After we moved into our house in Bondorf and did some initial decorating, we found that we had a large empty wall in our living room. We decided to buy five frames with black mats and display groups of our photos taken while living in Europe. We chose our favorite photos and grouped them into themes.
Click on the pictures below to see our photo groups. The groups are arranged in reverse order of their appearance on our walls. The first set of photos is what’s currently on display.
When you are viewing a photo grouping, you can click on an individual photo to see a larger version of the picture and a little information about the photo.

|Carnival is celebrated in Germany as it is in many other parts of the world. In New Orleans, it is known as Mardi Gras; here in southern Germany, it is known as Fasching or Fastnach. Most of the towns in the area have parades featuring traditional costumed figures known as "Narren" - in English, "fools".|
