#FBF: Germany in January

Two years ago, a friend asked me if I would go with her on a travel course during interterm. For those of you who don’t know what interterm is, at Chapman, it’s held during the month of January and you are able to take one class. My friend explained that we could take German 101 in Germany and we would finally have the chance to travel outside the US. After getting permission from my parents, I told her that of course I would go with her!

Something I neglected to think about until after I put a down payment on the trip was the fun fact that I would be going to Germany… January…..which means there would be snow….. and lots of it! Now, I’m not much of a cold weather person, which is why I moved to Southern California for college, so I had to prepare myself for this huge change in climate. I hadn’t been to the snow since I was a kid so didn’t own any coats, shoes, thermals, etc. After a few shopping trips and a quick pep talk, I was able to stay warm and I the time of my life! During that trip, I caught a travel bug and can’t wait to get back out there to explore the world! So, here’s is a travel diary depicting my time in Munich, Germany and Salzburg, Austria.
