If you’ve ever been in Germany you might have come across the Rat-haus, the Rat-skeller, the Rat-hausplatz and all sorts of other rat- places.

That’s were we went today. We sat in the shadow of the Rat-haus having a beer at the Pforzheim Beerfestival. It was the last night of Pádraig’s physio from Ireland being in Pforzheim and the second last night of the other Irish family staying here.

It was a fun afternoon in the sun with loads of activities – all that after a series of intensive therapy sessions in the morning.

An almost perfect day!
