Traveling to Germany

View from the tower of St Peter's Church in Munich

Cities visited in Germany: Munich, Konstanz, and Meersburg
Days spent in Germany: 8 days

I headed to Germany recently to attend a wedding of one of my closest friends. Our friendship is unique and I definitely miss the days when we spent every weekend together while she was living in California for an internship for 7 months, but now that she is married and living in Germany, it gave me an opportunity to travel to go visit! I met Melanie 12 years ago in high school when we both participated in a school exchange program. 12 years later we are still great friends. With the boyfriend and best friend in tow, off to Germany we went!

I tend to try to travel on a budget, so overall my time in Germany wasn't too expensive, but I also don't travel extravagantly. The first night we stayed in a hostel, shared co-ed room, $26/night per person. The 5 days in Konstanz we stayed with friends, and our last night before we flew out, we splurged on a hotel, but we split it 3 ways (since I was traveling with my boyfriend and best friend), the room came out under $40 per person. 

As for transportation, I like going with buses and trains. I bought our train tickets from Munich to Konstanz (145 miles apart) ahead of time, and train fare was only $26 a person. If I had waited and bought them day of, it would've been closer to $50 a person.

The wedding was so much fun! It was also the longest wedding celebration I have ever been too, it started at 3 pm and went till 4 am!

We also took a day trip to Meersburg with my friend Tessa and got to explore an old castle. It was great seeing old friends and catching up, I hadn't been back for 7 years.

Here are some photos from our time in Germany.... after a week in Germany, Tizzy and I jetted off to Croatia for 4 nights, but that's gonna be a separate post.

Until next time Germany!
