Is the only word I know in German.

Goal for tomorrow: learn how to say “can I please have tap water?”

Walked almost 9 miles today and spent at least 10 euros on water.

Can’t escape the heatwave, even in Berlin.

Where Christmas is Done Best: Germany!

5 Jan

My final trip of the semester was to Germany for three days to visit my friend Jeff in Eichstatt and my friend Jess in Munich. I flew into Munich on my first day there and explored the city with Jeff and his friends. On day two, Jeff and I took the train to Nuremberg (Eichstatt is conveniently located halfway between Munich and Nuremberg) for Christmas markets, Nazi parade grounds and the city’s old historic center. On day three Jeff showed me around Eichstatt and I took the train back to Munich to meet up with Jess. Here’s a three day re-cap of my German adventure!
