This past Saturday we went on an adventure to Heidelberg, Germany. The castle in Heidelberg is actually the first place that we traveled after coming to Germany. We were really excited to go back! We got to ride a train there, got to use a bus and a tram getting to and from the train station, road on a boat cruise on the Neckar River, got a tour of the main town area, rode a cool tram up to the castle, and got to tour the castle! It was a long, busy day!
This particular trip was probably the most eventful of all trips we’ve ever taken. Mostly because our back pack got left on our first train. I won’t mention any names, but I have a particularly forgetful husband. 😉 Thankfully we were able to recovered our fully intact, nothing stolen back pack the next day. However, it was extremely stressful because both our wallets, both our keys, my phone, a nice stash of cash, our diapers and wipes, sunscreen, snacks, and water were all that back pack. Thankfully Andy’s Dad had money, we live close enough to the train station in Wiesbaden to walk home, the tour guide hooked me up with some German diapers and wipes, and we could pay a lock smith to unlock our house for us. Lots. Of. Fun.
Another really awesome perk of our trip was that it was 90+ degrees. Not exactly the best touring weather. We were sweating buckets all day long. And then, another fun part of Germany is that most places do not believe in A/C. When we got onto the tram to head back to the train station at the end of the day we might as well have been riding in a sauna. The first train we rode on out of Heidelberg didn’t have A/C and the window closest to us was broken. THANKFULLY the last train we rode did have A/C because i very well might have died had it not.
Other than all that craziness we all had a really nice trip together. Heidelberg is such a beautiful area!
All in all, despite all the extra chaos and heat, we had a really great time in Heidelberg! Now on to more adventures! If you want to see more pictures from our time in Heidelberg you can view the entire album HERE on our photo share site.
