A week with the Brachts

Stephen and Ginny Bracht joined us in Europe the day after Christmas continuing a tradition of renting a house with friends somewhere for New Year's. They only had a week but we managed to visit a few countries before ringing in the New Year in Düsseldorf. It was a good way to end the year even though not everyone was able to make it. I do wonder what crazy plan we will end up with this New Year... I also wonder where I'll be traveling from...

Not a restaurant we were expecting to find in Belgium.  
Austrian Alps.
Sunset in the Alps. 
"Gas station coffee" means something different in Italy...
The pot of gold at the end of the rainbow is "black gold". 
Cooking New Year's dinner and putting Jean-Marc's christmas gifts to good use. 
After Christmas with Jean-Marc's family, decided to use the multiple course model for our New Year dinner too.
Cutting up Belgium chocolate for fondue...
Dessert was soon interrupted for an awesome fireworks display by all the neighbors.
