So I LOVE Germany!
I had never been there before this trip, and to say I fell in love with that country would not be an understatement.
Such beautiful countryside…. well what you could see anyway as you whizzed by at 150KM (or more) on the Auotbahns. I was a bit nervous to drive in Germany, but our little Peugeot which had great “get up and go” was more than capable of holding her own with ALL the fancy beautiful cars in Germany. NO ONE drives a beat up car in Germany….. I honestly mean NO ONE! Everywhere you look its Mercedes, Audi, BMW, Bentley, Ferrari….. the list goes on!
I quickly got over my driving nerves, as everyone seems to know “their” speed limit and drives in the aproppriate lanes. “My” speed limit was max 140km/hr…. Mikes was higher, so yes he got us there “faster”. It is crazy that you can be in you car driving at 160km/hr and be passed like you are standing still. Some of those cars must have been doing close to 200km/hr.
The people in Germany were so nice. Everywhere we went we were greeted with smiles. If they were holding doors for the kiddies and I (and the huge double stroller), helping to show us how to use an automated machine to pay for something, or helping to read a menu, the people we encountered on our day to day activities were always amazing.
The food was delish although we didnt eat German food everynight! Brodie was pretty happy with his “hotdogs”, and both kiddies are pretty happy that they can get french fries. We had our last dinner in Heidelberg at a FANTASTIC Italian restaurant.
The Euro 2012 is on while we are vacationing here in Europe, and Germany is playing FANTASTIC! Brodie and I have them pegged to win it all……
GO GERMANY GO!
Heidelberg….. a beautiful little town, that made a huge impression on me.
Germany – what’s not to love!
