Thanksgiving in Munich, Germany

It's been a while since I have posted, so I am a little behind. Over Thanksgiving we traveled to Munich, Germany. It was beautiful and already decked out for Christmas. The people were very friendly and we fit in perfect, which was great for a change. After four days of traveling around we got on the wrong train and missed our flight back to Sicily. What a mistake! The Italian airline would not help us and said, "I would suggest you get on a computer and book new flights". So we lost out on those tickets and walked over to Air Berlin and bought new tickets to come home. In the end we spent an extra $800...but still had an amazing Thanksgiving.

I think Santa lives in Germany...

  1. Cool pictures of the surfers. When we were there no one was surfing for some reason. Its amazing how its an endless wave. We could use one of those here in Sicily!
