अ ब्लू ब्लू डे


A blue day in the hills above Schliersee, a beautiful mountain lake about 50 minutes away from München by train. The train is called BOB. no, really. Bayerische Oberlandbahn (Bavarian Mountain Railway). It goes every hour from our local station and takes you to the most gorgeous places within an hour. We walked up to Schliersbergalm, which is basically a children's playground with a beergarden attached, and a wondrous view. The food was more than edible, but not for crying out "YUM". To compensate, we had cake as soon as we got home, and I made delicious green and white fettuccine (paglia e fieno) from the best pasta brand, Montegrappa, with a vegetable "bolognese". Super delicious.
Tomorrow is Palm Sunday, Easter is coming soon - along with a cold spell, apparently.

and such graceful swans swanning on the lake...
