Hey! As noted in our previous post about Staufen, we like to go to Germany at least once a year to visit our friends and hang out. This includes visiting our pals, Bev and Bruce, in nearby Freiburg.

Sadly, we lost Bruce this year while we were back in the U.S. He was an amazing person and we send him all the love and R.I.P. that we can. And, of course, endless hugs to Bev as she deals with his loss.

Another sad addition to this story is that we lost Louis while we were in Freiburg on this trip. He had his third stroke of the year late at night, so we had to head to the animal hospital and make the tough decision to have him put to sleep so he could go run through the meadows in the sky. He was nearly 16 years old, and he had an amazing run. All the love to Louis – and Ang – as well.

Both were loved greatly and we will miss them!

Those sad things said, we still had a good time hanging out with Bev in Freiburg, and made the most of our time there. We’ve been to Freiburg a million times, so it was a total hang-out session and not much more. So, here are some hangs!

Cows hangin’, and the view from our apartment.

A traditional and tasty dinner at Das Schiff with our buds from Staufen.

During our time in Freiburg, we also headed out to the Kaiserstuhl region – known for its wine – to eat at the always-delicious Landgasthof zum Lamm in Bahlingen for some more traditional eats.

When in this area, I’m always super-stoked to see work by photographer/artist Sebastian Wehrle. Love his pieces.

Back in Freiburg, we made it a point to stop by Decker Bier to visit our buddies. These guys make some fantastic craft beer, and we always enjoy hanging out there and drinking their goodies. Say hi to David!

When in Germany, one must have some döner kebab et. al. It just, has to be.

Lexi…I always keep a safe distance due to the literal scars I already have. This cat and I do not mix.

And, wrapping things up after a few days in Freiburg, we headed with Bev to Chada Thai for some really good Thai food.

And then, it was off to EuroAirport Basel-Mulhouse-Freiburg to head back to Seville. Their lounge is super-nice!

What they don’t tell you, though, is that, once you go through passport control by the gates, there’s no turning back. So, one cannot get back to the lounge if there’s a sudden two-hour delay. And yup, that’s exactly what happened to us.

Instead, we were stuck like this while waiting out yet another 2018 airport delay.

Ah well, life could be worse!

One more shout out to Bruce, and one more to Louis. We love you guys and we’ll miss you!!!
