GERMANY SUMMARY – 2011
My first visit to Germany was an exchange trip through school. After returning to tech college to enhance my skills, the Administrative Professional program I was taking had an exchange program with the Wihelm-Merton-Schule in Frankfurt. In the spring, the students from Appleton, Wisconsin, made the trip to Frankfurt; and in October, the students from Frankfurt made the trip to Appleton. The trip was lacking participants so I was able to bring my mom along, who had never been out of the country.
This was my first trip to Europe and I was so excited to be going. We arrived in Frankfurt on March 20, 2011. My mom actually arrived the day before, I missed the flight and she flew on to Germany with my class.
The school arranged accommodations and my mom and I stayed with an instructor, from the school and his family; Rolf and Ann and their two daughters, Darta and Ina.
Did a lot of sightseeing between classes. Visited Frankfurt, Hessen Park, Heidelberg, Hochst, Bad Homburg, Darmstadt, Rüdesheim, Bonn, and Offenbach during this 2-week adventure.
