Why you go to Germany...

Switzerland 018The guys and I fly in and out of Munich, Germany - a wonderful place and also notable for being the inaugural city for our annual New Year's Eve trips. I'd like to say that we went to Munich because the airfare was cheapest - it was a pretty good deal. But the real reason is probably in the photo.

Oooooh cheesey, gooey spaetzle with fried onions on top. It's the equivalent of homemade German mac 'n cheese. This is the first bowl full of goodness that we ate at 10:30 am after getting in to the city from the airport. Many more bowls followed over the course of the trip. Add a bier and you're in business!


Hi Laura: I had to laugh because that is my favorite dish when in Germany (2 or 3x/yr - my daughter lives there). So it is my staple every time I order (you gotta' bike more, that's all!). Yummy!
We 5 WWR's were in Waterloo last week and it was like Christmas. Our bikes are gorgeous, Heather was a great leader and we even got to go out on a bike ride. Wonderful Trekk family! So we are pumped to get started.
Glad your trip was full of good food & beer! Mary

That looks delicious! I'm salivating.

Hi Mary,
Glad you had fun in Waterloo!! It is neat seeing them craft the Project One bikes (wish one had been my ride!).

Did they say anything about the transition timeline? The old 5 of us have been asking, but so far no response.

Cheers, Laura

Wish I could shed light. I think they have a little ways to go before the website is up for us - so, I guess, keep blogging until you hear! Hope we meet someday, Mary

That's what I figured.

I bet you're dying to see what your photos looked like - I know I was!

We got to see some of the pics, but I'm sure not all of them. :-) I am DYING to see how the website is going to look!

What did you ladies do for your first posts?? I'm trying to figure that one out. I have a whole list for subsequent blogs, but am stuck on the first one.

Hi Amy,
That's awesome you got to see some of your photos! It kind of makes it all seem real, doesn't it.

For our first posts, I think we all shared bits and pieces from our essays. I know I tried to answer the questions... why should you read my stories, what can you expect, who am I.

As a new (kind of buried)feature on the Trek web site, with little promotion to outside audiences, I figured that our first readers were going to be the women who weren't selected and who were going to be reading with a more critical eye. (Why'd they pick her????) I was hoping they would give me a chance and I'm grateful they did.

And then I started getting feedback from women and men, and "kids" I used to babysit and the rest is history.

To make a long story short (too late) - tell me about yourself in those first few stories and what makes you tick.

I can't wait to read them!
