I have a habit of falling in love with the cute towns I visit. They are probably a bit too twee for some, but I have had enough of the rough edges of life for now. It can be good to have a diversion for a while, a happy escape .
The Bavarian town, Rothenburg ob der Tauber is the kind of place where, if I had the opportunity and language and wasn't a barrier, I would remove surplus tourists and toffee nosed types and place all my favourite people to live with me.
Some people find the place a little too perfect, but I like the Christmas all year round sweet appeal of the cobbles and buildings. It is true that even Cesky Krumlov has an edge, compared to this town, but I felt there was enough mystery here to stop it being too nauseating, an unidentifiable essence that can't be spoilt by an abundanceof tourists like me!
