    Rothenburg ob der Tauber, Germany: The Medieval Town

    Rothenburg ob der Tauber was one of the towns that was very high on the list of places I wanted to visit while I was still in Germany. Rothenburg is one of those towns in the middle of the Bavarian tourist trap known as the Romantic Road.

    Brighton, England and the Dead Fish

    Brighton was on my list of places to go during my one week vacation in England. One, it was close to London and Winchester. Two, it was near the ocean. Three, it was suppose to kind of a hippie town or at least something with a more relaxed type of atmosphere.

    Rye, England with no Bread

    Rye was an after thought in my three destination journey through southeast England. Although, I do regret putting it toward the very end as I didn't get to see very much of it. I arrived in Rye around 4pm and the sun was already about to set.
