Auf Wiedersehen Deutschland- Time to cross the English Channel

This leg of my trip was one of the best because I spent it with my family and one of my freunds ūüôā While, I was only able to see some parts of Deutschland, every part was extremely beautiful. ¬†From what I saw, it is generally a clean, happy and healthy place.¬†Germany has made a…

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…

Restaurant Review: Hanz und Franz 6/10 stars

Bratwurst and Sauerkraut (Megan’s dish): Wurst means sausage, which is one of the main food staples of German culture. Megan liked it! Frankfurter Wurstchen and Sauerkraut (Mine): Frankfurt is home of the Frankfurter,¬†the famous sausage. A frankfurter is a thin, boiled sausage of pure pork in a special casing.¬†There was really nothing special about it…

Frank in Frankfurt, Germany

¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† Traveling turns you into a storyteller. I had the chance to create one with my Georgia Law buddy, Megan, who was also in Germany at the moment! We were only in town for a few hours, but we experienced at least a week’s worth of memories from a pride parade, wedding,…

N√ľrnberger Castle and Festival

By this point in my trip, I felt as though I had been experienced one big history lesson–which was great because I love history. ¬†See the video below for some clips of this historical city. I muted the sound due to quality concerns.¬†N√ľrnberger, or Nuremberg held great significance during the Nazi Germany era. Direct Souce…

Rothenberg, Germany: Part 3 (Christmas and Chocolate)

The best part about all of the sights this town had to offer, though, were the Christmas related shops. My cousins especially enjoyed them. I, however, was unable to snap pictures in some of the best shops because the Germans want to hide their Winter Wonderlands ¬†(just kidding).   In the Lindt chocolate shop, we…

Restaurant Review: Doner Kebap in Germany 9/10 stars

“Abiyet¬†Olsun” is the Turkish phrase for Bon Appetit, which directly translates as “Good appetite.” In English, however, it is often used as a salutation for someone who is about to eat. While we were in Rothenburg my aunt made it a point to introduce me to this delicious German/Turkish equivalent of a fast food meal….

Rothenburg, Germany: Part 2

¬† ¬†¬†When I finally made it to Germany, my family gave me a wonderful gift: a Beer stein, or steinzeug. I have used it many times since, as a coffee cup, and as a reminder of my great trip to Germany. Steinzeug, or “Stoneware” is a traditional German cup.I saw this souvenir throughout the town…

Rothenburg, Germany: Part 1

Picturesque Cobblestone streets, Bavarian architecture, and flower-filled window boxes comprise the medieval town of Rothenburg. Once, this town welcomed foreign dignitaries, but now it welcomes international visitors! ¬†Rothenburg is rooted in tradition, and its local economy is sustained by the tourism industry as a result. The Tauber Valley vineyards that surround this town also contribute…

Restaurant Review: McDonalds in Germany

After watching a few documentaries on McDonalds a few years ago, I had decided not to eat from here ever again. However, my aunt was really excited about showing me how the McDonalds company operates in Germany…with good reason.

On my way to Deutschland

Next stop: Deutschland. Germany is a large and extremely beautiful country, and I only saw a small part of it.

Old Heidelberg Review 5/10 stars

  When in Germany you do like the Germans…or in this case, the German-Americans. There were plenty of local eateries in Helen, but my friends and myself were interested in finishing our German day with some German cuisine. We stumbled upon “Old Heidelberg,” which operates as a restaurant upstairs and a pub on the main…
