For Travel Tuesday this week, I am resuming my travel mini series “Europe trip through the eyes of a 17 year old.” It consists of a compilation of posts & photos from my first travel journal, first published on Kiwibox back in 2005. Here are the pages I wrote during my very first trip outside the U.S. & Puerto Rico, as a newbie 17-year-old blogger with no real English training or travel experience. The photo essays may be cute and humorous…or just plain quirky haha 😛 Below, part three!
Want to start from this European series from beginning?
PART 1: Rothenburg, Germany
PART 2: Neuschwanstein + Munich, Germany
Note: Grammar, writing style have not been edited: That’s the whole point! 😉

June.12th.2OO5 (cont.) Since we are nearly done with Germany, here are some hilights of the country, IMO -I liked the countryside better than the city (except for Munich! That was *awesome* -I found very few nice Germans; most dislike us 🙁 -The things I loved most: Munich (everything), Rothenburg (cute and very nice ppl!), the Italian waiter @ the ristorante who was so nice/cute/sweet, both castles we went to, and all of the personnel @ Tutti Frutti! 😀 -Too much grass :p -The houses are cute -Our hotel in Ausburg SUCKED BIG TIME -Our hotel in Rothenburg was *cute* June.13th.2OO5Off from the hotel to our 12-hour drive to Italy (or so!?); we are stopping for 2 hours in Austria tho. Anymoo, I had like a kind of breakfast date with Mike :p he afterwards asked me for a hug and thats the last time we saw each other *sniffs* :p but theres no way that can be compared with Darryls, nuh-uh. Anyways, I think Ill take a nap now.
We are arriving to Innsbruck right now. Gah, I lost most of the views cause I fell *deeply* asleep *pouts*. Oh well, I could catch a few and let me tell ya, Austria is GORGEOUS! This is a valley surrounded by the Alps and many mountains, also pretty buildings and all; simply amazing, ich liebe es! 😉 (I think thats Im lovin’ it in German, lol)
Back to the bus and resuming our road trip to Italy. We spent 2 hours @ Innsbruck, Tirol, Austria 😀 omg, it was too great! And the souvenirs prices were very nice, but didnt have enough euros so couldnt buy anything *pouts*. We went to a lil city and beautiful park, then went around town and also visited the *Swavroski Crystals* place (that was AWESOME! I have to wait for my friends to send me their pics, aince I didnt have enough cam memory by then). But wow, back to the views just *too beautiful*! I mean geez!
Austria (or I better say, Innsbruck :p) hilights
-BREATH-TAKING, I mean just too freakin gorgeous -I would have liked MUCH BETTER to have spent all of those days we did in Germany here in Austria instead -The climate is just PERFECT! (hot, but the wind makes it warm and cool; no cold wind chill AT ALL) -I could freakin live here -Did I already mentioned that it was just *beautiful*!?
Right now we are passing through the highest bridge of Europe. I hope someone takes freakin PICTURES! And seriously, this is DAMN high. Weeee.
Reflections after reading through my past: Funny how much we change through the years, right? I could not help but think, wow, how crappy my digital camera was back then, too!? XD I remember having a very noisy, perfect-square-shaped mini Polaroid, one of the first [affordable] digital cameras to hit Walgreens. It cost me like $89 and I bought ti right before my Euro trip. Haha, the memories!
