Default My Trip To Germany

This past week from April 1st - April 9th I was in Germany. My mom is from there and we go visit her family every 2 years. The flight there was 8 hours 45 minutes. 35,000 feet and at one point 650 mph. Tuesday I went on a 5 hour motorcycle trip with my uncle on his bike. Its a Triumph Sprint 1050. We did 210 kilometers (126mph) on the autobahn. I saw a good bit of American vehicles. Corvette, F150, Dodge Ram, American Civics, Ford Mustang, Dodge Dually, Chevy 2500, Jeep, Ford Explorer, and maybe a few more I cant remember.

For gas there, once you convert everything, they are paying $7.76 a gallon. Inspections cost like $600. You have to get an inspection every 2 years or every 80,000 kilometers, I forgot which.

I have a friend that lives across the street from my grandpa's house and he can speak English, so it was nice to be able to talk to him.

On the trip me, my mom, and my sister stayed with my grandpa.

I took 540 pictures, but only uploaded about 150 of them.

The blue car that looks like it's ass cut off is my grandpa's car.

Holy crap, epic trip pics you got there!

But, i didn't know they allowed guns on american planes? Are you claustrophobic? A bullet hole like that in the window could have been dangerous no?
