Kristy-Ann’s Travel Diary

Sunday, 02 Jan 2005

Location: Germany

MapHi Everyone

Sorry I didn't write sooner, I haven't had access to the internet.
I have been in Germany for over a month now and I´ve been having a great time. I was going to school most of the time (even every second Saturday) but now I have 3 weeks holidays.

I've been to the Christmas Markets a few times, it was wonderful. The buildings are beautiful here, most of them have really high pitched rooves and extra rooms built into the roof. Their was a little bit of snow that stayed on the ground on Tuesday overnight, but no white Christmas and it has melted now.

Christmas was great, we celebrated the night before (its called Heilichabend - holy evening) and had a 6 course meal and opened presents. For New Year's Eve my host parents went out for a party and Felicia (my host sister), Constantin (my host brother), Nina-Laura (a friend of Felicia and I) and me stayed at home and celebrated with party food.

Yesterday, New Years Day, we went to the Autostadt, it was built for Volkswagen and there was heaps of beautiful cars and information about there design. There was an ice slope and I went down it, fun. There was old cars there and a restuarant. It was great.

Well thats about all.

Love Kristy
