But I have absolutely nothing interesting to say, and I've run out of holiday to link to.

Had the little brother come and stay for a few days while he worked on a train.  But he was in so late every night we barely saw him.  And had several very late nights.  Oops.

Two years ago today we had a little bit of an explore of Heidelberg before heading back to Frankfurt and spending two days flying home.  Would have been nice to spend a bit more time in Heidelberg as we didn't get to explore the castle at all.  

Overall the honeymoon was pretty darned good.  I just wish I'd planned it better.  Because I spent so long planning the wedding, I hardly did any honeymoon planning at all.  We basically chose what cities we'd be going to and for how long, the first two places accommodation, and that was it.  We did most of our planning once we arrived in places, and booked the next accommodation from the previous place.  So there were things we missed because we just didn't know about them.  And some bad weather in the alps didn't help much either heh.

A bit over a month ago I noticed the last entry of the honeymoon blog that said: 

Hopefully it won't take two years to do like my USA photos did... ;)

Yeah.  So I'm actually a long way behind even that, because all I managed to do was pick photos for the blog.  Nothing has been labelled or geotagged.  Oops.


See the entire honeymoon blog on one page (temporarily anyway).

So it seems fitting that two years after the last day of our honeymoon, I booked our next holiday!!  To Japan and the UK later this year :)
So was pretty excited tonight to watch them do Masterchef in Hosier Lane, where we stood just a few weeks ago!  Stu says we should actually go to Movida next time :)

Hosier Lane
Was happy enough with the result of Survivor: Heroes vs Villians.  Would rather a hero had won heh.  But at least the person I didn't want to win didn't get any votes!! In your face!!

Two years ago today we had a lovely drive up the Romantische Strasse, stopping in N├Ârdlingen which we loved (and shot at the end of Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory) and Dinkelsb├╝hl (much more touristy) and ending up in Heidelburg (would liked to have spent more time there).

Last Saturday night, the sweetie and I went with Neil and Windy to see Spamalot.

We had dinner at P.J. O'Reilly's first cause we had Entertainment Book vouchers which gave us a couple of free meals.  I had chicken kiev which was pretty average compared to others I've had.  But the beers were nice.

Spamalot was *heaps* of fun!!  They referenced both mine and Neil's tshirts (Ecky ecky ecky and the Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch).  The singing was great.  I even got to sing "I have to push the pramalot" hehee.  One girl distracted the boys with her great .. tracts of land .. hehehee :)

Thoroughly enjoyed it :)


Two years ago today we toured Hohenschwangau and Neuschwanstein castles!!  Had been wanting to do that for twenty years so was extremely cool.  In the afternoon we went up Tegelbergbahn which was pretty cool too.  Then headed for Augsburg.

As far as I know nothing of any great significance happened today.  So nothing new to add to my collection of May 16 events.  Oh well.

The cherry tree has lost a lot more leaves this year than at the same time last year...
