    In and around Nuremberg

    January 16, 2017 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ -4 °C

    A late start again, we are not getting up until 8am. It is so hard to get up when it is still dark. We had a look around Nuremberg today. In most Geman towns there is the Alstadt (old town). Walking through the park this morning we saw a squirrel. I'm super excited about seeing a squirrel, a lady in the park said they are always around. People put nuts out for them. It's the same with the birds, there are always bird feeders around. I will be out bright and early looking for squirrels. We had a bit of blue sky and sun, but it felt colder. The weather is always changing and the rest of the day we had snow showers. I don't think I will ever get sick of walking while it's snowing. A coffee, walk around, and then lunch. We had Italian today- pizza and pasta. After lunch we headed out to Documentation Center Nazi Party Rally Grounds. It was very intetesting and a lot of information. We didn't finish there until 5pm so it got dark outside. There is so much more to see outside, so we wandered a bit. Then decided to walk to a subway station, we eventually got there. Did our usual tea shopping on the way home, back in our apartment before 7pm. Another good day, our time is going so quickly.
