So this past weekend, a group of 14 of us went to Munich, Germany! It was kinda a last minute decision on my part...like maybe three days before we left?! We traveled on an overnight train from Florence-Munich on Thursday night and got to Munich around 7 am. I was really excited to go to Germany because I wanted to practice my German and also see a new country that I haven't been to before. The train ride was a little loud and noisy so I didn't really that good of sleep. We had some breakfast at the train station and left our bags in the lockers. The train station was probably the nicest one that I've been to so far. We headed out to Oktoberfest after breakfast and it took us about 20 minutes or so to find it.
On Saturday, we went to the Dachau concentration in the morning. It was a very haunting experience being in that environment. There was a museum that went into great detail about the war and the various concentration camps. There was a large section of empty lots where they conducted experiments on the prisoners. They had three memorial churches, one Baptist, Catholic and Jewish.
Now unfortunately, I had a little problem on this trip..meaning my camera got left on the train. Without going into too much detail, it probably fell out of a bag that was on the floor of our cabin. I was definitely depressed about it for most of Sunday. So, I will rely on my friends for pictures from now on, so I'll have lots of options to choose from.
In other new, my travel plans have been finalized for our week break from school. Next week, the whole school is going on a field trip to Venice from the 16th-19th. Then on Friday, a group of us is flying to Athens, Greece and staying there for two days. Then we're going to an island called Santorini for two days. (supposed to be one of the most beautiful in Greece) Early Wednesday morning, we're flying to Cairo, Egypt and staying until Sunday morning. I'm so excited for this trip! I've always wanted to go to Egypt and we've got this great tour that picks us up from the airport and takes us to sites during the four days. We're obviously going to the pyramids and the Sphinx. We're also camel riding and taking a sunset felucca (Egyptian sailboat) ride on one of the nights. The prices in Egypt are really cheap! 1 US dollar=5.65 Egyptian pounds, so we'll be living like kings for once this trip!! Well, not sure how much internet I'll have while I'm gone, but hopefully I will be able to keep everyone up-to-date. Well, this weekend we're going to a chocolate festival in Perusia so that should be delicious!! See ya then
