200 Years vs. 200 Miles

 

This is the 800-yr-old Marksburg Castle in Braubach, Germany, that we toured in March.

 

What's the difference between a European and an American?

That's what my post is about at Vision and Verb today!

Did you climb to the top, Ginnie? When I went to Europe last year, I was always so amazed by the grand structures. In Toronto, everything is so modern - which I like - but exploring historical places is so refreshing.
Ginnie Hart: We didn't climb, Emily, but road the coaches to the top and then spent a lovely 2 hours touring the castle. Many of my last images have been from this place. It's amazing! I was never used to this kind of old in America, of course! Many thanks.
Amazing castle - what a beautiful image of it, Ginnie. I look forward to reading your V&V tomorrow. And to answering your email! smile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, thank you, thank you, Elizabeth. I'll never forget this castle! smile

Oh, your photo reminds me of an old children book I once read - a prince and a princess wanted to come together - but the water - the Rhine was too deep ...

Es waren zwei Königskinder
(Volksballade)

Es waren zwei Königskinder,
Die hatten einander so lieb,
Sie konnten zusammen nicht kommen,
Das Wasser war viel zu tief.

„Ach Liebster, könntest du schwimmen,
So schwimm doch herüber zu mir!
Drei Kerzen will ich anzünden,
Die sollen leuchten zu dir.“
...

Yes, I agree this is very German - or German in an American point of view? Later I'll read your V&V tribute!
Ginnie Hart: Awww. Thank you, Philine. I put the ballad in my translator and this is how it came out:

There were two Royal children
(Ballad)

There were two Royal children,
You loved each other so,
You could not come along
The water was too deep.

"Oh Darling, you could swim,
So swimming it over to me!
I want to light three candles
"That should shine unto you."
comme dans mes rêves de chevalier ,belle journée
Ginnie Hart: Or The Three Musketeers, Keyouest? smile Merci.

He he... America could still have a queen now.

You can then tango with your new Queen.
