Every other year we take Y9 to the Mittelrhein - Boppard/Rudesheim/Koblenz - that area. This year, the temperatures were absolutely scorching - mid to high 30s every day.

I made the pupils do this on a group photo at the Niederwald Denkmal -

See it even bigger for the full-on cheesiness

Other things we did -

Visited Siegfried's Musik Kabinett - a museum of hurdy gurdies and fairground and other musical cabinets.

Bird display at Burg Maus, high above the Rhine -
Image

Consumed Bratwurst -
Image

Dressed like Brits abroad -

..and saw some fine sights -

I liked that one about 30 seconds in. That one with the multiple violins with the circular bow was insane.

I have had some great times in Germany.....my favourite place Konigssee, down by berchtesgarden (Bavaria)

You can take a little boat along the 'green' lake...usually a guy stands out on deck playing a trumpet..just a little tune...& it echo's all around the mountains..it's really beautiful..they call it....'Das echo vom Konigssee'.......

I spent a large chunk of my childhood in Germany at my grandma's near Hamburg - every summer and most christmases...I could wonder round by myself from being little all over the village - now I'm nervous if my kids arn't home on time. Lots of forests and beautiful scenery...
I would like at some time to go to where my mum's family came from - a place called Opole which is in Silesia - now Poland..I've just never got round to it....

Just got back from the annual no-sleep excursion with 48 kids to Germany, where it didn't rain at all and it was scorching hot every day....however, I did get a stomach bug and honked my guts up on the Wednesday and ate virtually nothing from then until now....got all the kids back in one piece though.

- we'll have to wait to see where efsb stayed, he left the link off!

Jimmy Porter and I had a trip to Berlin in September, which was grand. I've lived in Germany off and on during my life, but I'd never been to Berlin. We did the usual sights, including a very moving trip to a concentration camp about an hour by train from Berlin. This photo is of an art installation in the Jewish museum - Fallen Leaves by Israeli artist Menashe Kadishman. The thousands of faces are to represent the innocent victims of war and violence. They clank as you walk over them, I thought it symbolised the screams of the victims, and the sound will stay with me for ever.
