Today marks the beginning of our trip to Europe! My dad and I are taking Shane on his first European extravaganza, including stops in Germany, Poland, and Austria.

We flew to Frankfurt Am Main through Toronto. The first sign that we’ve arrived in Europe: fresh bakeries & delis at the airport!

I like landing in Frankfurt, as for some reason I love the fluttering sound of all the letters changing on the airport departures/arrivals board. It gets me excited about traveling every time.

Our home base for the trip will be in Hof, where we have easy access into Bavaria, Poland, and Austria. We were warmly welcomed by family, who were quick to start the beer drinking. We are, after all, in Germany!
