In planning the trip, there were a couple things I discovered.
Frankfurt and Berlin have quite a bit of distance between them.
We were going to have some long distances to cover at the beginning of the trip in order to have a more leisurely end of the trip.
We were only going to travel about half the trip on our own before meeting up with my friend.
The boyfriend wanted as much downtime as possible while I wanted to see as much as possible.
All of this made for some interesting planning in order to accomodate everyone’s ideas and requests, and we were lucky in that my friend is very easy going and didn’t have many requests once she joined up with us. She was just along for the ride, and it’s awesome to have a travel companion like that, especially when you are me and overly plan everything.
We saw and experienced so much, it would take days to recount on here. So I’ll give a photo recap of the trip instead.
December 29-30: CLE to Frankfurt to Berlin
December 31-January 1: Berlin
January 2: Berlin to Dresden to Nuremburg
January 3: Nuremburg to Munich
We were sad to head out of Nurembrrg, but we had to catch a train to Munich for the second half of our trip where we were meeting up with our friend. The days seemed to go by at the right pace, but everything was still over so quickly. Berlin, Dresden and Nuremberg were amazing, but all of Bavaria was still ahead…
