Today was all about the food. I am about to explode as I sit here writing this- I will just say I have eaten way too much today. It all started in Oberwesel with a pizza from a bakery in a grocery store. I had one and had to have another, and then (because I can’t help myself) I got a danish too. Ugh!! I have been doing nothing but eating since I got here- so don’t be surprised when I come home about 500 pounds heavier.
In addition to eating, I explored Oberwesel, a town located on the Rhein river. The drive in is absolutely gorgeous. You basically drive down a big mountain-sized hill with twists and curves that peek out onto the river. The river itself is surrounded by these big green hills as well. The streets are very, very narrow and lined with cute little shops, hotels and bakeries. It was nice just to walk around and take it all in.
We also went to Luxembourg today, a teeny, tiny country bordering Germany. We were only there a couple of hours and it was also very pretty. Everyone spoke French, so I tried to remember as much as I could, but it was hard with all the German stuck in my head!! We walked all around town and then in a park area along the Rhein. It turned into an impromptu photo shoot with Jason, but we had a lot of fun. Here are some of the pictures I took:
Finally, the night ended with food. I made an all-american meal for the Germans: my mom’s meatloaf and mashed potatoes. Mhmmm-Mhmmmm good!!
We leave for London in the morning, so look forward to more posts with our adventures there!! Tschuess!!
