We leave Thursday morning. Drive to Milwaukee, bus to Chicago and 8 hours to Frankfurt. Today was a day of laundry, sorting, charging devices and packing. I usually dread this, as I have written about in the past, but now I don't stress as much about it. Plus, we are taking a carry-on size suitcase so we can have it on the plane. With that, you have limited room, and that's a good thing.
As soon as my bag was ready, I zipped it up and carried it up and down the stairs, along with my day bag
Once we land in Frankfurt on Friday morning, the plan is to take a long-distance train from the airport to Nuremberg. Nuremberg is en route to Munich anyway, so I thought it would be a good place to stop and spend a night. Then, we head to Munich, Heidelberg, Trier and Koblenz, before heading back to the Frankfurt airport for home. We aren't spending any time in Frankfurt, and I think this is a good idea, as there are more interesting places to see.
As far as I can tell, the weather looks good, with temps in the high 50s/low 60s during the day, and in the 40s in the evening. I'm glad we won't need to pack super heavy clothes.
I've also been practicing some basic German as I feel it makes the locals glad that you made an effort, Hopefully, I will impress them. Hahaha.
