    I visited Speyer, Germany with some friends.

    It was nice there. Their landmarks and women are beautiful. I went to museums and cathedrals and of course, restaurants. Their alcohol beverages are stronger than America's. Thats a story for another day. :-) I want to visit again!

    Currently on exchange in Sweden,

    so when my best friend told me that she was coming to Germany to visit her mom, I had to make the trip to see her! I had a great couple of days in Munich, from clubbing and sightseeing to eating some good traditional Bavarian dishes.
