Wedding in Deutschland
It was our first time in Germany. So it was also a cultural, geographical and educational experience for us besides the experience of attending a German wedding for the first time. We arrived to Munich on Friday and rented a car from the airport. (It was also the first time I rented a car in Europe.) We arrived at our hotel and rested for a couple of hours. We then went out to see the small village where we were staying just outside of Munich. In the evening, we got together with Freddy, Tina, and the other guests for an informal dinner.

We went to church around 1:30 pm for the wedding on Saturday. The wedding was fabulous. Freddy and Tina looked gorgeous and looked like a couple made in heaven.

We felt like an old couple, 3 years have passed since we married! :)
On Sunday, after having farewell brunch with Freddy and Tina, we headed out to see Munich for a couple of hours as our flight was in the evening. But after spending about an hour in the Munich centre, we were told that Pope will be visiting the city centre and hence most of the roads would be closed. We were aware that Pope was attending a ceremony little outside Munich but didn't know that he would be visiting the city centre on Sunday. So we headed out of the city as soon as possible and on the way to the airport, stopped by the Allianz Arena. The stadium was , wowwwww...impressive.
