For our last day in Germany, my friends and I decided to stay in Augsburg. First we went to the zoo, which is very close to the hotel we are staying at, and so large for being in the middle of a city! We spent the rest of the day exploring the city, buying souvenirs and gifts for our friends and family, and eating a lot of food! I had a lot of Euros in cash left over that I wanted to spend so that I would not have to transfer the money back into dollars when I got to the airport. I was able to spend most of the money on gifts. I also bought a lot of Haribo gummy bears to bring home!
We stayed out very late, tonight, walking around Augsburg. Its sad to think about going home tomorrow and I am so happy that I had the opportunity to go on this journey. I met a lot of new people that I enjoyed getting to know over the past two weeks, and I learned a lot more about the automobile industry, which I knew almost nothing about when we first left Pittsburgh. I know I will remember this trip forever, and I hope I can stay in touch with everyone!
Tomorrow morning we will head back to the airport, and from there I will fly home to Syracuse. I am excited to see all of my friends and family at home, but I will definitely miss Germany a lot!
