30 German towns before 30

So, in my last post I mentioned that I recently reached the grand old age of 29 (on 13 August in case you’re interested). This means I will be 30 next year… something that I find I am not dreading quite as much as 29. After all, I have a whole year until then. 365 days to come to terms with the fact that I will no longer be a 20-something. Reaching 29, on the other hand, made me realise that the chances of me achieving many of the things I wanted to before I turned 30 have now been reduced to almost zero. But so that I won’t have too many regrets once I do reach the big 3-0, I decided I need to achieve something in the next year. And so I hit upon the idea of visiting 30 German towns before turning 30. Obviously including the ones I’ve already been to – I don’t get that much time off you know! But to make things slightly more difficult, I’m only going to include places that I have actual photographic evidence of and can remember enough about to write a blog post on them. This is mostly because I took a European trip with my grandparents when I was 17, and while it did involve a few days in Germany, I can’t even remember the names of most of the places we visited never mind what there was to see there! This means that so far I’m up to 5 places – that being the number of German towns that have already been included in my blog. (Click on the name of the town below to read my post on it).

  1. Heidelberg
  2. Calw
  3. Würzburg
  4. Ettlingen
  5. Tübingen

More shall be added as a dig out photos from my various trips around Germany and get round to blogging about them and, of course, visit more places. For now though, I need to do some work (overtime… yay) and then start cooking. Ciao for now!

  1. I was chatting with a friend who got back last week from a tour of Europe with her choir, and I asked her what her fave stop was. She said it was Rothenburg, which coincidentally, was MY fave town in Germany the last time I was there! So I hope you’ll visit there (if you haven’t already) and blog about it.

    1. I haven’t been to Rothenburg yet. I hear it is very pretty, but also FULL of tourists. It’s 2 hours away from me so definitely within day trip distance. I want to go to Schwäbisch Hall next 🙂

  2. What a great idea! Good luck in your travels. We’ve really enjoyed visiting Aachen and Bremen, among others. We also loved Heidelberg and Wuerzburg, which you’ve already got covered 🙂
