I don’t talk about it all that much on here because I’ve never had the motivation to go back to find good pictures from my trip. It was also eight years ago, so it’s not super fresh in my brain. I finally decided to take on this task and share some pictures from my first trip abroad.
It was two weeks in Germany and I went with my German class. We went to Rothenburg Ob Der Tauber, Garmisch Partenkirchen, Munich, and Dachau. I stayed with a family for five or six days in Bodnegg outside of Ravensburg. They didn’t have a TV and it was actually kind of exciting not having one. I actually started reading there.
We took a couple trips to Ravensburg and one to Ulm. We climbed the tallest church there with a whopping 768 steps and they were all spiral. I didn’t know what it was like to be drunk then, but I imagined it was like walking straight after all those steps.
I saw the naked alien in Munich. I ate my first donner kebab. I ate my weight in Nimm 2 candy. I spent a day in the alps with perfect weather. I learned to explore all areas of a town, not just one direction of it. I went to the Christmas store in Rothenburg like, four times and saw something new each time. I walked around the city on the wall. I found out I love spaetzle. And I also found out sheep’s cheese is delicious.
I had a lot of fun that trip and the more I read about Germany, the more I want to go back, especially to Bavaria becuase of all the awesome day trips from Munich. If you’re planning a trip to Germany, this is a great guide to help you get started. I’d like to do a few more posts on my time in Germany, but I’m not 100% sure what specifically. Is there anything specific you’d like to read about?
Have you been to Germany? Where did you go? What would you like to read about my time there?

Wow…that is some incredible photography! Really makes me want to visit.
Thank you! It’s wonderful there!
Great photos Megan! I visited last year for the first time since 2006! It is a very photogenic country!!
Thank you! Very cool! I would love to go back and take even more pictures, now that I know what I’m doing haha
I definitely need to add Germany to my never ending bucket list. I have a ton of ancestors from places like Heidelberg, Hessen and other smaller towns in those areas. What’s the best way to travel within Germany?
I would love to visit Heidelberg! I went with a group from my high school, so everything was planned out and we had a bus. but I think if I was doing it myself now I would either go by train/bus or try and do a road trip (I love road trips) if I was going with other people. I think buses and trains would prbably be the best option, though
Okay…this totally worked on me hahah. When do I get to go back to Germany??
Haha right? I’ve been wanting to go back for so long!
Beautiful photos. I love Germany. Such lovely places to visit and see.

your photos are amazing! I love Germany so much- the people, the food, the architecture! I’d love to see some of your itinerary ideas as I’ve only been to Berlin and Cologne so far.
Thank you! I would definitely make sure to visit Rothenberg and Garmisch! Take the cable car up the Zugspitze, I think that’s in Garmisch. I also really liked Ulm and the Ravensburg area. I went with a group for school so I didn’t actually plan anything there, but I loved it all, and Munich!
Such lovely pictures! I am yet to step foot into Germany, hopefully someday soon!
Thank you! It’s wonderful!
