train trip,

My boyfriend's father lives in Hamburg with his wife and 4 children. My boyfriend will go to Germany about a week and half before I do. When I arrive, I'll get to meet the family (yay!) and then we are off! I have a little more than a week to see Germany. Obviously, we'll start in Hamburg and spend a day or two there. Then, we are heading to Amsterdam for a day!! (We're SO close~it'd be a shame not to see it!) The rest of our trip is focused on the Rhine region with a quick visit to Berlin.
