Feeling Better

Hello everyone! The last time I posted I mentioned that I took a spill and injured my back. What I didn’t mention was that the next day we boarded a plane. Part of the family visit involved going to four countries. Fortunately for me, the first flight wasn’t too long since my back was killing me and I could only sit in certain positions. It’s feeling much better now and I would like to thank everyone for their kind comments.

Now that we are back in London we only have a couple of days until the family heads back home. I thought I would post a photo from our first stop to see if anyone can guess where we went first. In a few days I will be able to fill all of you in more on our vacation. I hope all is well and soon I will be able to visit your blogs and catch up.

    Welcome nearly back!

  2. We have all missed you TBM!!!! And I don’t have a clue about the location of the photo.

  3. fgassette says:

    Glad to hear you are doing much better. Can’t wait to see more of your photos. Don’t have a clue to where this photo is taken. Are those U.S. flags on top of the building?


    • TBM says:

      Not US flags, but I selected a photo that didn’t have them flying too much to make the game a little harder. They’re German flags over the Reichstag in Berlin.

    Glad you’re feeling better, and good to hear from you again! Vienna? 🙂

    Weather looks great …. well, at least on that day. All is going well … let’s see – time with family, healing back, travel, etc. 🙂

    • TBM says:

      The weather in Berlin was fantastic, mostly hot. It rained one night while we were at a cafe. So very romantic until we had to run back to the hotel soaking wet. But how often do I get to run by the Brandenburg Gate on a rainy night. Answer, so far only once.

  6. Berlin, the Reichstag?! Have been there and it looks familiar, beautiful city. So glad you are on the mend!

  7. We’ve missed you, TBM! Glad to hear you’re feeling better.
    And, if I venture a guess about that photo, it will only expose my ignorance. =0

    Glad you are feeling better!
    My guess is the Reichstag Building in Berlin. I’d like to visit Berlin someday. I also tried to focus in on the flag at the top left of the building to see what country it belonged to.

    • TBM says:

      I really enjoyed seeing Berlin. I studied German history in school so it was a real treat for me to visit! I hope you see it someday.

    Glad you are feeling better and also got I go on a nice trip! I’m guessing Madrid for the photo..

    I’m both sorry to hear about your injury (isn’t the timing of things great?!?!) and happy to hear that you are on the mend. I hope you have had a wonderful time with your family and look forward to hearing all about it, and commiserating with you over the melancholy of their departure.

    • TBM says:

      I couldn’t believe the timing of my injury. It is never fun to injure my back. I’ve struggled with back issues since I was a teen–I was in a car accident. But the day before a two week vacation that involved a lot of walking and carrying a backpack–it upset me some. But I did my best to enjoy and they serve really large beers in Germany, which was our first stop. That helped 🙂

    Glad to hear you’re feeling better. Take care and looking forward to your next posts! Thought maybe Berlin – few people have also said that so maybe it is? Haven’t been but thought I recognised from some pics I’d seen.
    Looking forward to reading more soon.
    Lynn 😀

  12. Missed you! Sounds like you had an amazing time with the family 🙂 Back to work you!

  15. IsobelandCat says:

    Nice to see you. I’m going for Berlin and the Reichstag building too.

  16. Caroline says:

    I’m glad to hear you are feeling bettr. 4 countries. That’s ambitious. Not sure where you tokk the photo but the flag says Germany.

    • TBM says:

      Yes it is a German flag and the photo is of the Reichstag. 4 countries involved a lot of flights, but fortunately all of them were under an hour until the one home so it wasn’t too bad.

  17. Great to have you back TBM!!! 🙂 **

  18. Yay! I’m so glad you’re feeling better! 😀

  19. Novroz says:

  21. Carol says:

    Glad you’re feeling better.

  22. niasunset says:

    Oh dear TBM, we have all missed you, I am so glad to hear you and also to hear that you are getting better. I can see the flag, and seems to me it is German flag… but which city I don’t know 🙂
    Thank you, have a nice day, love, nia
