First up was Friedrichshafen (Germany), better known for its airport and Zeppelin museum, neither of which we visited. The drive was long (because Isaiah decided against getting a Vignette for Austria and we didn't want to get another ticket for driving on the Austrian autobahn unlawfully) and uneventful, so we were relieved to finally arrive in town and grab something to eat. After walking around the city center, which took us all of a half hour, we stopped for ice cream, because that's apparently what you do in Friedrichshafen if you're not inside the Zeppelin museum. My favorite thing about the town was looking across the vast lake that is the Bodensee and seeing the Swiss Alps! From the Swiss side looking toward the German side you just see flat, so it was nice to see some terrain. Sunday we made ourselves a little feast. I was in charge of the green bean casserole and candied yams and Isaiah made the best chicken and dumplings ever. We finished things off with chocolate eggs. Yum.

When it comes to visiting the #DeutchLand, most of the people will suggest you visit during #OctoberFest or during #ChristmasMarket season.Unfortunately, i planned in such a hurry that my travel dates sit exactly on the calendar in between these events. I was kind of worried if this trip is not going to be as good as I was expecting :( Let's find out together how it went ;) Germany offers so many things to see and experience, especially Munich is one of the places where every individual will find his happy place. Therefore I decided to pick this place adding a new page in my travel book.

The rebels started their first leg of their journey from Mumbai ( India), traveling Via Istanbul to Frankfurt.We landed in Frankfurt on a cold evening around 7pm at Frankfurt Airport. Some of our experiences are captured greatly in our pictures below We got to witness a beautiful set of dancers who had come together as activists outside our hostel & performed a sweet show for a large audience which had gathered. The Frankfurt hostel was bustling with a great vibe.A great set of youngsters chatting,some playing some instruments & listening to music,others reading and some standing at the balcony facing the lovely streets of Frankfurt and enjoying a beer or two The lovely Meninger Hotel at Munich City centre was our pad for 2 nights.( would highly recommend them).Not only because they surprised us with a free upgrade to a private suite from a 8 room dorm,but because they have a great vibe, a cute bar, generous staff and some lovely guests. We had a privilege of tasting some of the best local Bavarian beers. Amazing architecture & culture History & Art Beautiful buildings and architecture around the city. Frankfurt & Munich both have a unique touch to it of modern and medieval setting.Munich is quite well known for its big museums and cathedrals After spending the day seeing some of the beautiful architecture,local areas, we went to this lovely man made ice lake.The route was through the very pretty Englischer Garten, German for "English Garden", is a large public park in the centre of Munich, Bavaria, stretching from the city centre to the northeastern city limits. The Main is a river in Germany. With a length of 527 km, it is the longest right tributary of the Rhine, and the longest river lying entirely in Germany. Beautiful streets Colorful streets, filled with restaurants & pubs.Munich has it all. The Eisbach (German for "ice brook") is a small man-made river, 2 kilometres long, in Munich. It flows through the park known as the Englischer Gartenand is a side arm of the Isar River. A manmade wave has been created on one section, where surfers come & spend evenings surfing.We saw a very talented bunch one evening. The local tram system is so well connected & easily accessible. FC Byern celebration Pretty people of Germany Food We got to try some yummy sausages known as Bratwurst: The name means "farmers' sausage,"Germany has an extremely beautiful culture ! Happy exploringThis post was originally published on Rebel In Transit.

We started from Zurich at 9:30 in the morning, bypassing through a few smaller towns and a conduit of ever impressive highways, before reaching our first stop at the town of Luzern. And it turned out to be one of those picturesque ancient towns, I definitely did not want to miss on during my visit to Switzerland.
