Potsdam, Germany

On my second day in Germany, I signed up for a bicycle tour in a little town called Potsdam. It was about an hour outside of Berlin. It was incredibly beautiful and seemed like it was taken out of a fairy tale story. There were palaces but even the scenery and the look of the buildings in the town added to the
fairy tale aspect. Here are some photos I took:

The gate to the city...I really liked this!

Street in Potsdam

I really liked the yellow in this building...and the architecture!

Schloss Cecilienhof...I really liked this palace as well, and the gardens!

This face made me laugh.

I liked this view across the river
Part of the fun of this tour was being able to use the bikes. It was fun to be biking around and experiencing that aspect of the German Culture. It was a beautiful day as well...all of the makings for a very fun and educating experience! At the end of the tour, I treated myself to some yummy ice cream. We then headed back to Berlin as a group and I went off on another adventure, so stay tuned! :)
