And I can’t write one more sentence without mentioning Dave Limburg, Guilford’s generous and tireless German professor, the planner of this wonderful trip, intrepid traveler and adult camp counselor, who always had at least one of the group’s children hanging off him adoringly. He led the group for two weeks – “Ten Days, Ten Biergartens” – plus a weekend trip to Berchtesgaden, where Guilford students always spend the first week of their Munich study abroad. Each day was a different excursion, both familiar and new. Smaller groups would sometimes break off during the day, with almost everyone meeting up again at the evening’s chosen Biergarten. Dave is the reason this trip happened and the fluent glue that held us together. We leaned on him in every way: “Dave, where are we meeting? What train ticket do I buy? How do I ask for a baked potato?” He never even flinched.
