Well the Balkans are behind us. They weren't as bad as what we made them sound like in the last blog entry- just different. Zagreb (Croatia) and Ljubljiana (Slovenia) were very youthful cities which we really enjoyed spending time in- lots of cool places to drink beer in the sun. 

The train ride from Ljubljiana to Lindau (Germany) was right through the middle of Austria. We didn't really take any photos as they would not have come close to describing how beautiful the trip was. If you wanna know what it was like, take the trip yourself.

Lindau is on the Bodensee (Lake Constance) which shares the border with Switzerland and Austria. We were staying with Johanna which was great. She was on holidays too and so we got to see quite a bit of the area. We went to a super old castle, we went on a boat, we went to a modern art gallery, we climbed a mountain. We even rode our bikes to Austria. 

Now we're in Köln (Cologne). There is a very large church here. We drink Kölsch. We hang out with Kylie and Aapo. We visit the Lindt chocoalte factory (maybe).

It's now less than a month before we get back but we have a lot to do before then- namely Berlin, London (again), Shanghai, Beijing, Tokyo, Hong Kong and Singapore.

Hi Guys,

I bet Steve hasn't contacted you in 260 days or whatever...he's so slack!!! I love your blog. I really can't get over the photos - such a different perspective of where you are. I have had boys in the boarding house who are fascinated with them. They want to get out there and start photographing things now.

Just letting you know that we are still thinking of you. Don't know if you know but we are a family of five now - had twins in April (Bridie Matisse & Jett Matteo) - Flynn thinks they're awesome - I sort of agree with him.

Anyway - take care
