Day 2: "Frankfurt and Munich," June 25th, 2019
Frankfurt --> Munich
The first part of Germany I had the pleasure of experiencing was Frankfurt. My initial astonishment came from the hills: Prominent figures which display their bold composure for all the world to see, even observable from an airplane a few thousand feet in the air. Little have I seen which compares to the wonder that is the German landscape.
Anyway, we got to Frankfurt around 7:40 am (German time)(1:40am est). The plane was 40 minutes late, cutting a huge chunk of our two hours in layover. The German TSA and their security protocols (which included a pat down for me) made sure to eat the rest of that layover time. Boarding for our flight began at 8:45 am; at which point, a majority of our group had JUST arrived. 2 members weren't so lucky and only managed to get there a minute or two before take off (thanks to the Police's finding and arresting a fugitive within the airport. We arrived in Munich at around 10 am and proceeded to go to a market for an hour and a half of free time.

After this, we went back to the hotel to rest for an hour or so before dinner. During this time, I realized it was 9 am in West Chester and tried to call my parents from the hotel floor. My friend commented on the matter:
"Chris, I watched you completely crash today. I watched you try to call your parents for 10 minutes straight then pass out on the hotel's concrete floor when you learned that the phones can't do international calls."
By this point, we'd all been up for over 24 hours (with sprinkled cat naps here and there). We went back to the hotel exhausted and eager for the days to come.
My initial thoughts of Germany after 1 day in the country are that it is beautiful in every possible way. I looked forward to what was to come. Then, I closed my journal, and passed out (this time on a mattress).
Hello everyone! Thanks for reading this second journal entry. Sorry it took so long to get up. While I was gone, a storm hit West Chester and knocked several trees in my yard down. I had to jump on that wood chopping grind today. Anyway, I hope you find these entries interesting. Please remember that feedback is always appreciated! See you in the next post!
