But this also meant that I kept delaying visiting my friends, Lori and her husband from the California Globetrotter in their adopted home, Regensburg. So when I finally decided on a big Germany trip, I knew I had to visit Regensburg and see them.

Regensburg is one of the largest cities and tourist destinations in the state of Bavaria. Much of that has to do with the Danube River which flows through it. The city is a popular stop for river cruises and it’s easy to see why with its atmospheric medieval centre. Visiting on my own I’m sure I would have enjoyed the city quite a lot. But even better, my friends were kind enough to show me around the city they call home and take me through many of the best things to do in Regensburg.

I’d only ever passed through the city on a bus in the middle of the night, so I was quite keen to explore.
