Its sooooo adorable!!!
Ahhhh Mainau die Blumeninsel im Bodensee. What else can I say than SEHR SCHON??? Well some...haha...

Okay, so I went to Mainau with the PHD student I work for and his parents for his birtday, and it was amazing. I have never seen something so beautiful. I am not really a flower kind of gal but a whole island full of wonderful plants and flowers...who couldn't like that? I even watched a wedding and found myself going 'awwwwwww that is sooooo romantic' and that is not typical Nicole haha.

I really enjoyed playing on the playground too. It is really physics based, so I, being a physics student, found it very intrequing. There were also giant ducks and a peacock made of all flowers (i think i have pics of them up). It was fantastic!!! The view of the bodensee couldn't have been better either, it was so wonderful, and reminded me a lot of home.
I live by lake Erie in Pa, USA, so it was homey...BUT the water was MUCH MUCH cleaner than erie...much much much cleaner haha.

The water was the most amazing teal color I think I have ever seen. There was also a butterfly house that you can walk through, it was great. There were butterflies EVERYWHERE!!! I also got to feel like a bit of a star because I mentioned that I own a turtle like the one in their cage/pond and a bunch of germans were thrilled and started to ask me a ton of questions about the animals by my place. They were excited to hear about the bears, snakes, turtles, and bugs near my house. I felt really good to get to tell people about them, and I had to talk in all german too. Which made me happy because they all understood me :) I'M GETTING BETTER YAY!!! Actually all day I only spoke German, since Michaels parents do not know much English. It was a GOOOOOODDD DAY!!!!!

If you get the chance...GO TO MAINAU!!!!
