I’m going to change up the style of this blog post since I spent so much time in Germany. Instead of going day by day I’m just going to list out the things I did and put up some fun pictures. I hope you enjoy it!
Please let me know what you think in the comments below.
DISCLAIMER: Most pictures of food are accompanied by a nice, cold, refreshing beer. Before you judge me for that, just keep in mind that beer was cheaper than water. I’m just trying to be economical 😉

On the walking tour we learned that some of the cities around Munich have these poles. If someone steals your city’s pole you have to throw them a party to get it back. Apparently one year the police stole one of the city’s poles and then when someone called to report it stolen, they just laughed and so the city had to throw them a party to get it back! – Munich, Germany
We were shown an area where the Nazi’s would stand and make people do the Hitler salute before they could pass through. Some people didn’t want to do that so they took a different path instead. Some people were sent to concentration camps simply for walking down this path. – Munich, Germany
