And after 2 and a bit hours in the car we arrived in Dessau. First stop, Bauhaus buildings. These buildings were built during the Bauhaus movement, 1919-1933. Since the Bauhaus era, its style has influenced modern architecture and design.
After leaving we made it to the hotel where post operation Brooke needed her nap. ( Makes me sound old D: ) Later we had dinner at a restaurant and sweet Lord the food was soooooo good. My pork, with mushrooms and pommes (chips) was heavenly. And the portion looked like it was made for someone feeding 3 people, so as you can imagine I was very happy.
The next day saw us leaving the hotel with a belly full of the goodness they call breakfast. And boy do the German's know how to do a good breakfast. Bacon, eggs, cereals, toast, all kinds of breads, spreads, juice, coffee, tomato and meats and cheeses.
With a short drive done we arrived at our next stop where we went on a boat ride around a park that had gardens with all different themes. The Wörlitzer Park was built in the 18th century under Duke Leopold III of Anhalt-Dessau. This garden was mostly themed to match an English garden but also held traces of a traditional Greek, Chinese, Deutsch gardens and so on.
Overall my weekend with my host family was incredible. I saw so much of Germany and the Garden was so beautiful. And after my very tiring weekend, I slept like a log.
