On Day 8 of your Germany trip we visited my girlfriend Ari and her two boys. We hung out in the backyard, where her two boys have a cool fort.
…we walked to a nearby playground. We were lucky to have sunny weather for most of the trip. The common rain in North Germany is what made me flee to Los Angeles 17 years ago.
The next day we went to breakfast with my parents again at their local little supermarket. I guess I got my frugal gene from them — why make breakfast at home when you can get all this for 2 Euros?
After another nap, my girlfriend Danja came over again — with a cake she had made. We enjoyed it on my parent’s patio with another friend of mine, Corinna.
Is it any wonder I gained 3 pounds in 14 days?
