Visiting the "Old Country"

I didn't post anything since April and I apologize for that. I wanted to keep the blog going after the trip but just too many too serious things were happening. My wife fell ill next day after we got home, hospital, surgery, long recovery, then I got sick. Thanks God we are OK now and back in business planning the next trip down south in January. Usually when we visit Hungary we always do it after September, October, we can save enough on airfare to cover a rental car. Since we have been working in Germany for years we fly to Germany, visit a few places, stay at our favorite hotel Gasthof Auer in Passau and carry on the next day. This year we flew in May! The reason: Grandson # 3 was due the first week of May and we didn't want to miss that.

My wife with our rental Ford Focus,
diesel, 860 CDN for 3 weeks, unlimited mileage 
Shocking fuel prices in Germany. It's in Euro, multiply it by 1.35 and it's for a liter 
A church gathering right next to our hotel on the weekend. 
Nice RV-s in a rest area. The one on the left is a Fiat, a Dodge now in the US and Winnebago is building a Motor Home on the Chassis, it's called Trend. 
Truckers can NOT drive on the weekend in Europe, everybody has to park. 
My wife's favorite rest stop is the Rosenberg chain in Austria, we had to stop at every one of them. 
We made it home on time but Mr. Grandson was 2 days late. I have been holding him when he was 4 days old.
