Bavaria July 2003

We had a wonderful trip to Miesbach in Bavaria. This was arranged through the Tewkesbury twinning association, as Tewkesbury is twinned with Miesbach.The area is very beautiful, and our hosts overwhelmed us with kindness and hospitality.

We sang in two concerts, in Bad Wiesee and Otterfing, and also at a Sunday Mass in Otterfing to celebrate their priest's 40 year anniversary.In between we were taken on some wonderful sight-seeing trips around their beautiful countryside, which is rich in lakes and mountains and pretty chalet-style houses with window boxes overflowing with flowers.We were royally entertained and our hosts could not do enough for us. We had some wonderful times drinking beer and laughing and singing together! It is difficult to find words to thank them adequately for making our visit so enjoyable. We felt we had made many new friends, and look forward to meeting some of them again if and when they come to Tewkesbury for a return visit.
