My family and I traveled to Frankfurt, Berlin, and Munich in 2015. We met friends and visited museums. I kept all notes and paper in a Moleskine notebook.
Germany is surprisingly a lot like the US. For some reason I get Philly-vibes there. Maybe the cleanliness, small streets, houses in rows make me think that. Also, people there speak English clearer than most Americans.
Most people rave about the food or beer of Germany but I fell in love with museums.
While I’m a shawarma addict in any country, I loved how doner kebab stands were on every corner of Berlin. I would go back to Germany in a heartbeat just for the snacks.
