Autumn in the Taunus

Back home we had a lovely autumn with beatiful colours. Autumn is also the time when after harvesting it is possible to have some fun on fests. In Bad Homburg there was the Laternenfest and even nearer in Obernhain was a Flugfest.

In August we had a gorgeous vacation in Barcelona. The plan was to go to town in the morning, do siesta and then go to the beach. Because of the weather we went less often to the beach. Two times we even got really wet. However the temparature was quite nice.
