Unhappy Have to Say Goodbye to My Baby for 2 Months!!

Well the time has come... I am moving back to the United States (finally) and I had to part ways with my baby today so she can ship to San Antonio, Texas!

I really had an excellent time here in Germany with her, especially on the Autobahn of course. I will miss the driving experience for sure; you just can't compare the roads in Europe to those in the United States. The transition back to +/- 70 mph is going to be really rough, since I probably drove about 130 mph on average just to commute to work every day and 70 is about how fast you drive on back roads.

I have lived here for a total of 7.5 years now, and if you have ever thought about travelling over to visit Germany, I highly recommend it. If you don't mind the chilly weather, I would recommend the last week of November to make your way here, because that is when all the Christmas Markets start, and it is a really great experience for anyone to see. Germany of course is pretty central to Europe, so you are surrounded by plenty of other countries to visit as well. For example, I am taking a 4 day snowboarding trip down to Austria, only a few hours away from me.

Of course, BMW wise you have the BMW Welt (world) which is always a great experience, as well as the Mercedes and Porsche museums which I had a great time at as well. Any questions about travelling here or anything in general, hit me up! Here are some last photos before shipping.

Munich is a very nice city with a lot to see. It has many old as well as new aspects of the city which makes it a very interesting place to travel. Many major cities in Germany were so destroyed during WWII that they obviously were forced to rebuild with more current structures, so the mix between old and new is cool to see.

When you get back, join us at some of the Tejas chapter events. Full throttle on Hill Country roads aren't anything close to Europe, but it sure is a lot of fun!! Thanks for your service.

Ships by boat, all under deck storage, so it won't be exposed to the elements or anything. They quoted me latest pick up date of January 7th.. but hopefully it gets there faster...

My wife's uncle as do cousins live in Munich. We'd rather they come here because the uncle is a mechanic and will fix anything we want if we pay for his airfare (group buy among relatives in NJ, Chicago, NYC, LA, Toronto). I was thinking of overhaulin' my '98 Nissan. They find the states to be way more interesting than Deutschland. The grass is greener. So is the money over there. Dang Euros!

Thanks for the Christmas/November time recommendation. Always wanted to go to Europe during this season.

Best time of the year. Spring/Early summer is the best time to travel up the Rhein River and check out all the castles and Monasteries... The town I lived in for 4.5 years, Bamberg, has a bunch of good Brauhauses (breweries) and a very nice 1000 year old Cathedral among other nice buildings. It was never damaged during the war, so it holds a lot of history.

I'll be going to the local Christmas Markets one last time before I go back to the states, so I will snap some better pictures then. I'll just post a quick old one from the town I live in now, Schweinfurt.
