I am going to Germany :D


I am so excited, I am going in just over 2 weeks.

I am going with my Oma (grandma) as she's german and her sisters still live over in Germany, she goes once every few years visting them and usually likes to take someone with her. Last time it was my sister and I honestly wasn't excpecting her to go again, she went a little over 6 months ago and not to mention she is nearly 80, but I love Oma I want to be like her when I'm older she is still so active.

Anyway Oma rang up and wanted to speak to me, she was like serious talk, would you want to come to Germany, I was pretty much dancing on the spot lol.

This was just last week on Wendesday, all paid for on Friday and were flying out on the 17th of May

The best news, I have rellies over there with horses
Oma said I might be able to stay with them for a week and ride their horses and help out there, that I think is the thing I am must looking forward to.

The bad news, I don't know any German , was planning on learning some this year, but now I'm going in two weeks going to be kinda hard, think I will learn some well used phrases

We will be flying into Frankfurt aiport and then from there we will be going to Friedrichshafen by plane.
When were there we will get picked up by my Tanti Inga and taken to her place in Illmensee.
I think we may stay there for a week or so then go up north by car/train maybe not to sure to Tanti Mookie's place in Lippetal, Hertzfeld.
Tanti Mookie has the horses
