Add The New Braunfels Texas Wurstfest to Your Fall Travel

GEM├ťTLICHKEIT (warm friendliness, good cheer)

“Willkommen zum WURSTFEST! Prosit, und hab' Spasz!” is the slogan for this really appealing annual event. It means “Welcome. Cheers! To your health, and have fun!”

Combining a unique German community in South Texas, great food, fabulous bands imported from Germany for the occasion, amusement rides, affordable entry, a well-run event and often beautiful weather, the New Braunfels, Texas, “Wurstfest” has all the ingredients of a great family outing. (Plenty of local accommodations available, as this is an area where “gem├╝tlichkeit” is plentiful and tourists are welcome.)

New Braunfels is located just a few miles north of San Antonio, Tx., which offers a full array of activities to include in your schedule – Fiesta Texas, Sea World, the Alamo, the RiverWalk, and wonderful Mexican food and markets, should you wish to make this a multicultural adventure.

Having just returned from a lovely evening at Wurstfest, I’m compelled to tell you how much fun it is. We began on a perfect fall evening unable to resist the smell of the sizzling pork chops and huge German sausages served on a stick, complimented by a great selection of beers, potato soup, German dinners, Reuben sandwiches, corn on the cob – and more -- and ended our evening with pfankuchen, funnel cake and coffee.

We rode the beautiful Ferris wheel and then settled under Das Grosse Zelt, the big tent, at the end of the Marktplatz to be charmed by the 10-piece brass band from Germany whose rousing tunes got everyone up and dancing – just as many kids as adults, and partners not at all required. They were only topped by the band that followed.

This Wurstfest, the celebration of German sausage, began in New Braunfels in 1961, just a one-day affair which nonetheless drew a crowd of 2,000 due to press coverage throughout the nation and in Germany.

Since then, it has grown to a ten-day affair with well-maintained permanent facilities drawing over 100,000 and raising many dollars for local charities. Your good time will also be a good deed!

You can learn more about Wurstfest at their official website: http://www.wurstfest.com/index.html , and from the Wurstfest Association, Post Office Box 310309, New Braunfels, Texas 78131-0309, 830/625-9167, or toll free 1-800-221-4369.

Admission is a mere $8.00 per person (children under 12 free), with special rates for early purchase, groups, and day discounts.

ADD ANHALT

If Wurstfest dates should ever coincide with the 3rd Sunday in October (and even if they don’t), make it a homerun by including public dancing at Anhalt Hall, just down the road apiece, about 28 miles west of New Braunfels.

Anhalt was settled by German pioneers around 1857 and this may be the oldest dance hall in Texas, with a newly renovated 6000 square foot hardwood dance floor usually featuring a German band (you MUST do the German Grand March) and then a C&W band (local talent).

It’s open air and you can sit in the grandstands and watch or pay to get on the dance floor. Kids welcome and great food and beer. It is run by the Germania Farmers Verein, originally established to protect the settlers and their livestock from Indians. It’s out in the country and an experience you don’t want to miss.

How far out in the country? Well, according to the website, in the 1970s “the population along Anhalt Road between Farm Road 475 and the hall was estimated at ten.” Population figures for 2000 were not available.

Admission and ample parking are free; there’s a minimal charge ($7?) if you want to get on the dance floor (which you will)!

To read more about Anhalt, go to the Texas Honky Tonk Dance Hall website: http://www.honkytonktx.com/dancehalls/

They also feature public dancing during Mayfest (3rd Sunday in May), and Summerfest (last Saturday in July).

The ABCs of Adventurous Travel

A – Address peel and stick labels for all your family and friends before you go. Then stick to postcards along the way and you'll come home looking good.



B – Bottled water is a must – don't drink anything else.



C – Cookbooks from your travels are always a great souvenir. Cook a dish from one when you have friends over to see your video and pictures



D – Digital cameras save the day; their small and you never run out of film



E – Expect excitement; go with anticipation, not trepidation



F – Food is fun, try something you've never eaten before like zebra pate or Australian wine



G – Give generous tips, especially in poor countries, you'll be so glad you did



H – Hang out with the locals. Get to know a new person on your trip and get a photo with them



I – Inform someone at home of your itinerary



J – Journal every day. Can you remember now what you did last week?



K – Kids love it when you have packed little surprises to open along the way



L – Learn something: Take a pasta making course in Italy, Scuba diving in Argentina or Belly dancing in Bagdad (just kidding)!



N – Note the local artisans and buy something authentic



O – One substantial souvenir is better than a lot of small things. Then ship it home to lighten your luggage



P – Postcards will rescue you when your photography fails. You can never have too many



Q – Questions help you get the most out of all you see and experience.



R – Read before you leave. Read lots of books about your destination. Find out who the local best sellers are, and read one of their books.



S – Scrapbook within the first week of getting home



T – Travel as light as humanly possible. Dragging luggage is no fun.



U – Unpack as soon as you get home.



V – Vaccinations and certain medications are necessary in some countries – be sure to check with the World Health Organization about what you need.



W – Whining never fixes anything – buck up and deal with the differences



X – exchange your currency at the airport or a bank and be sure you understand the value of your money



Y – You are the one who will make or break your adventure. Plan to be positive



Z – Zero in on one or two experiences and squeeze the most out of them. Adventure overload will leave you confused.

A Time Travel Postcard

Seeking a spot of serenity somewhere in the universe, I recently booked a deep-discount dodgy berth on the ‘White Elephant Express Space Shuttle’, to a little known place in a galaxy far, far away.

