Let me start this post off by saying YAY, GERMANY!!!! I have followed Germany’s National Soccer Team since 2002, and was fortunate enough to be in Germany visiting my family in 2006 when the country hosted the 2006 World Cup. That trip alone built my excitement for the tournament. After a heartbreaking semi-final in 2010, I wanted nothing more than for Germany to take the title this year. Thanks to their amazing players and stand out Goetze, they did! In honor of Germany becoming World Cup champions, I wanted to dedicate a post to some of my favorite images from my last trip to the motherland in 2012. I can’t wait to visit again this August!
