the end

Fellow travelers, I have some sad news.  This is the last post in the series, Twenty-something Travels.  When I was a young child, my family and I lived in Germany for two years.  It seems fitting that this series end in the country where my travel interests began.  Munich and Bavaria has always held a special place in my family's heart, so it was a real treat to return to the region in July 2003.

Munich's Marienplatz:

Enchanting, whether you're three or twenty-three

The Hofbrauhaus:

I hope reliving these travels was as much fun for you as it was for me.  This has been a journey that is both humbling and exhilarating.  To travel anywhere is a privilege, and it is an experience to which I am profoundly grateful.

I wonder where I'll go to next...
