Camp Omega

Last weekend I went to Camp Omega, a christian camp in Waterville. I did a lot of things there, like hatchet throwing and canoeing. My favorite thing was swimming. The first night, there was a bad storm and my entire cabin stayed up until around 2:00 in the morning. The second night, I twisted my ankle and got to ride in a trailer back to camp. After that, I got to sleep in a hammock. I liked camp a lot, and am going back next year.

Germany part 4 : Kiara

Day 1: I am so excited to see Kiara! Today we went to Basteibrücke, and walked around there. It was very pretty, and I got to climb rocks around that area. We are staying at the four lions hostel.

Day 2 : Today we went to Konigstein fortress. Kiara and I went ahead to play for a little bit.

Day 3 : We walked a different trail to Basteibrücke. We also went to play at a little beach that Kiara found.

Day 4 : Kiara and I went to the woods by her house and built a fort. We stayed there nearly the entire day. We also saw a cat and called it Pumpkin Spice Latte.

Day 5 : We biked to a large park today. It had many ropes and bridges and a hamster wheel. We stayed there for a while and then we went back home. My friend and I went back to the fort and we saw that an area was roped off. Kiara went in and found an old object under a rock. She thought it was an old bomb. She called her dad who worked for the EOD. He said it might be. We also showed my parents a play that we made up.

Germany part 3 - Salzburg, München, Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Nürnberg

Salzburg : We went to the Hohensalzburg fortress, where we saw the marionette museum. We didn't get to go far inside though. Then, my sister wanted to watch a trick bike competition. After that, we went to the Domgrabungs museum, and saw all the old church pieces that they excavated. After that, we saw Mirabell gardens, and we wandered around and found a playground. The last thing we did was Hellbrunn gardens, which was kind of pretty. There were a few fountains, and I found another playground.

München : In münchen, we first went to the Olympiastadion. I saw the eisarena, but it was closed and I didn't get to go inside. After that, we went to the Nymphenburg gardens. There were cool statues of greek gods and a huge fountain. After that, we wandered around a little behind the gardens. Then, we went to the old town, and watched the glockenspiel. The glockenspiel is really cool. Finally, we went to the English gardens. There were a few fountains, and a cool area on the river that people could surf on.

Garmisch-Partenkirchen : First, we took a cogwheel train up to Zugspitze. We got to climb a few rocks, and sled on a glacier. It got really foggy after that. We took a cable car up to zugspitze, but all we saw was fog and clouds. My family has bad luck with mountains and weather. After that, we went to Eibsee for a little bit, and stayed to watch the ducks by the bridge. Last, we went to Partnachklamm. It is a gorge where there is a natural tunnel near the river. I did not like that. It was too loud and cramped for me. Also, it kept dripping on me.

Nürnberg : Today, we went to Nürnberg and saw the old Nazi party grounds. We walked around the lake a little. After that, we walked around the old town a little, and saw someone playing a marimba. We also saw a living statue. I am currently on a train to Berlin to see my best friend. YAY!

Germany! Part 2 - Heidelberg, Rothenburg, Neuschwanstein

Heidelberg : We went to Heidelberg and saw the old town. We went up to a castle that was very old (and ruined). After that we saw a cathedral where the bones of the Three Wise Men were. We found free water (only one I have seen in Germany forever!)

Rothenburg : After Heidelberg, we went to Rothenburg. My family walked around the old town, and we walked around the old wall. After that, we found a park on the edge of the wall, and then we had to go back to the train station.

Neuschwanstein : After Rothenburg, we went to Neuschwanstein (Literally new swan stone) And got a tour. It was built in the 19th century, but was modeled after the middle ages (and a few operas.) There was a small room that looked like a cave, modeled after one of king Ludwig's favorite plays.
after that, My family went to the marienbrucke to go on a hike.

Germany Day 1 - Flight and Frankfurt

Yesterday I went to Germany. I did not like the plane ride because I had a cold. After I got there, I walked around Frankfurt. I saw a lot of old buildings and took a few pictures. I saw a cool playground, but my sister didn't want to play, so we couldn't stay there. My friend and I Skyped for a little bit before bed, and the I fell asleep.
