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.

NEITHER RAIN NOR HAIL NOR SNOW


     I can't get over the fact that people in Germany ride their bikes in the snow. All kinds of snow and all ages of people.  Even people in their 60's and 70's! 


      But watching the mail carriers here in Munich, all on bicycle, has really amazed me.  I wonder if their U.S. counterparts would be so willing to brave the elements on two wheels?  Something tells me that their must be a law that protects them from such working conditions.  Ya think?

'Warmduscher' (someone who takes warm showers instead of cold) is a popular German insult.
