Some perfect late autumn days…

A magical sunset bicycle ride to (my new favourite landmark) the Walhalla Temple…


The first SNOWFALL of the winter on the 15th November 2011…a wonderful surprise on an early morning walk to school! (And nobody batted an eyelid whereas I walked around over-excitedly taking pictures…)

A day trip to Nuremberg with some of the loveliest girls on yet another school holiday (this time: Buss- und Bettag, a church holiday), where we admired the Christmas decorations, sat in a warm cafe and walked around the Altstadt (very pretty.)


Not pictured:

remembering how much I love the youngest classes with their ten-year-old enthusiasm and endless questions, a twilight drive to Straubing with the Maiers, a fun evening with Piers and Eloise and her visiting friend, organising pen pal writing with the 9. Klasse, a tour of the Schloss Thurn und Taxis (Regensburg’s very own palace) and excitement for the en masse family visit this weekend!!
