Guten tag, Germany!
Tonight we open for our one week stay in the quaint town of Baden-Baden. Although it is not one of the more glamorous towns we visit, it is shaping up to be an exciting one full of really really old history and newer legacies.
Baden-Baden is a spa town. One of the main attractions is the slew of Roman bath houses and contemporary spas. I have yet to venture into one (holding out til Thursday!) but a few cast members have already gone and their skin and stories are straight out of a travel-book fantasy.
Another fun fact is that the Black Forest Ham we know and love is manufactured and extracted exclusively from the Black Forest bordering the town. It makes the cold cut sound so mysterious.This town is also so small, that the only laundry business around closed down a while ago. For those of us counting on it, this was not great news to arrive to with a suitcase full of dirty socks. So if you need me I’ll be decorating our room with hand wash. More details and adventures to come!
