Day 8: Perfection

Today we only had school until 12:15! YAY! Though we did have a test. 😦  However, I taught the material to myself last night and didn’t do too shabby!

After school we went to new place for lunch (gasp!) because we were just a little tired of the same thing every day. We went to this little bakery next to Kaufland and had sandwiches. Super yummy. I think I will definitely be going back there again.

We then went to Kaufland where I spent 52 cents on bread for the week!

Kaitie, Neil, and I decided to make a day trip to Konstanz because our train/bus passes get us there for free. SUCH an amazing day of wandering a beautiful city on the Bodensee, climbing church bell towers, and drinking German beer. We walked around for 6 hours. So worth it, but we are all very tired.

I am just going to post a bunch of pictures. If you are interested in seeing more, go to my flickr account. There are also a few pictures on FB that I have been tagged in. 🙂

    • I believe they were started in Paris….a couple has their names engraved on a padlock. They then lock it to the bridge and throw the key into the river (or in this case, the lake). It symbolizes their undying love. A lot of couples will do it after getting married.
