Freiburg Day Five - Old Town

A travel blog entry by lafite


... coming up, what do I do? Do I climb all the way back UP to the top and wait for them to come up? Do I tell them to go back down? Well they speak German and I don't, so telling them to do anything is difficult and sure as **** I wasn't going to turn around and start to climb up this $&@"?!& Munster again. So... I kept going down the stairs. There were little kids flying all over the place. They saw me coming down and then when I didn't ...

Freiburg Day Three - Cable Car and Steinwasen Park

I did good, I mean I still have quite a bit of space in both bags for overly priced cheesy souvenirs. But I don't take part in such stereotypical touristy ...

Spring Has Sprung!

A travel blog entry by caylameinert


... this is one of the only times I get to enjoy these trails. All of us in my program have been trying to take any chance we can get to take advantage of the beautiful town and weather. Last Friday, we convinced all of our German teachers to have class outside. In this short 1 hour period, I managed to get sunburt!!
