Day One: Germany & Eindhoven, Netherlands
Very beginning of our road trips always start off with a picture in the car.
We stopped somewhere on the road for a picnic. Still have no clue what Germany town we were in, but we had a blast eating lunch and feeding ducks.
Crossing the border into the Netherlands.
Don't quite know what this building was, but it looked important so we took a picture of it.
One of the first things we did when we got to Eindhoven was buy a postcard with all the local features on it. Then we set out to find them...the round building above was on there, along with this bubble looking thing behind Alyssa.
Our hostel room.
The Flying Pins were another attraction on the postcard. It took us a bit to track it down, but it was worth it.
We also happened upon a carnival! We wandered around for a bit to take it in, and it definitely seemed much more exciting than any of the carnivals I've been to in the US or Germany.
Look at all those bicycles!!! How do you find your own in that mess?
Eindhoven wasn't the most spectacular city in the world for tourists, but they did have a fantastic shopping district and tons of eateries to spend time at. The people were amazingly friendly, most of them spoke English [extremely helpful since I don't know a single word of Dutch], and definitely a gorgeous country that I can't wait to visit again. Next: Antwerp, Belgium.
