The cold days of winter are fast approaching here in Germany. Heck…they’re already here! Man it's cold already! For a lot of folks, it's good news because it also means that ski season has arrived as well. One of the great perks about living in Southern Germany is that world class slopes are only a few hours away! And this year, with Veterans Day falling smack in the middle of the work week, many families are taking advantage of an opportunity to get a 10-day vacation while missing only two school days. You see, here in Stuttgart, kids were off school last Friday, Nov. 6 and they are off Nov 11-13 as well. Count it up!
