Fun in Regensburg

by Christina Geyer on April 27, 2008 · 10 comments

I’m back and healthy again (I had one butt-kicking cold, Oliver had a runny nose for two days – thank goodness for breastfeeding!).  Spring has finally come, plus we had our monthly Regensburg meetup today – brunch did not prove all that popular in the end, so we’ll probably stick to dinners in the future, although I think that everyone who showed up enjoyed themselves and Rive Droite is highly recommendable for brunch (good eats for little money).  So I will now inundate you with photos of our recent exploits.

Glad you are feeling better. I LOVE those bright blue eyes!

I see, nothing has changed in 15 years with the selection of US foods. The price is a hit in the face:(

Hi Christina,

Nice to hear that you are feeling well.
Great idea, these local expat get togethers :)
Rainer is looking tired in the photo.But, the kids seem to be having lots of fun !

Bye for now.

Hey Christina,
It’s me again.
If you hop over to my blog, I borrowed your idea of the “questions & answers”.

So, you ask me a question !

Cheers ;)

How come all those bloggers are so good looking? And are those babies real? The look delicious… how fun to all have the chance to meet up.

Wow, the pictures look pretty cool!

I don’t know much about Germany despite growing up in France. The old rivalry I guess… anyway, I’m curious about the country itself and your views as an expat (I’m French in Canada).

Will be back with more “on topic” comments! ;-)

@maria: I’m feeling better now, but Oliver is a poor little sick guy. I think the worst is over though, he’s smiling and playing a little today, but still doesn’t want to leave my arms.

@silvia: Yeah, buying US food over here is a rare indulgence for us.

@barbara: Rainer would like you to know that he was watching the kids play in the corner ;-) And I’m gonna hop over and ask a question in right after I post this!

@lynda: The meetups are a lot of fun, but there’s not that many bloggers among us (anymore, we used to dominate!)

@rita: Aw shucks! I’m healthy, but little Ollie is having a tough time (I think it’s teething). Rainer may have to go to Berlin soon, hopefully we can tag along and stop by and see you along the way.

@zhu: Welcome! I look forward to hearing more from you in the comments!
