We left the Abbey for a walk today and Nek Minuten we were in Germany!
“Guten Tag” the shop keeper greeted us as we entered. Wow, that easy.
“Danke Shoen” I merrily called as we left. My fifth form German coming back to me, I hoped that mean’t thank you. Tho I couldn’t for the life of me think of much else. Funny how I passed both French and German but the French words seem much easier to remember. Come to think of it I did an extra year of French. How I wished now I had done that practise I said I would do. Nothing here in this little place is in English. I can have French, German or Dutch, but we are getting by Ok.
The Abbey is surrounded mostly by naturally wooded areas and man made ponds so beautiful and peaceful.
