Trip: Day 1

Today was great! First day jitters made it kind of stressful, but in the end it was great. We started off the day (once we landed in Germany) by visiting the Dachau concentration camp. That was a real eye-opener, and its impact is something I will never forget. Learning the details and history of this camp and what took place was a huge shock. I knew the basics coming in, but the details brought the whole situation to life and made me realize just how fortunate we are to live like we do today. And finally, after a long couple of travel days, we finished off the day with going to the Hofbrauhaus House to eat. It was a great environment to be in and a lot of fun! Overall, the first day of this trip was a success, and I am looking forward to tomorrow!
