Our Germany Adventure - Part One

After a long and uncomfortable plane ride we arrived in Frankfurt and found that our connection to Nurnberg had been cancelled. Lufthansa gave us a voucher for the train and luckily we were able to navigate the DB (German Train) system.

When we arrived in Nurnberg we had to take another train out to the airport to pickup our rental car. We had planned to drive to Munich to spend three days before returning to the cat show in Nurnberg.

It was a good thing that we had decided to make hotel reservations so the airline could send our misplaced luggage. A good reason to always pack a change of clothes in your carry-on.

We stayed in a Feldkirchen, a suburb, in a Holiday Inn Express. Very reasonable and surprisingly comfortable.

The next morning we drove to Dachau, the old Nazi concentration camp.

What an education, certainly a place to reflect on how inhumane humans can be to each other.
