    OMG…you’re going to have so much fun.

    Out of all those places, which one’s the most scenic?

    Also, cooking lessons & a dinner cruise?!?

    …I envy you, my friend. πŸ˜‰

  2. bchai says:

    Ooops, my bad…

    this was a PREVIOUS trip. LMAO…

    Still, heading back anytime soon?

    No, wait, save your money for Europe. Visit ME! (evil laugh)

    Hehe, I had to take a break from all the shopping, hence the lessons and cruise! I do regret not going to more temples, but I just tell myself that gives me the reason to go back. And I will definitely go back!

    Europe! Yesss, I’m already planning on that. If I can discipline myself enough, I just *might* make it before you have to leave Germany lol But yeah, that would take a lot of planning and research. But I will succeed! *shakes fists*

    I’ll be waiting. We’ll only be about an hour (maybe less than that) from Frankfurt, so it makes it convenient for our future visitors. πŸ™‚

    Man, I do hope you make it out there! It’ll be awesome.
