Wanderlust 2017: Jewel Box

We were heading back to Germany and I was extremely excited. At this point, I was loving my trip. I thought to myself about how I could easily travel forever – and would love to any day.

Our next destination was Berlin, but first, we were going to take a couple hour break in Dresden, Germany. Similar to the stops in Siena and the Tyrol Region, we had enough time to walk around the city at a fast pace and grab a bite to eat.

So, we obviously ate. We were hours out from Berlin and traveling makes you hungry (literally and figuratively).

But then we saw some sites in the historical city. According to Wikipedia (we didn’t have a tour guide and honestly, this was a city I had never heard of since I never paid attention in history class…oops), Dresden is the capital city of the royal residence for Electors and Kings of Saxoy. The city is known as the Jewel Box because of baroque and rococo city centre – something I can honestly say is gorgeous. Dresden was bombed near the end of World War II and 25,000 people died – mainly civilians.

Here are some pictures from the city – genieBen!
