Aching for Aachen

While in Brussels, we met a couple guys at our hostel from Australia. We met up with them in Amsterdam too, they were cool. They suggested I go to Germany with them in their rental car, while it seemed like a somewhat stupid idea, I went for it. I got to check off two of my goals (ride on the autobahn and do something that terrifies me a little). My friend from Missouri, Allison, lives in Aachen, Germany and they agreed to drop me off there, at the small price of Doritos and Red Bull (I'm discovering all sorts of cultural similarities). They stayed in Aachen one night and I went exploring with them while Allison was in class. I had a great time and it was nice to see a familiar face. I'm learning good things can come from spontaneity.
Blurry car shot with my new friends. And the only photographic evidence I was on the Autobahn.

Beautiful church in Aachen.

This beer was made in a church, so we appropriately called it "church beer."

German flag shots, I promise I'm not an alcoholic. 

Ice cream for dinner!


  1. I love that you clarify that you are not an alcoholic with pictures of shots!
    Which side of the car was the steering wheel on? I hope on the left, because that's the guy who appears to have his eyes on the road.

  2. It sounds like you're having so much fun and doing crazy things. I love reading about your travel fun.
