Snow Day: München Style

I must say that picturesque snow, tired students and an excited tour guide was the best way to start our first full day in München. As we began loading the bus this morning around 9:30 am, the snow started to fall. At first it fell so softly and beautifully, then it became more fierce and […]

The Last Journey

Munich, the city of angels, wait no that’s not right. Munich, the city of the past; a strange but fitting name. As we soon found out today. Bavaria is something of a special place here in Germany. For most people living in the United States it is the image of Germany that comes to mind. […]

After leaving Berlin this morning in a tiny bus, we have arrived in the medieval city of Rothenburg. As we were entering the city, you could see the wall surrounding the city by our hotel. We ate a traditional South German dinner with a pork meatloaf and potatoes, along with a dumpling soup and salad. […]
