I was in Germany recently, and I stayed in Velburg, a quaint little town. The Hotel Zur Post is on the square and was built around 1668. That is the date on the church, built with an Onion Dome. Very typical of that region of the country. They serve the very best Potato dumpling with Beef in gravy. Across the street, there is a Bakery Shop that made the finest Apple Dumpling and Black Forrest Cake. What a great place to stay.

Later, I will post places I have been in Europe, about the city, sites, photos, and recipes.

Thank you for your complement, I appreciate your visit. I wish I had more time to work on it, and had a better understanding of computer works. I have traveled a lot in Europe and would like to share those experiences with the other Santas. What good is travel and the experience if you have no one to share it with. I have a plan to share the places, photos, and recipes of the local. Working on it. Also have a great Santa Adventure, to boot. Have a great day, and again, thanks.
