When JB was 3 years old and his sister 5, his parents invited a foreign exchange student from Germany to live with them in Black Foot, Idaho. She even holds a diploma from Snake River High. Now Ivonne has two children of her own and lives in Freiburg, Germany – just an hour north of us. We had fun visiting with her yesterday!
and… we’re off.
In Freiburg, all of the walkways have a little stream running down them.
the fable is if you fall into one – you will marry a German. i did not fall in (:
Then Ivonne took us to her village.
JB & Ivonne
Ivonne & Armin’s home.
Armin is an Architect and designed their home.
It is INCREDIBLE.
lots of open spaces in their home. with a great porch in the center. right next to their canal.
Armin made this!
(the window below has a view of their neighbor, and the stream running in between them.)
then we hiked to a castle (made in 1250) in the spooky black forest
it was worth it. take a look at this view!
not just JB (;
Ivonne, JB, and Me (:
our train was delayed so we took a late night stroll in Freiburg
We had so much fun thanks to Ivonne and hope to visit again soon.
