The Black Forest!
Jessica, Priscilla and I took a 7:40 train to Freiburg, it took 4 hours and we changed trains 3 times. But the time flew by because we were reading, talking and sleeping. We arrived in Freiburg at noon, without a map or an agenda, just a time frame of 6 hours! We found a Asian cuisine restaurant and had lunch there. We then walked around looking in shops, taking pictures, and buying post cards. We then decided that its time to hit up the black forest.
So we find a map, make some guesses, ask somebody and find our way to the right tram; which takes us to the right bus, which then takes us to the lift, that finally gets us up to the top of the black forest!!!! By this time its 3pm and we have an hour before we should head back to the train station. So we enjoy the hike, take some pictures, sit and enjoy the view. At 4 we take the lift back down to the bus, to the tram, and then walk to the train station.
We arrive at the train station, Priscilla eats pizza, Jessica and I eat McDonald's, then we board our train, for another 4hour ride and 3 changes! The time passes by even more quickly this time because we play 20 questions!!! I had a really great time with them, visiting the black forest and the city. Best of all the whole trip cost about 30 euros! We arrived back in Reutling around 10:30, then 11:00ish at the school.
Freiburg is a 4. It was really pretty, larger than Reutlingen, and the Black Forest was Great!
