Saturday 26.05

Today we headed to Würtzburg for two days. Our train left in the morning and it was about a 3 hour trip. Poor Katy See couldn't find her Eurail pass and had to take a different train, so she got there much later than us. On the train I worked on some journal entries and had a little chat with Anderson about some things.
When we got to Würtzburg we went straight to the hostel to check in and settle in a little. There were two girls rooms, so we split it 5 and 3, so Sara, Becky, Courtney, Vanessa and I were in one room while Angela, Danielle and Katy were in the other. The boys also had two rooms, one one person room and the other had the 6 others.
Once we were settled in and a little freshened up, we went out to explore the town. There was a wine festival going on in the center of the town. We stopped to grab a bite to eat and have a class of wine. One the menu there was something called an "Erdbeerbowle" and in the description said it was made with fresh strawberries. We assumed it was a bowl of strawberries. So most of us ordered that and a glass of wine. We were wrong.

Yes we were wrong, but man oh man was it good! I ended up getting a bratwurst too because I hadn't eaten much at all so far that day, and I decided that two glasses of wine on an empty stomach wasn't a great idea.
Two glasses of wine made us all a little silly...

Even Bully...

We headed back to the hostel for dinner. We had about an hour before dinner so Sara, Vanessa and I took a nap. We set an alarm and everything. But we ended up sleeping through dinner. Whoops!
After our nap, Anderson took a group of us up to a castle. It was quite a hike, but gave us some wonderful views!

At the top we stopped and grabbed a beer/glass of wine. It was really nice. The sun was just starting to set. It was super relaxing and gorgeous.

On the way down Sara, Dustin, Bully and I had fun taking pictures :)

Fake fighting. Don't worry. It's normal for them...

She totally won

We all headed back out to the Weindorf to meet up with Angela, Katy and Danielle. We were swarmed by a bride-to-be and her bridesmaids. If you gave her like 50 cents or something you could draw a piece of paper out a bag and get a prize. There were all sorts of prizes, from teeny-tiny bottles or liquor, to condoms, to onions, to a dance with the bride-to-be!

We had some more wine at the Weindorf and Becky and I got crepes :)
The whole group came together again at a bar, but not for too long. We each had a beer and then left to go back to the hostel. It had been a really stinking long day. At the hostel we sat in the lobby for a bit and connected to the wifi. I crashed hard that night and slept like a baby :)
