Welcome to the Land of Einstein

Welcome to the Land of Einstein

Germany was just one of the amazing countries I have visited here in Europe. I spent few days there and was hosted by my German friend. Despite the short span of time, Silke and I did a lot of stuff including walking and running just to catch the intercity trains. Twice we did almost miss the train- just when we stepped in, the train doors closed and the railway tracking began.

Historic Germany has much to offer including mountains, marvelous scenery, picturesque villages and castles. The best time to travel there is between May and September. I should have thought about this. And once again, I realized that I’ve travelled in the edgy season- windy, downy-dark, foggy, dry autumn. The weather didn’t hinder us though from enjoying the outdoor bustles such as visiting cafes, strolling and shopping.

Instead of putting the narration down, I think it is better to mount some photos.

Since last week, I’ve been whining about the pain in my left leg and thigh. Having been to the hospital with all the scans/x-ray, I fret that there’s something wrong with my leg. Only the jogging, as far as I remember, could cause the pain. I can walk but with a limp and with the pain. And not to be exaggerated, the pain is like the instigated fury of Nazi Hitler, mercilessly piercing my nerves. The painkiller’s effect that the doctor prescribed could only slog for few hours. Sleepless nights smudged me with raccoonic eyes. When I went to my own doctor the next day, she gave me an alternative medicament. She said that the pills she recommended were much better and ‘harsher’ than the ones they prescribed in the hospital. Surely, the medicine was far much nerve-hitting that I even got overdosed!

Upshotly, I missed my classes and stayed home and calling in sick to work was another disaster. On top of that, I’ve already bought ticket to Germany (got to use it on Friday). I just pray that nothing’s gonna stand in my way.

Forget about the aching leg, essentially, the trip would mean meeting friends halfway. Silke, my German classmate turned friend, has been looking forward to see me again. Aside from the stuff that I’ve prepared for the trip, here’s a very short German crash course that I browsed through. It’s actually equipped by Hitler, kiddingly 😉
