After just a few days in Amsterdam, Diane and I went to visit my cousin, Erika. She lives in Bavaria, in the small town of Bernau. It was a few degrees cooler there than Amsterdam with a bit more snow on the ground.
One of the lovely villages we drove through on our way to Berchtesgaten
On one of the full days we were there, we drove about an hour east to a place called Berchtesgaten, a national park but also a lovely village. On the way there, we drove through picturesque small villages and spotted lots of people skiing, some downhill, but most were cross-country skiers.
