Back in mid-October, I visited my relatives in Oberammergau, Bad Kohlgrub, and Oberflossing. The occasion for my visit was to see my aunt (my mom’s sister), who isn’t getting any younger. And while talking to her on the phone is nice, talking to her over coffee and one of her homemade cakes is even better.
I got in to Munich at 7 am and by 10 am, my cousin Klaus had me hiking in the fields near Mittenwald:
Afterwards, we went to Oberammergau for lunch and to drop off my luggage at his house.
The next day, I went to see my aunt in Bad Kohlgrub. I brought along a beer I had brought with me from my homebrew cellar for her to try. From the look on her face, I’m not sure she liked it.
