Germany, like so many Army brats, it is also the land of my birth, my home away from home so to speak.   So when we landed and began a multi-city road trip I felt the pull of the forests, the gorgeous landscape, and the amazing highways!

The children loved the spas of Baden-Baden, the Ludwigsburg Palace and Baroque gardens, and though we almost met our end on the slides at Monte Mara it did convince us of the true meaning of the words, “ride at your own risk”.
