This week, the WordPress weekly photo challenge, Cover Art got me thinking about Reenactors, who could be described as people who “cover” the lives of other’s. For this week’s challenge, I went back in time to the first Ritterfest (knight’s festival) we attended. I couldn’t resist sharing these today, giving them a twist on some classics.
“An Upstate New Yorker in an Austrian King’s Court”
The king greets his people during the royal procession
Inspired by Mark Twain’s ” A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court”
“Tales from the Jacobsweg”
It’s a long way from Canterbury, but we’ve got pilgrims on the Camino Santiago de Compostela.
Inspired by Chaucer’s “Canterbury Tales”
“The Time Traveler’s Guide to Medieval Germany: A Handbook.”

Inspired by Ian Mortimer’s “The Time Traveler’s Guide to Medieval Europe, A Handbook for Visitor’s to the Fourteenth Century.”
What do you think?

Early Saturday morning, it dawned on me. There was less than a week remaining until Halloween, and I had yet to take the children to get pumpkins. If we were going to carve Jack-O-Lanterns, we’d need to find our perfect, beautiful pumpkins today. No problem, I thought to myself. I remembered seeing a rather large display of …

There are a few things here in Germany I will never quite get right. I will never figure out which garbage is being collected on garbage day without first checking to see what my neighbors set out. I will always dial a wrong number, because I will never figure out the proper prefix for a …
