Part one of Heidelberg pictures

Is there nothing so frustrating as when your computer gives you trouble?! I'm not a computer geek at all, so when something goes wrong I usually call the next door neighbor kid (although he is in college now!). So I was quite proud of myself when I fixed the problem on my own! I have been thinking about a laptop, hubby has been bugging me to get one for a long time, and I actually looked at some yesterday during the "black Friday" day. Nothing yet, but that's ok.
As I was looking back through old posts I realized that I never did show all of my Heidelberg pictures and the castle. So for the next few posts I thought that I would share some of them with you.
From Mannheim we took one of the local trains, and saw a lot of gorgeous countryside.

As you can see there are a ton of shops everywhere!! I did look through quite a few of them as I was looking for some boots to bring back home.....gotta have those boots!

As you know I can not pass a flower shop without taking pictures especially the European flower markets!

Crystal knew a few short cuts so we took the alleyways. I think that they made lovely pictures.

The colors on these walls really made this picture stand out. I like the honey brown yellow on the left wall side and then the ivory walls with the pink trim and the blue shutters on the other.

We decided to take the train to the castle which was really a vertical ride up. No need in getting our muscles super sore our first exploring day! Sounds like a good excuse to me!

My next post will be of the castle which is absolutely fascinating!!

Hi Ulrike,

Beautiful pictures of Heidelberg! I have never been there, but heard a lot about it. The housis in Germany are so different then the houses in Holland. I like the pastel colours.

Your golden box with fairy lights sounded good. Are you gonne make it yourself?

Happy day!

Lieve groet, Madelief

I miss Heidelberg SO much! In fact, I miss all of Germany and especially volksmarching. Thanks for sharing the wonderful photos.

I just love your photos too! The blue shutter pic is by far my favorite. I just love the European shutters and miss them so much!

My laptop has taken a hit also. I tried the first logical fix and it is not that either. So I'm using my old laptop and trying to share 2 computers between 3 people. My old laptop is so out of date that I can't do too much on it any more..

Oh well - those sales sound interesting. I haven't tried to look at anything just yet. My hope is to get the problem repaired for cheaper... (it's something to do with the power source.) Yuck!
