CHRISTMAS TREE SHOPPING IN GERMANY
Celebrating Christmas without a tree is unthinkable and we have finally found our tree in the courtyard of an old farmhouse. Many old farmhouses in our area open their courtyards and sell Christmas trees in all sizes. It is a wonderful event to go there and look at lots of different trees before you decide. There is a stall where you can warm up with a glass of Glühwein and a variety of Christmas cookies. They also sell their own geese for a festive dinner.
Maria & Dieter
We are a German couple living near the romantic Rhine valley and the cities of Cologne and Bonn in Germany. Three years ago we met Susan through the internet and have become great friends. We have so much in common and share a passion for antiques, good food and traveling, that it is fun to meet and do things together. Over the last 3 years we have met Susan and her sister Eileen in Paris, Germany and the USA. We are already planning our next trips to Provence and Prague and Dieter and I feel honored to provide photos, comments, reports and recipes from Europe to Susan and Eileen's blog.
