Our trip was a customized, specific and personal journey through Germany. I provided the information of where we wanted to go and what we wanted to see. The travel team created an amazing trip for us based on the information I provided, the places we stayed and the local customs/eating experiences. In addition, the travel team did much research for our trip and engaged local guides/subject matter experts. The information we learned and the people we met will have a profound effect on us for the rest of our lives. The travel team exceeded our expectations.
We had many serendipitous moments. Two in particular were in Muehltroff and Dobareuth. Our guide, Martin, talked with locals to find out more about WWII history in the area. In Muehltroff we met the mayor who also was part of the local historical society. He opened up the castle and gave us a tour where my father-in-law (an American GI) spent a few nights during WWII on his walk to liberation by the American army. In Dobareuth, Martin, talked with an elderly couple who remembered the American GIs walking through their. The woman told us a very touching and emotional story of her mother attempting to help the GIs as well as how the war impacted her family. All the internet surfing or book reading cannot replace these actual experiences we had with these people as well as with others we met on our journey
My husband and I have talked about this. We would not change what we did or where we stayed. We thought we allowed enough time, but I think if we would do anything differently, we would allow additional time to explore several different areas we were in - Weimar and Nuremberg, in particular. Having said that, we had specific goals in mind with this trip and we accomplished those goals.
