What do you do when all your plans fall through? Turn to plan B and in this case while Marburg was not going to be Luxembourg city it was still a fun place to explore. Located just 40 k north of Butzbach, so just about an hour 15 from Frankfurt this university town offers a rich history in old style German Architecture, good food, and a beautiful castle to explore. Be forwarned getting to this castle is a bit of a hike and all up hill, so if you have little ones you may want to take the bus directly there is you are traveling by train; however, the views from up above are lovely. Where to eat? Endless choices since Margburg is a university town and at reasonable prices. It was pretty apparent that the children just weren't into sight seeing, so we cut our loses and went to see the movie Emoji at the giant Cinaplex in town. That is how it is when you are traveling with children. Sometimes they can totally be all into whatever one is exploring and at others they just aren't digging it. This meant we didn't get to see the inside of the castle, but I am sure we will go back to Marburg one day. Anyway, when I say we I am speaking of myself and our friend Nadja from Austria. We have known her for for 14 years now. She helped me with the boys for a couple of summers when she had first graduated from high school. The kids loved the movie and afterward we walked back to the train stain via Elizabeth Kirche. Well, Today is the first day of school here in Germany. Poor Addy was totally nervous. Avery starts tomorrow and Ivy on Wednesday. They are all so ready to be back in school and I am ready to have a little bit of peace and quiet each day. Hope your week is starting off well? See you back here soon!
