"One day it occurred to me that it had been many years since the world had been afforded the spectacle of a man adventurous enough to undertake a journey through Germany on foot. After much thought, I decided that I was a person fitted to furnish to mankind this spectacle. So I determined to do it. This was in March, 1878." Mark Twain, A Tramp Abroad


Hooray for Visitors!

Our first visitors--Aunt J and Uncle M!

We had a great time hanging out and showing them the town of Marburg. They were lucky enough to stay at the Marburg Hof hotel instead of crammed into our dormitory suite. Upon viewing their hotel room, I decided I would be content just spending the entire day there--t.v., internet, phone, minibar, trouser press...what else do you need?! After they pulled me away, we spent the couple days they were here seeing the sights of the city. Here are a few highlights...

In search of the perfect view. (Yes, all visitors to Marburg are required to make the trek up to the top of the city.)

Uncle M sips an espresso in the Marktplatz...

...while Aunt J teaches Penelope how to hold (eat) the camera.

Uncle M carried the little one (who felt not so little) all the way to the top...

...where she preformed a victory dance for us.

Penelope loves her aunt and uncle and can't wait to see them again at Christmas!

  1. The pictures are great! I love your yellow shirt, Jess. And the pic of Matt holding P with her tongue out made me laugh out loud. The city looks so quaint and adorable. Penolope is changing so much. She is definitely getting a look of her own. Sometimes I see Jenny in her and ever (don't laugh....Kirk!!) Once I thought she looked like "father." No doubt she is adorable!
