Keeping Up With Kaitlyn!
While her parents were there, they visited Rothenburg - the full name of this city is Rothenburg ob der Tauber, which translates to Rothenburg on the Tauber (river) – as well as Dresden, Wernigerode, and Berlin.
Dresden was also another city that was heavily bombed during WWII. One place in particular that suffered quite a bit of damage was the palace which is still in the process of being repaired and restored. Another castle that Kaitlyn and Ozzy visited was the Neuschwanstein Castle (which inspired the castle in Disney’s Sleeping Beauty).
In addition to exploring Germany, Kaitlyn has also enrolled in a German class. She explained that the class is going well, but is getting more difficult as time passes. Evidently, German words have feminine, masculine, plural, and neutral cases. She said compared to learning Spanish, German is much harder!
With Christmas just around the corner, Kaitlyn is excited to spend time with her husband Ozzy’s family. Since Germany does not celebrate Thanksgiving, Kaitlyn said that Christmas shops have been open since around that time. While touring the shops, Ozzy tested out some “hot wine” (essentially just warmed up red wine), whereas Kaitlyn just stuck to the hot chocolate!
