How so? Well, the day before, I went out to Media Markt (the German Best Buy) in search for some new toys. I found this awesome stick normally used to make epic selfies….
Well, I was really pushed to buy it when I saw these photos that my cousin, Stefanie, posted on her Instagram account of her and her fiance in Peru
Aren’t they awesome? Thorsten likes to tease me about buying this thing but he also agrees that having it for moments like these in our planned trips.
Today we went to a village just outside of Crailsheim in order to witness what is called the Hammeltanze:
The Hammeltanz literally translates to “Mutton Dance” – I wish I was making this up. It’s a kind of sheep festival but I didn’t see any sheep involved. Today was just a parade.

So now I will end this post with the most unflattering photo of me:
