Leo did great on the flights- as usual. This was the first time he had his own seat, so it was nice for me to have my arms free (at least for part of the time) Leo slept in my arms for half the flight, and in his seat for the other half)
We stayed with our friends, the Dannellys, at their house in the cute little village of Gries. It was surrounded by rolling green hills, fields of bright yellow rapeseed flowers, and lush pastures with roaming cows. It was lovely. Here is the view from their terrace, and a photo from the village.
Heidelberg is a beautiful town. We walked around the old city, took photos from the bridge, and took the tram up the hill to the old castle, where we took a tour. Then we had lunch at an outdoor cafe in in a beautiful courtyard next to a large fountain. It was charming.
