Dad´s trip part 2 - Ulm with my 2 Dads

We wanted to go somewhere relatively close for a day trip and decided on Ulm since its only an hour´s drive away and my Dad could see the world´s highest cathedral. I for one, wasn´t looking forward to the 736 climb up to the top, since I can still remember what it was like to climb it not too long ago (here). Nevertheless, the view was really breath-taking again.

The weather left much to be desired though, since it was raining the whole day, sky was overcast and as warm as I was dressed, I could still feel the cold biting into my skin. It even snowed in Dresden where my Dad came from, as he presented a paper at some seminar there. Being Singaporean, he was obviously delighted to have such cold weather - the colder, the better. Its a running gag now that whenever my Dad comes to visit, we´ll have cold weather.
Right: Oh boy, we look like giants here!

Hey Precious Gems!
Thanks for popping by! I took a peek at your blog! Very insightful! May I ask if you take snippets of your material from Joel Osteen´s website? I just had to think of the "difference between thermometer and thermostat" example.
