In Dortmund we stayed with our special friend Marina (and we thank you for your hospitality Martina!) We took trains, went for a beautiful hike, met new people, and had a small group dinner around a raclette grill for the first time (thanks Tammy!).

We spend Sunday afternoon in Unna where there was a festival going on, and a big outdoor marketplace.

In Unna we visited an open studio in one of the oldest houses in Unna. They create art that incorporates movement and interaction using vintage and antique pieces. It was a very creative and inspiring space, and we enjoyed briefly talking with Freuke and Dietmar.

Then it was on to Eindhoven Netherlands for a day. We stayed right in the heart of the central area and there are some beautiful green spaces nearby. We picked up some Chinese take-out and had lunch in the Anne Frank Park, which we learned of only upon arrival.

Love Locks

On our visit to Cologne, Germany in 2010, we put a lock on the Hohenzollernbr├╝cke bridge over the Rhine. George found our lock nearly five years later and most of the paint has washed off.

I used a sharpie and gave our lock a touch up for 2015.

The entire gate along this bridge is now a sea of locks. Maybe we will check back in another five years.
