My third stop on my way to school was Offenburg, Germany. Funny story. Actually we were planning on going to Munich, but we didn’t buy our train tickets until the day of (and therefore didn’t know the times of the trains going to Munich) and ended up missing our train. We could then either stay another night in Paris, or just get on the next train that was going somewhere (anywhere) in Germany. Obviously from the title of this blog, we chose the latter.
Paris was my favorite city, but we did want to see Germany. Offenburg was a cute little town that was kind of on the border of Germany and France. The other exciting thing about all of this was that we had no idea where we were staying once we got to Germany. Our train got in at like 11 at night. We got out of the train station and walked across the street to the only thing that was open, which was the pub, and hoped they spoke English. They pointed us down the street to a hotel and luckily it was a pretty nice hotel, but not too overly priced. Basically we ended up staying in Germany for less than 24 hours, but it was definitely a grand adventure.
