We spent the day today traveling to Bremen. We left Paris around 1pm and arrived in Köln at around 4:45. We had an hour before we switched trains so Sarah and I decided to sit down and relax for awhile. Of course we were in Germany so we had to stop by a little food place at the train station and have two large beers and a pretzel. For some reason I was so excited just to be back in Germany. Just getting off the train and being in the train station was awesome for me. I feel more comfortable here for some reason, maybe because I can kind of read the language and knowing this is where all of my family is from. Our next train left at 6:15 and we arrived in Bremen at around 9:15pm. My Oma, cousin Anne and her father Clemens were all there to pick us up. My Oma ran up to me and gave me a huge hug. Everyone was so excited for us to come, and it made the trip that much better. We were are staying at Anne's house which is about 45 minutes from the train station in Böhnrechtern. When we got there everyone was still awake so we made a couple pizzas and just talked. They told me since I was in Deutschland now I had to speak German...I might be in trouble.
