After a long vacation in Europe, I’m glad to be back at the Sandy Springs Georgia apartments. Going through the different European counties was an experience that I probably won’t be able to do for a while because of how little time I have, but I’m glad I was able to do it. I met a lot of new people along the way and we partied a lot. It’s a good thing that I’m still young enough to have the energy to keep up with the Europeans, because they can go all night without skipping a beat.
They have some amazing cuisine in Europe, and I loved every minute of eating it. I think Italy and France are tied for having the best cuisine, but the other countries are no slouch in the food department. There are some local chefs here in Georgia that can create cuisine similar to what I ate in Europe, but it’s not the same as actually being there. There just something about the food and the atmosphere that makes everything a complete package. You can really learn a lot about a country and its culture from the kinds of food that they make on a daily basis.
I brought back a lot of souvenirs for my friends and family. My parents wanted me to bring back something specific from Germany. They wanted to have an authentic set of beer mugs made from metal. Of all the things they could have requested, I didn’t think beer mugs would be one of them, especially since they aren’t heavy beer drinkers. I guess they plan on becoming beer connoisseurs, or maybe they plan on brewing their own beer in their basement. For my friends, I got some random items and let everyone choose what they wanted to take from the pile.
