Germany June 28 - July 14, 2010
About a month ago I made a two week trip to Germany. I stayed with a friend and his family in the Hannover region and had an amazing time!

The Autostadt or "Car City" as it translates to, was something that was on the top of my list of things to do while I was in Germany. Not because I'm a huge fan of cars in general, but because it is the "home turf" of Volkswagen and I love me some German cars. I left early in the morning with Hans and his younger brother Cilas and we hit up the trains. It was about a two hour train ride to Wolfsburg, filled with near misses for trains and crappy card games.
But then we finally got there, and what a cool place it was! The place is basically a large garden like area with different showrooms for the companies that VW owns. Including theaters, restaurants, test tracks, shops, and other interesting things. Not to mention the crazy playground with the "wheel of death". ;]
It was really cool to see some of the cars there in person, especially the ones in the "museum" building.
This is also the last group of photos for my Germany report. It was a great trip and thanks to everyone who has been following these updates! So car geeks of TPR, enjoy the photos.
