An iPhone travel journal – Day 5

Saturday – Home Town Gate  
I got around a bit in my life. I was born in Switzerland, grew up in the South of Germany, worked in over 20 and travelled to over 50 countries. But my parents are both from Bavaria. They grew up in the same small village – named Teisbach – where even today a lot of Sperkas still live. Every year on All Saints day (1 November) they visit the graves of their parents and many relatives in the small town. This is a Catholic tradition. Together with my brother, my nieces and one of my nephews I am accompanying them on this year’s visit. We have arrived in Bavaria after five hours of travel. The picture is of an old gate of the village of Teisbach.

More to follow soon …

  1. I’m sure that is good to be back home with family. The cupola on the roof of the gate house shows 728, but it may also be 1728. Is that the age of the gate house? And has the cupola been precariously perched on the roof for nearly 400 years?
