Don’t mention Germany to me. EVER. Just kidding.
We missed our train to Germany and my wallet was not happy about it. We had to buy tickets again, obviously 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. Hahaha! 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.
