What people are saying about Stralsund

It is imperative that you read the last email you receive on the same day, as that is the correct meeting point. At first we were with another, wrong group (because the meeting point was wrongly stated in the first email) and were downright exposed by the wrong night watchman, saying we would buy illegal tickets etc. In the end, the right night watchman came and we had a great tour through the old town of Stralsund. The Lord got the best out of the situation and the weather. Thanks for that!
