Photo Shoot #114, #117, #118 Miscellaneous Shots from Europe 2012
We've lumped these four photos together. They really have nothing to do with each other, that is other than they were all taken on our trip to Iceland and Norway. Our trip started with a 12 hour layover in Düsseldorf, Germany. 12 hours is just long enough to go exploring and that we did. We headed downtown in search of a beer house. Call it dumb luck, call it karma, call it great beer, we stumbled into the oldest brew house in Düsseldorf. The Brauerei Schumacher was amazing. Admittedly, I am not a linguistic champ and even though they spoke reasonable English I didn't understand quite how to order a beer. Apparently, it's just beer. All the other stuff on the menu was add ons. We got some beer, something unidentifiable to put in the beer and plates of brat. It was all incredibly tasty. We then asked if we could do a wedding dress shot. They asked us to wait 15 minutes and then excitedly lead us upstairs to the brew room for the shot. When we came down they asked us to wait again. A few minutes later another surprise. A custom labeled and poured liter bottle of beer. Having to take it on the plane, we couldn't carry it with it full so of course we finished it chanting Papa Derow's favorite German saying "Das good beer here!"

I would love to show you
a ton of great photos from the Landmannaugar trek (our complete story will be posted at www.greattrekscom shortly) with Jennifer in the dress. Sadly, like the Milford Sound trek, we had horrible weather. It could have been worse as the group after us didn't even complete their trek. That said, we snuck in one obligitory shot with the dress. We liked the candid shot of Jennifer tossing her hat to the Joints in Motion crowd we were trekking with as the requested her to let her hair down.

We had more fun at the Joints in Motion celebratory dinner at the Fjorukain Viking Village just outside of Reykavik. Hawk our waiter was a blast and totally willing to work with us. He started with a little serenaid and then moved on to the old Viking lure of plying a women with hard alcohol in the King's chair.
