Tubingen is a university town we had enjoyed visiting the last time we were in Germany; it was fun to go back and wander around again!! A river runs through the town, so the views on the bridge, along with the shop-lined square, and of course, cobblestone roads are picturesque.
We happened to visit on a holiday so most places weren't open, BUT the eis shop (ice cream/gelato) was and with five antsy kids on our hands, that was about all that mattered.
Tyson picked his own flavor, mango; each time we'd ask what kind he had, he'd pause, think, and exclaim, 'Flamingo..!!' Needless to say, I asked him what flavor he had quite a few times.. :)
some bags that caught my eye (but they were closed..); my SIL said she'd hold down the fort so the Mr. and I could go back another day for some real shopping.
