Dresden

Next we stayed with Johanna's relatives in Dresden, a beautiful and historic city. The sites were amazing and I took many pictures here. I am so grateful for the hospitality of the Ermel family as they welcomed me with open arms. I came away from Dresden with a renewed love for family and togetherness.

So much resilience in the city of Dresden, as it had been bombed heavily during World War II. The buildings as they stand now are full of history and beauty.
