I went to Germany for 5 days to visit my aunt and cousins. It is always a fantastic time, and I really did not want to leave. I am looking forward to returning to my birth country :)

Thursday: My flight left from Madrid-Barajas a bit past noon and I got to Germany a bit before 3. Perfect amount of time to not be tired and still enjoy the day with my family.Her house is so cute! She had a chocolate cake sitting on her kitchen island that she made for me! She decorated and bought new furniture for her new place and it is absoultely adorable. I lover her patio that she constructed herself and her kitchen table and seats were so comfy. During Sunday family lunch, we all just layed there because it is so incredibly comfortable!
My aunt decided that we were going to go on a few bike rides, so we went and borrowed a bike for me from the city lost and found. After we picked up one of my cousins and his gf from their apt and we all walked to get some delicious and ENORMOUS pizza from a cute Italian restaurant.
Friday: Woke up to breakfast on the back patio with my favorite cereal! Only in Germany they have these delicious chocolate potatochip-shaped cereal. mmmm. Then we rode bikes to a mini mall with my aunt in the morning. Kicked my butt and almost ran into an old lady riding her bike, heh. We bought some groceries and I showed her my favorite new makeup company called Kiko, and I got her hooked! Affordable and great quality. (I think I may go there today). When we returned we lunched. She is a great cook, like all of my mom's family, and she made a delicious pasta with creamy sauce. I also finished my the rest of my 13 inch pizza pie from dinner the night before.
After, my aunt, her boyrfriend, I rode our bikes to the old city center where we walked into a church, then went to this structure where people find these rings to spin for good luck. We then got our bikes and rod them to another area where we went to an Irish pub and had some bier and food. We had to ride our bikes back fast because one of my cousins was going to pick me up from the house and take me to his apartments where his friends are meeting to pregame before we went to a club. (him and his twin brother conveniently live next door to each other) The night was fun, but I was falling asleep because I had not taken my siesta like I am used to in Spain haha. The club was called Mach 1. Then I slept over at one of my cousin's and my aunt's boyfriend picked me up in the morning to start our day because we were driving to Neuschwanstein early! (and my cousin had to study because it was his finals week).
Saturday:We visited Neuschawanstein. It was absolutely breaktaking! We did a lot of walking (to get there is 1 mile uphill) and then we had to pass some time as we waited for our tour. We had about 3.5 hours to kill so we lunched at a cute restuanrant on the way up, then explored different trails. The bridge was awesome. Got great views of the castle and the surrounding town! I did the tour in German with my aunt and her boyfriend, and my ticket was free - because we said I was 12 years old! So funny! Ended my awesome day by going out to a club with one of my cousins and his girlfriend for the opening of one of its new rooms, "The Party Room"...omg, try more like 90's, middle school dances type music. But it was fun, as always! Got back around 3:30 a.m. Luckily, I was driven back.
Sunday: Woke up to another awesome breakfast of the back porch. Stayed in the house all day. It rained and it was cold, ew. It felt like fall already. I stayed in my pj's all day, watched TV, napped, played Sudoku on the back porch. Lunch time is when everyone came for family BBQ. I totally had some bratwurst, delish! When my cousins left, I decided to go up to my room here I had the huge iMac at the foot of my bed to watch a movie. I watched most of Dr. Strangelove, but got really bored of it so then I watched Dinner for Schmucks. It's funny, but sorta strange. As twilight began, the sky had cleared of rain and it was beautiful! Pink clouds and blue sky <3
Monday: I was so sad it was the day of my departure. I woke up at 8, all the other days I woke up before 9:30 which was good, and had breakfast on the back patio again. Then my aunt and I went to buy some last minute things, which is went I saw the crackle nail polish and got a macaroni color base to make cheetah print nails! The we had some fantastic German bread at a place that I relate most to a "Panera" in the states. We also got extra bread for my trip back. We then went to a mini mall that had a grocery store to buy some Greek wine for me to try and take back to the states for my mom and whatever else I needed. We then went to the old city center and got HUGE ice creams, mine looked like spaghetti (gelato) and sauce (strawberry syrup) and she had an enormous cup of yogurt with banana ice cream and strawberries. We went into this this department store and they had a little section of dirndls, and my aunt made me try some on, and I ended up loving one. I have 2 or 3 at home but they are very snug since they are from when I was 12 or younger heh. We got some meat and headed back. Stopped by a street stand where they had bratwurst and I ate it all. DELICIOUS. Apparently, I am not a vegetarian in Germany, haha. I finished my packing, painted my nails, then we started our drive to Munich drop me off at the airport. WAHHH, I didn't wanna go!

Best trip ever.
