Heidelberg, Germany

I think anyone who has ever been to Germany has probably been to the picturesque town of Heidelberg. Our tour included a trip up to the castle ruins, thankfully by bus. I do remember a previous visit where I had to walk up! Heidelberg also has Germany's oldest University. The University Of Heidelberg, founded in the fourteen century. I would have loved to do a study abroad semester in this town!

I mentioned earlier that we seemed to be delivering Spring as we floated north..along with that came  beautiful sunshine!

I don't know the name of this pretty pink tree but we saw several of them in bloom.

  1. Funny, I know the names but have never been in the towns you visit. But everything looks very nice. You did bring the spring here, but when you left you took it with you I think.... You choose the right time to make your tour.

  2. I had forgotten about the hills in Heidelberg! The blooms are a beautiful spring sight.
