...Leipzig in May....

We had a wonderful time in Leipzig in May.
It was SO good to spend some time with Bethany and Torsten 
We rented an apartment this time and it was SO much better than staying just in a hotel room.
The apartment was in a lovely area of Leipzig with a river and parkland and lots of restaurants.
Unfortunately poor Richard was really unwell the whole time but he soldiered on.
We spent a lovely day at Leipzig Zoo with Bethany, Torsten, Torsten's sister Nina and her little girl Anna....and Chris who happened to be over from Australia on business in Belgium so he joined us for the weekend.
We also explored Dresden, Meissen and Berlin in the rain.
I loved Meissen.  It was like a little German secret.
Lovely cobbled narrow streets and houses and shops set into the hills.
Berlin was amazing too.
So much to think about after visiting the site of the wall and the Jewish Memorial and Museum and the Brandenburg Gate
This trip over was the first time I'd been on the Autobahn.
We got up to 170 kmh
TOO fast for me!!
Here are a few special photos....
