At long last the blog hop arrives at my favorite subject: travel. Have you traveled in Germany? Have you blogged about things to see in the town where you live? Then you can add a link to your post in the linky tool below, and we can all drool over each other’s photographs.
What is a blog hop and how do I join?
A blog hop is a way to collect links for blogs on a similar topic, to make it easy to find other bloggers and to get conversation started. So you write a post talking about travel in Germany, or find an older post in which you talk about the same. Then you add your link using the tool below.
This week the ball is in your court: YG is in England this week and won’t be around to comb the blogs for the most interesting Germany-related posts to share here.
Instead, I hoped that you all might tell me what the week’s best was: Just add a link in the comments if you’ve read an interesting blog or news post about Germany this week. I look forward to catching up with them all when I get back. And have a great weekend!

After my book signing last weekend, one of my gardening buddies sent me an email telling me how much she enjoyed the book, and ending with, “Quark? Really? How did it get that name?” This made me think that I need to set things straight about my favorite dairy product, which, alas, is hard to find in the United States.
Quark has been around centuries before the physicist Murray Gell-Mann decided to name the elementary particles he discovered in the 1960s “quarks”. He borrowed the term from James Joyce’s novel Finnegan’s Wake, without any connection whatsoever to the food.
