With only resting my eyes and having a brief nap the previous day, I woke up at 1:00 pm. Jetlag got the best of me and I woke up a few different times during that time period. I unfortunately also woke up with a sore throat and stuffy nose. Thank you recycled plane air.
Once I finally got up and around, Neele and I when back to Hannover. We toured the Herrenhäuser Gärten for a couple of hours. The weather was brisk but sunny.
My favorite part of the botanical gardens was an artistic part called the grotto. The artist who created the area of the gardens also designed the nanas in Hannover.
After the botanical gardens, we stopped by the university in Hannover. The building was extremely beautiful. Neele told me students do not live on campus, but rent flats. Additionally, most Germans get their bachelor’s and master’s degrees in 5 years.
We hopped back onto the train again and ate a late afternoon breakfast/lunch/dinner of kebab and then went on a hunt for a snowboarding jacket for Neele. I also stopped by an ATM to withdraw cash because credit cards and debit cards are rarely accepted in Germany. Make sure you have enough Euros if you are coming to visit!
Our day concluded and we headed back to Neele’s house and spent the evening with her parents talking about anything and everything.
