Summer Trip - Day 17: Aachen, Germany

Sunday, June 27, 2010

Andy and I left Monika’s in the morning and went to Aachen, Germany because we knew we wanted to be there for the Germany/England game.  We walked around for a bit searching for a public-viewing area and almost conceded our search at a local bar before hearing music and stumbling upon a huge closed-off square where two screens and a DJ were setup.  We had some time before the game started so we walked around some more and grabbed a few beers to enjoy before going into the viewing area.  When we got back to the plaza, they weren’t letting in any more people until halftime, so we just had to wait.  The game was a ton of fun.  I’m not a big England fan so I was happy to see them lose, and to be in Germany for it just made it that much better.

We tried to go to Amsterdam that evening but there was a section of train under construction, which meant we had to take a bus for part of the journey.  This delay made it not worth it to go to Amsterdam, because we wouldn’t get there until late and didn’t have a place to stay.  We got back to Maastricht and just hung out and slept in Phil’s apartment.