“IT” (otherwise known as HD 36405.b) is not your average “oddball” exo-solar planet made of rock that wobbles on its end and zips around a nearby star in less than 2.46 days.

Most linear thinkers have a great deal of difficulty even comprehending why on earth anyone in their “right mind” would be interested in visiting a planet called “IT”. Not being a linear thinker with an investment in the “right” answer, I didn’t give a hoot. After all, what does one (who walks on water and listens to miffed mortals all day long) do for a frigging night off, now I ask you?

If truth be told, (after reading random excerpts from “The Itty Bitty Bunkum Book About Life, the Universe and Practically Everything Under the Sun Not To Mention Stuff Going On In Remote Galaxies), I was simply delirious. According to its noted author, Dr. Jarn Leffer, “IT is a ’must-see’ for those with little time on their hands and a passionate interest in Innocuous Things.”

As planets go, “IT” is a pretty ho-hum celestial pit-stop with perhaps one exception… the welcome notice that reads, “Cosmic Cowboys - Welcome to the furthest unexplored outreaches of the Galaxy … Home to the Flop Fairy and Oodles of Gadflies!”

“IT” is populated by colonies of giggling, green grasshoppers . What else would you expect to inhabit a far-flung, fantasy-challenged hellhole like this? But, what made “IT” strictly speaking a strange place was the fact that the inhabitants munch on green, biodegradable garbage bags just for fun. Lacking masticating capabilities, the gadflies process their food by vigorously jumping up and down on it. No wonder they have no need for fast-food franchises, strip malls or landfills!

Anyway, I picked up this picturesque postcard of the blessed ballyhooing buglugs. They look perfectly happy but don’t be deceived. In reality, they’re just a gang of glad-handing grasshoppers. They don’t play golf, eat burgers, or drink beer -- and none can frost a rock! Come to think of it, apart from the company of bugs and the elusive flop fairy, this pathetic planet has precious little going for IT!!

To put "IT" bluntly, life on “IT” is just shy of a tittynope*. The jolly green grasshoppers and the carefully manicured green fairways with sand traps as far as the eye can see certainly make for an utterly harmless world. Regrettably, without a pair of golf clubs, a dimpled white ball, and the notion that 19th hole even exists on this planet -- ”IT” is about as fun as bag of toads!

Life Lesson 42: Remember to talk to your travel agent before ever embarking on a flight of fancy to a planet called “IT” in a galaxy named “Have-a-Nice-Day”!!

__________

*"Tittynope" for you whiffling word-peckers means "a small quantity of anything left over".

If you want to know what those green, glad-handing grasshoppers from "IT" look like -- ask any four-year old, or failing that request some help from a Flying Saucer Club member.

5.6 Trillion Dollars Travel Business Is Creating Millionaires

5.6 Trillion Dollar Travel business Explodes Another 23% With No Slow Down In Sight! Entrepreneurs Cashing In!

With the Baby Boomer reaching peak spending years it's no wonder why the Travel industry is constantly breaking new records. Even those under 30 are spending there hard earned cash on traveling. "Travel Magazine"

The Baby boomers are those born between 1946-1964 and have a net worth of 78 billion dollars! That's approximately 40% of the GNP! They LOVE to travel and they love the savings we offer!

December 26, 2005 -- Its easy to see why so many people want to travel. Sun, fun, sandy beaches, exotic locations, or simply a chance to unwind. But with travel so expensive who can afford it?

Some savvy Entrepreneurs have found a way to not only save up to 75% on "ALL" travel expenses but they are making "thousands of dollars per week doing it!"

Imagine getting "unlimited lifetime" cruises, "unlimited 6 day 7" night resort packages, up to 50% discounts on hotels, condo rentals, Disney packages, car rentals, air fare, ski packages, camping packages and much more..... Imagine?

Imagine making $1000, $3000, or even $6500 for every package that gets sold and you never have to talk to "ANYONE", Imagine??

20 year seasoned Entrepreneur Matt Peck cant believe how much Money he actually saved on his travel package. After experiencing such a "great Value" Matt took it to the next level and decided to get involved in the business. Matt says its like Christmas everyday! The checks keep Rollin in and all I do is market my web site or 800 number with my special ID. I have never seen anything so duplicatable in my life.

We interviewed Matt about his previous business experience and Matt revealed he has tried an average of 15 different business's before he found one that actually worked. Matt said the problem with Network Marketing is that its not duplicatable. Even if you're a good speaker or good on the phone most people are not. When most people are confronted with a few No's they give up. And this is why over 95% of "ALL" network markers fail. Lets face it, some people just cant sell, some cant speak well, and MOST lack confidence. Matt's business has solved all those problems.

Matt says with his new travel business it takes all the selling, telling and chasing your friends and family out of the equation. Matt says he simply markets his web site or 800 number with his special ID number and his call center does all the telling and selling! Matt receives checks for a minimum of $1000, $3000, and $6500.

The key is how you market say's self made Millionaire Matt. I market through cheap classified Ad's, pay-per-click, Search engine optimization, card decks, magazine inserts, door hangers, post cards, etc..... It's fun and easy! If you just want to make and extra $1000 per week that's a NO BRAINER! With our automated site we even send out automated auto responder messages. We even give you ALL of the advertising secrets and resources. Its like a gift from God! To view a demo of his site you can view it at www.4266mp.wecloseyoursales.com

THIS BUSINESS IS AVAILABLE TO "ANYONE" , "ANYPLACE" IN THE "WORLD" ARE YOU PAYING ATTENTION????
