We got to Tübingen and went to the university for a tour in german! Well there was a german option and an english option, but all of us chose the german. The other international students went for the english one along with most of the host families that went with us.
Tübingen is a gorgeous town. It is an old town. Many of the buildings were built in the 1400s! Crazy... Our country hadn't even been founded by then.
The monastery was beautiful. The life these monks lived was very interesting. Like they didn't have any heat because they believed that was too much of a luxury and would take them away from God. They went to mass like 8 times a day. I could never imagine doing what they did.

|Very simple bedrooms. The comforter looks so comfy until you remember there was no heat....|

Anyways. We walked back to the bus together, and made it thanks to her wonderful navigation abilities. We may or may not have taken a couple wrong turns and got lost once but we figured it out!
We ended up talking the whole ride home from Tübingen.
When we got back to PH we had decided we wanted to go and get ice cream! So Angela, Becky, Sabrina and I went to get ice cream in Marktplatz and what place other than our wonderful M7! We didn't originally plan on going to M7 but it was the only place we noticed was open. We got Eisschokolade. DELICIOUS! I didn't get a picture of it though. I was already cold and then ate ice cream and got even colder. Sabrina and I shared a blanket. By the end of the night, we were really good friends. How it happened I honestly don't know. But I couldn't be happier! :)
And to think, I went from feeling home sick in the morning, to being super happy and excited for the next 7 weeks! :)
Angela came home with me that night to spend the night. We wanted to make sure we were both up in time to catch the train to München the next day.
