From Regensburg

I can’t resist posting this as I sit in an Internet-Cafe in the Wahlenstraße 6 two streets over from the magnificent Regensburg Cathedral. Being in Regensburg can make one wish he or she were a Catholic. The city is so beautiful and it seems like being Catholic while visiting here could, in a certain sense, give one such a feeling of belonging and community. It is interesting to see so many monks, priests, and nuns about on the streets mixed among so many regular residents and tourists.

If I ever get the chance, I’d like to live in one of the buildings from the Middle Ages in the Kepplerstraße.

I’ll be in Germany until Aug. 10, so the return comments will still be sparse until then. But thanks to all who have left comments this week.

    How cool it is that you can spend time in Germany. I would love to visit that country (never been there).

    ‘Sounds fascinating. Enjoy, and enlighten us as to what you’ve been doing there when you get the chance.

    Don’t feel too bad about not being Catholic. The LDS branch meets right across the street am Domplatz (or it used to during my mission). Our missionary apartment was on the island in the middle of the Danube near the old stone bridge.

    The ward isn’t meeting in those rooms across the street from the Cathedral anymore–I don’t know where they meet now.

    That’s pretty sweet about your apartment on the island, though. We got some good pictures of the old stone bridge–what a feat of medieval construction!

    Regensburg was an important city in the middle ages and even much before, dating to Roman times, because it is the last navagable city on the Danube, if I am not mistaken.
