It’s been a while since we have gotten out just to explore a new city besides our own. OK, that’s not true. Jeff and I went to Regensburg two weeks ago on a daytime date while Amelia was in school. But that doesn’t really count for two reasons: 1. We wasted most of our time there looking for a decent cup of coffee (and never finding one, despite ordering three each– yikes, I think we have a big problem) and had to rush to pick Amelia up from school. 2. My camera ran out of batteries after about six shots. So, yesterday was the day to really check it out. The drive is only 45 minutes!
Regensburg is a medieval city along the Danube, and the area we visited is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It was really cool to see all of the amazing architecture, ranging widely from the 12th century on up, until modern times. I love all of the details and statues, especially built into buildings, like this deer. I’ll just mostly show you pictures, with some commentary. If you find photo-heavy posts tedious, well… you might want to move along. This one is heavy indeed.
