Triberg, Germany {The Black Forest}

This city is famous for its cuckoo clocks. We traveled here on Dec. 26. My brother, Matthew, offered to watch the kids so we could enjoy all the breakable stores without our little helpers. Last minute G begged to go, so we had fun with her there too. We loved seeing all the beautiful wood workings including beautiful nativities {which were first created in Triberg, by the way}, cuckoo clocks, and many more beautiful things. We also enjoyed all the winter shops full of beautiful sweaters. Matt wore my sunglasses and scarf while I tried a few on. At the end of the day we sat down for a traditional German meal with yummy spaetzle {a type of egg noodle with onions and melted cheese}, wiener schnitzel, and a mixed salad {which is usually a green salad, potato salad, and cucumber salad all on one plate.} We like to top it off with a huge glass of apfelschorle {carbonated apple juice}. We even brought home a cuckoo clock of our own!
