Located in the midst of Europe, Germany is surrounded by the North Sea, Denmark, Baltic Sea, Poland, Czech, Austria, Switzerland, France, Luxemburg, Belgium, and the Netherlands.
From the high Alps, Bavarian plains, flowing hills, and coasts of the Baltic Seas: it all looks like a miniature train landscape packed with the nicest of old towns, medieval houses, gothic churches and small villages.
Germany is the land of poets and thinkers.
A popular German saying has the meaning: "Breakfast like an emperor, lunch like a king, and dine like a beggar."
My husband's maternal side of the family is named Blumenthal. They were originally from Germany. Dale & I would love to visit the country sometime.
