Germany !?

Monday, July 22nd, 2013

Guten Tag!! Alemania (or Germany) was great! I went to visit my oldest brother, Herbbie, and his family!  So I left Friday by plane and Stuttgart is such a big airport that we had to get off the plane and take a bus to the terminals.  That was new and different! I also, felt like the president coming out of the plane by stairs ! imageAnyways, Renee (Herbbie’s wife), Courtney (Herbbie’s daughter), Monica (Renee’s daughter), and Chamberlain (Herbbie and Renee’s son) were waiting for me at the airport!  That was great!  We first went to the military base and met Herbbie there!  It’s crazy not seeing them for like 2 years and now being with them, so unreal but exciting.  Then we went to this beer garden, which only happens during the summer because it’s outside.  Other times the place is shut down.  It was such a beautiful afternoon, and  apparently this summer has been hotter than normal, even thought it was around the 80s.  I ordered a sausage thing and a Mezzo Mix drink, which is coke and orange Fanta mixed together.  It was so good, and I do not drink soda, but when in Germany!  Also, baby Chamberlain is the cutest thing ever!imageimage

imageI learned Herbbie and I had a lot in common.  We love Europe and how advanced legally and economically.  Also, how efficient they are due to age, because America is a baby, essentially! One difference, is when the economy goes bad Germany doesn’t lay off people because the shortage in money but they decrease everyone else’s salary and no one gets laid off.  I like that idea, but that’s my opinion!  And Germany is a quite hilly country, not mountainous but hilly!  But that night we had some family time by watching a movie and facetiming dad!

Saturday began with waking up to the smell of BACON!!!  Now y’all know I love me some bacon!  So that was exciting, and I had tea with my breakfast, that was good.  Reminds me of home.  Also, just sitting at a table with family and reminiscing!  Herbbie told me he had a collection of fish and I began to notice all these mini fish sculptures or paintings, it was kind of strange! After breakfast we headed to the Zoo and we got lost at first but we finally made it!  I haven’t been to a zoo in so long I don’t know what’s exotic or different.  Therefore, don’t ask!image

We ordered in that night because we were too tired and a mess to go out. But I ordered Schnitzel, I had that in high school, but this was good even though it was fast food stuff!  Then Sunday I woke up to Herbbie making breakfast and we took a few more pictures and I had to leave for Bilbao!  Wahh, it was so nice being with family.  It is also scary how similar Herbbie and dad are.  They had the same mannerisms and the same attitude to certain things!  Like father like son I guess!?  Love them so much!image

Also, I saw these mountains on the plane! Strange!
