine. Wife is getting lessons on how to avoid accidents of this sort ever again. Otherwise, wife is certain that the bicycle will be the cause of her untimely death.....
