Euro Camping Trip 2008

Obama-Mania hits Germany, originally uploaded by TwoCrabs.

Greetings from London. The Two Crabs are back from camping across Germany, with stops in Nuremberg, Munich, The Bodanese (Lake Konstanz) and the Black Forest. More photos and full trip report TK.

We happened to be in Germany during Sen. Barack Obama's visit to Berlin. Germany, and most of Europe, has gone absolutely ga-ga for Obama. Hundreds of German fans turned out to welcome Obama in Berlin; never mind that they can't vote for him. Obama has indeed become an international celebrity even bigger than -- dare I say -- Britney Spears and Paris Hilton!?!

Shameless plug: We're upgrading to new camping equipment. Anyone interested in buying a tent, sleeping bags or a rucksack? All REI and all in great condition. Drop me a line for details!
