And the trip comes to an end...
As we were riding back to my apartment in Berlin, in the S-Bahn, my dad said, "I think we've taken just about every form of transportation this trip, short of commandeering our own ship." :) He was pretty close...we went by train, car, tram, subway, bike, foot (barefoot), bus, ferry, rental car... It was a lot of traveling, from Berlin to Rügen, to Hamburg, Lübeck, through Schleswig-Holstein to Amrum and back to Berlin. A tour of northern Germany. When we arrived back at my place in Berlin, there was some kind of street fest going on in the neighborhood, with live music, food and drink. We went to the Austria Restaurant for dinner, for one last good hearty German meal with good beer. Then we walked through the crowded streets and headed back home to pack. It was an amazing two weeks! Thanks so much, mom and dad, for everything! We'll have so many memories for our whole lives!
