Germany: Day 2

Castle lined rivers, little Italian ice cream shops, clean cut hiking trails, and an overall appearance of a post card. Welcome to Germany everyone!
To be honest? I love it here.... For those reasons, and because the paper towel in the public bathrooms is recycled, and there are giant air energy turbines freckling the hills and valleys, because bread is made fresh at the little bakeries in every little village, and because it turns out that most of our fairy tales originate from here! 
For example:
Hansel and Gretel 
Pied Piper
Sleeping Beauty
Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
The Frog Prince
Little red Riding Hood
Puss in Boots
Rumplestilzken (naturally, that spelling error, whatever it may be, is not in the built in dictionnary...)
* Paulina has corrected my grammar: Rumpelstilzchen.... For the record, I was close! 
The list goes on.
Today, we went for a cruise of the Rhine, and took a tour of Marksburg castle, which is the best preserved castle on the riverside... This riverside has the most castles on the shortest span in the whole world! Has anyone heard the story of Loreley, a siren who crashed a ship of sailors who were distracted by her brushing her hair? 
Anyways, we had gelatos afterwards, and had a hard time convincing the server to bring me one without alcohol... LOL. I heart Germany :P 
German lesson for the day? 
I - Ich - Je   (Igh)
You - Du - Tu   (Doo)
He - Er - Il    (Ehayr)
She - Sie - Elle    (See)
We - Wir - Nous   (Via)
You (plural) - Ihr - Vous   (Eeyuh) 
They - Sie - Ils or Elles   (See)
I’m tiredddd.
Good night Canada
Love Always,
