Why hello there! I thought I would share a few photos and regale you with the story of my day in Königstein last weekend. My friend Rachel and I took a bus for an hour and a half to the small town of Königstein, about 20 minutes away from Frankfurt. Why would we want to go there, you ask? What could possibly be in Königstein? My grandpa! Opa is German for grandpa, and he has lived there for the past 19 years. My family does not get to see him often because of the distance and expense, so I have never spent time alone with him before. When we arrived, we went back to his house, had a nice conversation, and went to bed. We got up the next morning, walked to the adorable down town for breakfast, and then toured the local castle ruins. Seemingly every town in Germany has its own castle- it’s the thing to do! Then Opa took us to the golf club where he works and taught us how to swing on the driving range. Rachel has a knack for it, so we started calling her Rachel Woods! My favorite part, however, was definitely driving the golf cart. Lastly, he took us to a delicious steak dinner at a restaurant overlooking a zoo! If you had told me a year ago that a year from now I would be dinning in Germany while watching zebras and giraffes graze, I never would have believed you. Then we hoped on the train back to Frankfurt to catch our bus, which we ended up missing. But we were able to catch another train an hour later, so everything worked out in the end. I had so much fun reconnecting with Opa in Königstein, and hope to visit again soon! Plus, another steak dinner would be nice 🙂

  1. I’m thinking that Scott would heartily approve — especially of the golf and steak — what more could a girl want? ; )
