Frank in Frankfurt, Germany: Part 2

            Girls just want to have fun! We were two American girls on an adventure in the middle of a very German city– with no destination. I was grateful that Megan’s German language skills because while most Germans start learning English from a very young age, there are still quite a few Germans who are unable to speak English. With that being said, we were able to navigate the city easily, and I managed to add a few new German words to my word bank. Prost!

We spent at least 45 minutes on this bridge lol
