It's Thursday, guys...which means just a few more days left in this lonely week until the hubs returns to my lovin' arms! Can I get a WHOO HOO?! It's seriously been the-longest-week-ever. Apparently I didn't have as much planned as I originally thought and have ended up doing a whole lot of random, mind-numbing things. Things that include packing and organizing Christmas gifts to ship home (I realize it's only September, but I'm good like that), cleaning out the fridge (not by eating it all, but with a sponge, just so we're clear), and purging my wardrobe (obviously to make room for fall duds...and to have a shop my closet sale...eeek!! Be watching out for that!). While productive, it's still kept the house quiet and the wheels in my noggin' a-turnin'. I hate being alone with my thoughts, but we'll save that for another post. For now, I want to continue along with recapping all of our summer trips. I'm way behind, people. So, without further adieu, let's take a trip to Coburg, Germany, shall we?
Coburg is this little picturesque town in the outskirts of Northern Bavaria where my cousin, Ashley (who you've seen countless times winking in my family vacation recaps), spent 4 months studying abroad with Hochschule Coburg (Coburg's University of Applied Sciences, she studies Interior Architecture...another reason why I love her!). After coming to visit us in Wiesbaden in April, it was only fair to return the favor and visit her in Coburg. Plus, who wouldn't want the chance to spend time with a family member AND see another cool German town? A win/win for sure. Ashley was an excellent tour guide showing us her dorm and campus, Coburg's Marktplatz (town square), and the commanding Veste Coburg, the towns famous castle on a hill. We also stuffed ourselves with silly with one of the best street vender Bratwursts and Döner Kebaps I've ever tasted. I love it when the most unsuspecting places have outta this world cuisine. Needless to say, Coburg is lovely. Another one of those hidden gem towns Germany keeps unearthing for us. Gosh, I love this country.
By the way, thanks a million to those of you who commented on this post, emailed, and checked-up on me this week! I was really feeling the love, y'all. Yet another reason the blog world rocks my socks! FYI, you're all going to the top of my Christmas card list. For reals.
