Here are some more pictures from the Germany trip I took two years ago. We traveled to a town called Landshut (pronounced more like landsuit), where my husband spent some time. I don't have any good historical stories from this town, but I did try on a traditional costume, called a dirndel.
Every four years, this town puts on a big re-enactment of a wedding that happened way back in the day. We happened to be there the right year, but too early to take part in the festivities.
