I couldn't have asked for a better last day in Germany. I spent it with my two favorite ladies (who I am going to miss terribly) Laura and Laura :) <3
My braid from Laura (sis)
We goofed around in Cologne and went shopping.
We had great laughs and some pretty bad vegan food,
which is unfortunate as it was their first time eating at a vegan restaurant. It's always a hit or miss with Asian vegan food. Hm, maybe next time. I told them to come visit in San Fran (when I live there of course) and I'll take them to some great places.
I got the meet the beautiful Anna, Laura's (sis) older sister. She was so nice and such a sweet heart. I'm so happy she met up with us for food.
But we did find this AWESOME vegan grocery store. Here I got some yummies to bring back to America.
The owner was super sweet!
Animals are friends not food!
As we were walking to leave we came upon this puppeter! He was a cute old man.
His friendly puppets.
Our last time in Cologne together for a while. :(
The Cathedral at night. So massive.
So Laura and Laura thought they could be sly BUT I knew they were planning some kind of dinner for me when we were finished. They kept saying how we needed to be at the restaurant by 9:00pm and they wouldn't tell me who was going to be there! So I knew something was up. It turns out they invited all the coolest people for a going away dinner at the Thai restaurant in town :) It was great to hang out and laugh and talk with the German friends I made. Every single person (and others not present) have a special place in my heart. These people definitely made my trip memorable, especially Karneval time :) :D
I'm going to miss her SOOO much!
Sisters for life <3
An interesting Thai statue.
My spring rolls. Noms.
Laura, Giulliana, Stella <3
My Scorpion cocktail
The gang (minus Laura because she was being LAME)
(L) Laura, Giulliana, Stella (sorry about being blurry!), Sophie, Inna, Ailina, Max, Katrin, Tamara, Sophie, Marleen and Me!
What a great group of people.
I got my souvenir shopping done and I still have money left over. Looks like I will be exchanging it for American money! Whoop.
Packing was easy. My clothes were clean (thanks to Laura's amazing mom) and my belongings were all together.
I'm going to miss this crazy fun country. But I will be back. I'm thinking I shall return for 2013 Karneval. Appropriate don't you think?!
This time I'll know German and surprise everyone (besides Laura haha).
My glove shrunk, extremely! Laura couldn't stop laughing at this.
All packed and ready to go.
Well Deutschland, it has been fantastic getting to know you and your wonderful people. I shall see you in a years time.
What an unforgettable trip.
See you in a few hours America.
Oh, continue to FOLLOW ME! I shall keep updating my blog when I return home. I've come to enjoy logging my activities.
My final German----->Bis Dann
