We missed our train to Germany and my wallet was definitely not happy about it. We had to buy tickets again and those tickets were so expensive I could have bought myself a brand new YSL wallet.
We stayed at Frankfurt and had a day trip to Heidelberg. Our first stop in Heidelberg was the castle that was built in 1214. Fun fact: the castle has this arch which, according to our tour guide, was erected overnight. It was a surprise birthday gift from Elector Frederic V to his wife Elisabeth Stuart. MORAL OF THE STORY: GET YOU A GUY WHO CAN BUILD YOU AN ARCH OVERNIGHT. After visiting the castle, we went around the old town which was very beautiful. It felt like we were in a movie.
Another fun fact: Dr. Jose Rizal trained in Heidelberg as an ophthalmologist.
After Heidleberg, we went to Römerberg for our dinner. A pretty huge dinner at that.
Well, that’s Germany! Up next: Greece.
