Welcome to July and the beautiful people who joined me.
The weather was very strange this month. One day it's sun and the next, rain.
I hope you had a nice day regardless of the weather.
June 10th: Seattle
I was on holiday for a month. "Big-T" and "Little-T" Snyder and mama Jane were the reasons. I don't feel old, I feel good and proud!
I am touring a little bit less this month. I have some intensive teaching assignments. Plus, I am writing for my next album that I plan to record in the fall.
So every group this month is especially special.
July 5th: Neuschwanstein
What a great day! This picture was taken outside on the steps to the restaurant Hotel Müller. We were a small group speaking numerous languages. Thanks for the nice day!

The weather was nice in the morning at Linderhof castle. However the afternoon weather turned ugly. There were a few unhappy guests but most of us made the best of the day.

The Coburn's were kind enough to write. Thanks!

Just before lunch, this is where we park. Our driver Erol is in the background waving. It was nice weather until the time we came out of the castle. It wasn't that bad though. It was a very polite and multi-cultural group. Thank you.

Today was a lot of fun! There were lovely ladies, scholars and more than a few "characters." It was nice weather for a pretty savvy bunch. Danke!
My apologies to you all for not being a guide waving a flag, umbrella, sunflower or a furry animal impaled on a stick. This guide kept his tour group's colors flying proudly all day.

Pick a language - it was likely represented on my tour today. What great weather! Nice people! And at the time of this photo - they were HUNGRY! Thank you all for a nice day.
You, my friend, are a gentleman!

It was a pleasant Saturday until a thunder storm hit. We stayed pretty much dry but it was a storm that hit very quickly without much warning. It was a tough group and the weather didn't seem to bother them too much. Thanks!
The coming storm.

The day started out a little bit confusing. We had thought we had the need for two buses but instead only one. I got to work and my friend and guide Charlie got to go home. I am glad I worked. It was a great day. The weather was threatening but we were ok. Thank you for coming.
This was the threatening sky. But we were lucky.
Team Robert wins water.
