Germany

Last but not least… Germany. My trip to Germany was interesting because I was with my family from both my mother’s and father’s side.

I stayed with my aunt (my father’s sister) and cousin, Arsine, who is a year older than I am, in a town called Wiesbaden, which is right next to Frankfurt, Germany.

My first day was spent at Frankfurt’s city center, mainly just walking around shopping center. Later in the day, I tried one of Germany’s famous sausages…which lived up to it’s name.

My second day in Germany was spent with my cousin from my mothers side, along with his wife and two adorable little boys. This was special because the two of us were meeting for the very first time! We spent the day in a town called Heidelberg, which is home to the oldest university in Germany, Heidelberg University. This town was just like a romantic storybook setting, with old gothic streets, including sites like the Old Bridge and Heidelberg Castle.

On the last day, Arsine, my aunt, and I spent the day in Wiesbaden. This town is famous for their six hot springs. The Kochbrunnen fountain, the town’s most famous spring, has been around since 1366, and emits hot thermal water of about 66° C used both for medical purposes and to heat the town hall.

We finished off our day with a nice stroll along the town’s river with delicious ice cream (of course) from Eiscafe am Rhein.
