Welcome to Germany
Welcome to Germany, a country that I have only barely begun to explore. It was because I had the wrong Indonesian visa in Bali that I ended up for a few days in Germany. Arriving in Frankfurt, it was an easy train trip to the Rhine Valley. A taste of the Rhine River was the perfect introduction to this country. The castles, towns along the river, the bike paths and dry Reisling wines left me knowing there is so much to see, do and taste!
Where would you go next in Germany? My next stop would be the cities of Berlin, Hamburg and Munich. Stay posted for guides around these cities when I eventually get there!
What about a trip to Germany around the Christmas markets or Oktoberfest? So many ideas…
This guide will be sure to help you plan out an amazing trip to Germany.
