Travelogue Entry in Frankfurt, Germany

Berlin to Frankfurt- Erfurt

Hi all.
I have been planning my trip for the summer of 09 and have just found out I have three or four more days I can add to my trip. I will be in Berlin for five days, then was looking at Erfurt on the way to Frankfurt where my plane will be leaving to come back to the US.


I will be spending New Years eve in Dresden and am interested in :
a) a quiet hotel near the station – any recommendations? 3 or 4 star is ok
b) info re: the fireworks display – where exactly is it??
Has anyone spent New Year there? Any suggestions?

Eastern Europe, December 2008-January 2009

Hi everyone! I’m planning a solo backpacking trip (my first!) for this December/January. I got a great deal on a flight to Poland so that’s my starting point. I need some pointers on where to go/avoid and also some ideas on how over-crowded my current itinerary is looking. Help?

The dates in question are 10 December 2008 – 25 January 2009 (42 days). I need to be back in Aberdeen, Scotland for the 26th as I have classes, so I need to end up somewhere on the 25th with direct air connections to Edinburgh or Glasgow.

Right now I have:

10/12 thru 11/12 – Wroclaw, Poland

Eurotrip Takes Oktoberfest
Travelogue Entry in Munich, Germany

Faces of Oktoberfest 2008 (26 pics)

Photos were taken from the Trachten- und Schützenzug Parade on the second day of Oktoberfest. About 9000 people joined the parade. They are groups representing the smal communities from all around Bavaria State, as well as some guests from other parts of Europe. Here are only a small number of selected photos from the 2 hour + parade. I’m impressed by the interesting traditional culture of Bavaria. enjoy!
