Week 45 - Oberammergau (Bavaria, Germany)
Photos from our week in Oberammergau and the Bavarian Alps are posted here.
Friday, April 15
I was out of bed by 5:00 am, up early before the alarm. I woke up for some reason… then couldn’t get back to sleep—too many thoughts. The day was actually here… the day we were leaving La Bastide Vieille, the day we were leaving Provence.
I stayed up till after 1:00 am last night—this morning—posting our final blog from Provence. Charley and Kelly both wrote pieces—Kelly’s was a poem. I had planned to write too, but couldn’t seem to write anything new. Just a few hours later—up before the sun—I was back on the computer, checking messages and our financial accounts... making some plans for a trip with a friend when we get home. Several people had already read yesterday’s blog update and left thoughtful and caring comments. So many people have shared this experience with us. I checked in on the Slow Travel message board and even posted a comment about types of food we enjoyed in England. It seemed strangely normal to be doing this—as if it were just any other morning in Provence.
