I never really considered going to Hanover for a weekend trip. It’s relatively small and 4 hours by train from Amsterdam. But when given an opportunity to check out a new city, I try not to pass that up. My boyfriend plays full-time tennis, which means he sometimes travels to different countries to play in tournaments, and I so happen to be very free on the weekends (au pair perks!). I tagged along for a mini road trip and got to spend a Sunday afternoon exploring Hanover all on my own.
I'll be honest, before most trips I will do lots of research, reading blogs and watching videos about the place I'm visiting. For this trip, I did almost nothing. I knew that this trip was almost entirely Oktoberfest so I figured I'd had a general idea of what it'd be like. Oktoberfest was bigger and crazier than I could have imagined.
