Things in Germany are wonderful. Absolutely loving being abroad. It is our group’s last night in Mainz, and I am a bit sad. I am in love with this city and am sure I will miss it. Tomorrow is Stuttgart, where we will meet up with that city’s library school. I am quite excited for that bit.
I wandered Mainz today by myself. Window shopping and getting used to speaking minor German (Ja!) was perfect. I get that whole “Eat, Pray, Love” thing…being abroad has shown a lot of strength I never knew in myself. I love being able to take in my surroundings, not be in a rush, and learning about another culture. It has been a blessing.
So, next is Stuttgart then to Munich. Off to more German adventures, including: watching the Man U/Barcelona game at a bar, tour of the BMW museum, and finding a few more souvenirs to bring back (especially for you Tiff!).
Erin has been a wonderful travel buddy. We took in a few of the sights before we left to go back to the hotel tonight and we’re ready to explore more tomorrow!
Off to bed for the evening, gotta get up super early and make it to the train station.
