If Princess Elisabeth von Thurn and Taxis ever asks for my hand I will tell her that with a little more sweet talking I might be had.
I've had the Thurn und Taxis beer on a number of occasions. Have you had the little bratwursts at the grill down by the river in Regensburg - the oldest bratwurst joint in the world? Nice town, Regensburg.
