The village ahead: Gimmeldingen.
Weeks of sickness behind us. Kids and me down with real influensa and all kinds of infections. I missed several wine events already and had absolutely not the slightest desire for even a sip of wine. That is when you know, you ARE sick.
But this past weekend made up for it: It was time for the yearly Mandelbluetenfest in Gimmeldingen. The almond trees in full blossom, wineries opening their doors and vineyards. Thousands of people came from near and far to enjoy the sunshine and the temperatures around 20 C. Spring! Wine! Life! Hurra, wir leben noch!
