Fun Facts and Tips
The main reason that I went to Germany was to visit a friend of mine (Susi) who I met while she was a foreighn exchange student at my high school. Germany was a great trip because I went with a close friend of mine and we got to meet Susi’s family and see the town she grew up in. My friend and I went on several day trips while Susi was in school so we were able to see many of Germany’s cities. I am really glad that we planned a trip to the Dachau Concentration Camp, which is about two hours outside of Munich, because although it was a very disturbing and sorrowful place I thought it was very interesting to be able to witness a piece of history that made up a huge part of WWII. I was in Germany for 10 days and I went during the summer of my senior year of high school.
The itinerary for Germany was a little less formal since our days were not pre-planned and we were responsible for how we spent our time. Also, because I made the big mistake of not keeping a thourough journal I can not tell you specifically what we did during each day but I can tell you the cities and the things we saw!
We were there during the Euro 2008 final!
