Germany

It’s been almost 4 years since I’ve been there. But every time I go through these photos, it’s like Germany is calling me.

Both of my parents were stationed there through the army many years ago, but I had the chance to go because my brother was also stationed there through the army. I had the opportunity to stay with them for 2 weeks.

We strolled around Ansbach, where he lived at the time, and saw the absolutely breathtaking architecture that was there and enjoyed our Döners. If you don’t know what Döners are, I kind of imagine them as pulled pork sandwiches only it can be with other types of meat, some sort of (delicious) sauce, and coleslaw at times. I’m a vegan now so I wouldn’t be able to eat it again, but it was one of the best things my taste buds had the pleasure of tasting.

While we were walking around Ansbach we spotted a church, even though it was hard not to spot.

There was this amazing, gigantic organ inside and I could only imagine what beautiful noises came out of it. After doing some research online, it was built from 1736 to 1739 and was restored in 2004 at a cost of 1.5 million euro. It was the largest and most prestigious organ in the region of Franconia at the time.

The rest of the church was just as astonishingly beautiful and made me feel like I was walking into the past.

We also had the opportunity to travel to Rothenburg and visit the Christmas market over there. When it gets more towards Christmas, it’s a lot more extravagant but it was still just as amazing walking through during November.

A lot of the shops were filled with little Christmas knick knacks making me feel like a little kid in a candy shop.

This trip made such an impression on me that I remember telling myself that I would live here for the rest of my life. It was such an amazing experience and one of those trips I have to make again in the future.
