An Evening Stroll in Elsdorf


As I told you, on Saturday night I went and visited Ms. Müller’s little village, Elsdorf.  Now as I found out when I punched the place into my GPS, there’s about 15 Elsdorfs in Germany…  We’re in this one:

Elsdorf, Rhein-Erft-Kreis, Germany.

It was a pretty little place.  Really tiny, really quiet, and quite agrarian.  We took a stroll through town, which took maybe 20 minutes, and I bet 15 minutes of that consisted of my taking pictures.

It was nice to get an opportunity to get off the beaten path a bit, and actually check out the German countryside for a change.  Beat the hell out of a power plant, and the company wasn’t bad either…  Have a look.

“Main Strasse” Ok, not really what it’s called, but it was pretty much the only street in town, so I guess that makes it main street…

Cute little park.

The omnipresent church steeple. Every town in Germany has one, regardless of its size… The house in the foreground is 102 years older than the U.S., according to the house itself.

Not to be a stickler, but I believe they misspelled ‘soccer field.’

And we’re out of town now, maybe 3 minutes down the road from Ms. Müller’s house.

Apparently I don’t know what poisonous shit looks like out here… And I definitely knelt down in the German equivalent of poison ivy for this shot, so you’d best appreciate it.

I like this picture. In case you wanted my opinion.

Decent little sunset.

Wind turbines are everywhere out here.

Pretty. Like this one too.

And finally, Ms. Müller’s driveway at the end of our brief little walk…

And that’s all for this evening…  A guy’s got to sleep sometime.  Come back soon.

  1. Looks like a wonderful little village. I can only hope that little towns like this and such pretty countrysides remain the way they are and maintain their European feel.
    Cheers

  2. I love the pics of the trees. James says, “Liar. They don’t have trees in Germany.” =)

    Hey, I really like your website 🙂
    I’m currently in the process of setting up my own using wordpress as well. I found one of your comments in a forum whilst searching for something I needed help with, and I see you’ve successfully done it… was just wondering how you got to link your categories to a certain page (like for example you click the road and at the top it says “category archive: the road) and then has all the posts filed under the road. Would be a really great if you could help me!
    Thank you 🙂

    • Hi, I’m glad you like the site :). I’d be happy to help a little later when I get home. I don’t remember exactly how I did it, but I could find it pretty easily… I eventually did find the answer in the forums somewhere… I’ll get back to you soon. Good luck with your site 🙂

    • With my theme anyway, i went to ‘appearance’ -> ‘menus’ and then the little ‘+’ sign to make a new menu… One of the choices is there is ‘category.’ There you can assign a category, like ‘The Road’ to the menu and it will appear in your header… Hope that helps, good luck 😀

      • Hi, Thanks so much for getting back to me 🙂
        I don’t think my theme supports that menu, but I used a plug in called map categories to pages (just incase you or anybody else reading this wants to know) and it does what it says on the tin, only as a list form though but it’s good enough for now ha!
        Thanks again anyway, keep on writing! 🙂
