very year we have some vague yet grand ideas about exciting places to go for Karneval/Fasching - but we haven't actually left Heidelberg for it again since the first year we were here. Usually it just creeps up too quickly and we're left thinking, "Karneval is today?!" This year it falls a bit later and we have a little more time to end up still deciding to do nothing but catch a few cruddy hard candies at the Heidelberg parade. I've actually started to recognize some of the people in the parade because they're in it every year! Every year we consider going to Rottweil, but it takes a while to get there. This year we also considered Mainz, which is a big Karneval town and only about an hour away by train. But, there's that - the train. Having had class there during big party times, I know what those train rides are like. FULL, and TRASHED! I think I might be getting too old to feel like dealing with the drunk train.
I don't know. What are you doing? Any ideas?
