From Ireland to Austria Series: Nūrnberg
This is from a series originally posted on my original blog: Seefahrer Thayer. While I don't recommend it, you can view the original posts here. Because the content had value and useful tips I've decided to repost them here, however, they've since been heavily edited and updated.
So, yesterday is a perfect example of why I hate booking ahead. While it was so relaxing all day knowing no matter what, I had a place to sleep, I ended up searching for an hour for the stupid place. It was aggravating knowing I HAVE to find that one.
That being said, it was nice, even though it was 80-something when I was trying to go to bed- with all the windows open and no fans- I still managed to sleep well.
When I got there, I met a girl from Chattanooga, and we went walking around the town. It's a cute little place. A decent helping of churches, shopping, bread stores... oh yeah and they have a red light district! On the street my hostel was on... Leah (from Chatt) left early, and as a result I got a bit lost, and stumbled into it, at first I was just wondering why girls were at a bar wearing bikinis and then I got deeper into it, haha. There was also a wine festival of sorts? Which included live Mexican music? But I got a wiener and bread with mustard- sehr gut!
I came home early to plan where I should stay the next few days, being as the weekend is coming up and I don't feel like staying in train stations (though the last one was so nice). So, after about 2 hours of aggravated planning I decided on Lindau. There was nothing conveniently located on the border of Germany that was a decent price... so I settled for Lindau, a place no one's heard of.
Looks like Friday and Saturday night I'll be staying in Milan! And I'll figure out Sunday later.
Oh! I forgot to mention. Turns out that Nazi protest thing in Dresden was for the 17th of June (duh) and when I realized, I was pissed I didn't stay in Berlin- I'm sure it would've been awesome there.
