In which I go to Heidelberg

  Heidelberg is possibly the prettiest city there ever was! It has a castle, a river (Neckar) with arched bridges, lots of church spires and is nestled in a wooded valley. The epitome of picturesque.

  Sam & I spent three days and nights in Frankfurt, before I headed south to stay with my friend Emily… I’d done a bit of research before we went, but we went with an open mind as to what we should do! (Sam would disagree with me I think!) On day one we headed to the Explora museum, via…
