Germany and Belgium

I spent the first week of July traveling with my mother through western Germany and Belgium. My mom took a two month sabbatical traveling through Europe which turned out to be a trip of a lifetime. Our week together marked many firsts for me including visiting my family’s origins and driving on the autobahn!

Our destinations: Frankfurt, Nurburg, Leuven, Brussels, Koblenz, Trier, Heidelberg and Rothenberg.
