We were all glad to see Rostock and it wasn’t difficult when you have wonderful guides that live locally (Carolin Pügge and Arron Kochanowicz)!  Rostock is a beautiful town that sits on the Baltic city.  We found the people their to be a great deal like Omahans.  Everyone was very friendly there and we got a chance to walk by the sea.  We all got soaked on a sea swell and then needed to dry off.  We had a wonderful dinner by the sea.  Looking out on the sail boats.  We strolled around the city and visited their English garden did a bit of shopping.  We also went wiki waki woo cocktail bar that had a rather large and exceptional list of absinthe cocktails.  It was very nice of Caroline and Aaron to spend time with us and show us their city we had a wonderful time there it was a beautiful area.  To be honest I don’t think we saw anywhere in Germany that wasn’t beautiful and full of history.  Rostock has a rather interesting public fountain.  Arron cooked us all up a wonderful dinner and breakfast.  Rostock was wonderful and we were glad we were able to share it with our friends!

Regensburg was awesome this small town is not only beautiful but full of history.  This city has been around since the Roman (90 AD) time and is the Capital of Bavaria.  Regensburg is also where Pope Benedict XVI used to teach theology.  We were exceptionally lucky to have Stefanie Brey and her mom Dagmar, and her father Rinehart as our tour guides and hosts. They were exceptional hosts it was wonderful for them to share their insite and perspectives on germany.  They even set up a special tour of St. Peter Cathedral for us.  We were able to travel to the top of the Cathedral and it was a wonderful view on an exceptionally beautiful day!  It was nice of Sébastien to show us around the church.  We will never forget that tour.  The Cathedral is the most important Gothic Church in southern Germany.  We also visited Walhalla a unique reproduction of the Parthenon. Regensburg also has a rich history it was an imperial city in the Holy Roman Empire.  “From 1663 to 1806, the city was the permanent seat of the Reichstag of the Holy Roman Empire.”-wikipedia.  We actually visited some of the buildings that were present in medieval times.  Regensburg was not as war torn as the rest of Germany in WWII so much of the architecture is very old and maintains it original state.    Regensburg also has wonderful food we enjoyed the traditional Bavarian food.  Regensburg also has lots of nice pubs.
