Traveling to many people seems scary. In fact, I used to be nervous about all sorts of things. People have tried to put the fear in me about driving in a foreign country, walking around at night, getting pick-pocketed, losing my passport and a slew of other things. I have decided to write about all the things I’m not scared about (and why) when it comes to traveling. You can call me naive or ignorant, but here’s my honest opinion about things I’m not worried about.
We embarked on an ambitious week-long road trip from Munich to Berlin, with stops along the way in different Bavarian towns, the Austrian Alps, Martin Luther sites and the sleek city of Berlin. It was a whirlwind, but a very exciting and beautiful way to discover Germany. If you’re looking for a fantastic German road trip, I would definitely recommend it.
October 31, 2017 marks the 500th anniversary of the day Martin Luther nailed the 95 theses on the door of Castle Church in Wittenburg. It was not a defiant moment, necessarily, but what it lead to was the Protestant Reformation and years of religious wars. More importantly, however, it lead to the Bible being translated into the modern language of the day where anyone could have access to the scriptures (not just the clergy). It was exciting for us to see some of the important sites of Martin Luther in Germany this March.
One of the reasons I started this blog was to share my travel successes and failures with others. If I learn something the hard way, I love to be able to share information that may help someone else avoid it. That being said, it’s been hilariously fun to write out some of the worst mistakes I’ve made when it comes to travel. Not a “how to” post or anything (unless you want to call it a “how to fail”). Just a “let’s laugh at my expense” sort of post. And if you’ve made some major travel blunders, don’t worry, you are not alone!
