We spent a week visiting our friend Toby whom we met in Ecuador. He lives in Frankfurt, Germany.
He was our local tour guide which made an amazing experience.
We weren't really planning on going to Germany originally, but you can't pass up the opportunity to stay at someone's home and get shown around.
The scenery was beautiful and we did lots of wining and dinning.
In fact, we became very acquianted with the expression "Prost!" which is equivalent to "Cheers!".
We even got to sneak in a visit with another German friend that we met in Ecuador, the lovely Bianca!
We toured some castles.
Amazingly, these were some of the first castles we toured that actually looked how I would imagine they would.
They were very different from the palaces of Spain.
Heidelberg was one of my favourite German cities.
We visited some wineries and went to a wine festival.
It was great to see our friends and meet some new ones! We had a nice little taste of Germany and would definitely like to go back!
