There may be nothing better than a weekend spent with good friends in a new city.  I was lucky enough to have just such a weekend last weekend in Dresden.  A stately and vibrant city, Dresden is the kind of place where street artists meet 19th century cafes, colorful riverboats meet opera.  

We reveled in a long lunch and lots of delicious food, a slow walk through the city and a bit of an afternoon nap in a comfortable hotel room.  We ate delicious Thai and had a great experience at Good Friends restaurant and we enjoyed the Stadtfest that was happening while we were there.  Mostly we talked, laughed, enjoyed the sun and the wonderful and impressive atmosphere of the city.  

Dresden is a stunning city with a very sophisticated yet approachable feeling and I would highly recommend checking it out if you are in Germany.  Don't miss the Cathedral, which is one of the most airy and uplifting I have ever seen.  Also, the Dresdener Zwinger is one of the most beautiful palace grounds I have ever seen!  

It's hump day here and I have been thinking about this last weekend ever since Monday came along. Now that we're heading towards the weekend, I am dreaming of planning another similar weekend soon!  Until then I'll just keep looking at the pictures...
