Alright. I got back from Malta, was in Munich for one day and went on a little roadtrip with two friends from university again. Our initial plan had been to go somewhere “cool”, like Portugal. But, as you may know if you´ve ever tried to organise a trip with young adults, that´s easier said than done. However, we did still want to do something together. So, we jumped into my car in Munich and drove North. Our first stop was Bayreuth, a small town about two hours from Munich. It´s a picturesque town, but there isn´t much to see. Well, there is a palace called “Eremitage”, however, it´s outside of the city, and we would´ve had to walk through a park to get there. As we were kind of annoyed by the terrible weather, that didn´t happen. After a stroll, we continued our journey.
Here are some impressions of Bayreuth:
At some point during our car ride, we decided that we wanted to get to Dresden that evening. While I was driving, my friends searched for an accommodation for the night. And guess where we landed? On a boat. The owners were nice enough to let us check in at quite a late time, and thank god they did! Besides some problems we had finding the hostel, everything was great. It was very affordable, cosy and a unique experience. There´s plenty of parking available, and you can walk into the city by foot. We´re all rather petite, so the room felt cosy rather than restricting. We actually booked another night because we were so pleased. The next day was spent exploring Dresden, which is a beautiful city. At last, the sun also made an appearance, and we were three happy girls.
Some photos I took in Dresden:

The next day, we hit the road again. The weather, once again, wasn´t what he´d hoped. We walked around a bit and nearly froze to death. As lunch time was approaching, we found ourselves a restaurant offering a lunch buffet for an ok price. Afterwards, we agreed on driving back to Munich, because we really couldn´t stand the bad weather anymore. After all, being able to make such spontaneous decisions is the beauty of such a roadtrip. We drove past the Monument to the Battle of the Nations, and then headed back home.

Bye for now!
