My usual weekend while the wife is in Korea: ride my bike in the morning, clean the house, buy groceries, do work work on my cars, then go out for a ride, and take a hike on a forest.
Gotta make sure I bring the camera along for those pretty pictures...

This weekend I had a small road trip to my sister's home. She has been living here in Germany for almost 10 years, in the city of Michelstadt, near Frankfurt. Her city is pretty isolated from all Autobahns, so whether I take the highway or the side roads it takes me three hours to get to her home. Frankfurt by comparison is further away but it is much faster to go there because of the Autobahn that goes to it.
Leaving Ansbach I stuck to side roads through most of the trip. These roads
Here are some more pictures from day two of my Staff Ride through Berlin, following our guide, a retired British Army Lieutenant Colonel.

I have spent the last few days away in Berlin on a Staff Ride, which is basically a military history tour, to famous battlefields, etc. Here in Europe there are lots of these as these people like to go to war every fifty years or so and the US keeps getting involved. These tours are usually for higher ranking people like sergeants major, staff captains, majors, lieutenant colonels. etc. I am a staff sergeant so I don't usually get to go, but this time there were seats open and I volunteered to go.
