Europe is AMAZING. Everything has been quite a whirlwind for me since arriving a week and a half ago. The first weekend we took a train to Landau, which is in the western region of Germany (about an hour from the French border), to visit our friend Peter and our cousin Laura who is currently dating him :) We went to a wine festival and I have a new way to drink Rose wine! They add sparkling lemon juice to it and it tastes fantastic! We also went to the zoo and just explored the town.
When we returned to Munich, Hannah took me around the city to see all of the beautiful architecture, churches, and monuments (We also squeezed in lots of window shopping and stops at little cafes for croissants and lattes!). We also went to the Deutches Museum, which is basically a history museum for German Industry. Some of it was a bit boring (all of the technical and engine things), but I was delighted to see the exhibit for the textiles industry - I got to see all of the machines I learned about in Textiles class last fall!
Of course, since I am in Germany we have been drinking lots of beer! I've been to several beer gardens (biergartens), including the Haufbrau House of course :) I'm not really a big beer drinker but I like one called the Raddler. It has lemonade in it and is very tasty!
This past weekend we went to Paris, but it deserves a complete entry all on it's own :)
Here is one of the outfits I wore last week:
I mainly brought about 6 pieces that I have been mixing and matching (blouses, my blue skirt, and some shorts..among a few slip dresses as well) since I packed quite light!
Blouse- Max Azria/ Miley Cyrus
Faux Leather Jacket- Charlotte Russe
Faux Suede Flats- Target
