Ellie In Germany — I LOVE the Army!

I’m in Germany to speak to the military and their families stationed around Katterbach. They put me up at Colmberg Castle in a sweet suite that overlooks the village….oh, my, goodness–what a view out of my window.

We toured the village and I snapped this photo of the Kathy Wohlfahrt Christmas Village and I caught the reflection of the beautiful building across the street. Believe it or not, I actually found the small 1/2 price clearance section in that story (even though it was written in German, I can sniff out a bargain anywhere). I bought many small gifts there and will get a tax back break when I take my receipts to the airport. This was true when I traveled in Israel, too. So be sure to see if the country you visit has tax back offers and get the information from the merchants so you’ll be equipped at the airport to get your refund.

The last photo is me in the wrong kind of stocks! I prefer the financial ones. We toured the criminal justice museum and saw forms of “justice” throughout the ages including iron maidens and chastity belts. I would have been a criminal during the 1700s when drinking coffee was outlawed in this part of Germany and they had official “coffee sniiffers” to find you out! I also would have been forced to wear the “flute shamer” for musicians who sang or played musical instruments badly.

I talk to the military audience tomorrow night and I’m so honored to be able to give them a good work in due season–they need all the encouragement they can get in the midst of the sacrifices they make for all of us.

Wilkkomen!

    Hi Ellie, I am the Director at the Katterbach Child Development Center. I apologize that I missed you the other day and wasn't able to hear your stage presentation. I was with the teachers watching children of parents that were able to attend. I just wanted to share with you that every one of them reported they were so glad they went. You truly inspired them! Your timing to visit our post couldn't have been better. These wonderful, hardworking and dedicated spouses were truly touched by your message. Thank you for visiting our post and for making a difference. I hope to catch you next time. I look forward to reading your new book!
