I'm 1/4 German on my dad's side too, so I thought it'd be nice to go to Germany.
I lived in Jena for a year and swore I'd be back soon. It's been over a decade. I would give anything to go back.

School trip in 1996. Travelled through France, Belgium and stayed in Germany.
I take German in school, and family is from there.
I want to see my family and travel around Germany
Germany is another country I've always been fascinated with. It helps that I have German roots.
