Thirsty Thursday: Esslingen, Germany

Rambler: Beth

Drink at Hand: Ventana Monterey Red Table Wine  

Thirsty Thursday here again! Time to pour something yummy and make those weekend plans. We just got back from a little time away in Europe. I spent two weeks in Germany doing a little school work, then Terry joined me and we headed to Italy for a week. All around awesome!  

While in Germany I was staying just south of Stuttgart in a town called Reutlingen. On the train ride from Stuttgart to Reutlingen I noticed this quaint town with what seemed like miles of vineyards around it. I made note of the name...Esslingen. One evening after classes were done for the day (and after too many nights of biergartens) I decided to go on a solo exploratory stroll around Esslingen...on the train I hopped and off I went. I didn't have an agenda, just to see the sites, and hopefully capture some grape vines overlooking the city. I didn't find exactly what I wanted, but I still found some great old buildings and some cool views from the old city wall. Definitely an worthwhile outing! 

Totally jealous of these mountain bikers. 

Just a few from a little city wandering. Many more photos of our euroadventure coming!
