As I mentioned during last week’s {nifty thrifty sunday}, the hubby and I went out of town. We went to the mountains, about 2.5 hours away.
It felt a little bit like time traveling back a few hundred years. We saw cute little timber framed houses and an amazing castle in a town called Wernigerode; wandered alongside the “devil’s wall” and rode the cable car up the mountain.

We had a wonderful time, walking up- and downhill until our legs hurt. ;)
Here are a few pictures from our trip:

    Hi Vanessa, gosh it seems like forever since I’ve been here. I only just happened to notice your status update in Facebook. I’m so busy lately I rarely get to read any blogs. Your photos look amazing. What a beautiful place. Thanks so much for hosting and I hope to get back here on a more regular basis.
