Sure what else would you have but a Schwarzwälderkirschtortenstück in the Black Forest?

All meaning that we arrived. We got here. Exhausted but ok. We had what the Germans call “Abendbrot” the term itself indicating the distance between German and irish evening meals. But we all enjoyed it a lot. Pádraig had some especially minced meal, followed by a piece of cake, followed by a few strawberries, followed by a full glass of Apfelschorle.

We met the other Irish family that is here at the moment, leaving at the end of the coming week having that Abendbrot. It was good to catch up and to hear how they had been getting on.

Pádraig then had a shower and went off to bed, to rest before an early start and a busy day tomorrow. We’re about to follow him!
