The last week of July, Jeongsu and I finally got to go to Germany together where he met my family for the first time. It was also his first time going to Europe and his third time going abroad after studying in California and visiting me in Beijing (where he proposed to me…). We had an incredible week in Germany (which was obviously too short) and visited lots of places in Southern Germany.
Enjoy this photo diary of our trip together 🙂
Journey: Seoul – Frankfurt – Munich
We had the opportunity to fly Lufthansa’s premium economy class for our flight from Seoul to Frankfurt – 11 hours nonstop!
First Day at Home
My hometown is a village of 1,500 people about 1 hour from Munich. It’s very quiet but now I have learned to appreciate just that!
The most famous sight in southern Germany: Neuschwanstein castle, also referred to as the “Disney castle”.
Augsburg – My Hometown
Even though Augsburg is technically not my hometown village, it’s the next largest town and the place where I went to school for 2 years.
Therme Erding – Europe’s Largest Waterpark
In a suburb of Munich lies Europe’s largest waterpark with a selection of different spa pools and fast slides!
Ulm is a great city full of history and home to the tallest church in the world, called the Ulmer Münster, which we climbed up on!
Munich – Home of the Beer
Munich has to be my favorite city in Germany: it has beer, great food and is simply beautiful! A visit to the famous Hofbräuhaus is a must!
Stay tuned for the next posts about what to see and do in southern Germany! 🙂
