    Day 313: Christmas Eve in Nuremberg

    December 24, 2017 in Germany

    Decided to have a minor day out today. Went out in the morning to visit the famous Christmas markets in Nuremberg, which were quite nice. Not a whole lot that I hadn't seen before, but some excellent lebkuchen (gingerbread) which was tasty, and much nicer than others I've had elsewhere in Germany. It's a specialty of the region so unsurprising I guess.

    Got a video call from the family Christmas gathering while I was wandering which was nice, good to see everyone. Though I think they were a little bit disappointed that I wasn't with Schnitzel! Bought a couple of things for Shandos as well; fancy lebkuchen and a nice card. Can't exactly buy non-consumable physical objects given our situation!

    Headed home and spent the rest of the day inside, mostly just relaxing today.

    Day 314: Nuremberg Christmas

    December 25, 2017 in Germany

    Christmas morning dawned, just as gloomy and overcast as every other day! Feels a little weird to just be inside all day, looking at Facebook and seeing everyone else's posts about their Christmas day while simultaneously doing nothing ourselves! Comes with the territory I guess. We traded our little gifts, consumed our consumables, but otherwise did very little all day. Obviously nothing was open, so we just stayed inside and cooked our own food.Read more

    Germany - Nuremberg

    July 9 in Germany

    Came here as I found a cheap Ryanair flight from Poland on a whim really! So glad I came here, bit of an unknown gem this place and I wasn’t expecting much but it was so much better than I thought it would be. A medieval city built inside walls, very pretty and a lot of character and history with the Nuremberg trials! Also the best local beer I ever had was in the hostel I was staying at - it was called Schanzenbrau - Helles. Was beautiful! Would recommend here if you have a spare 3 days, it’s cheap and quiet compared to other major cities!Read more

    Friday - Nuremberg!

    August 19, 2016 in Germany

    So somehow we managed to wake up at some ridiculously early hour on Friday morning to catch the five hour train to Nuremberg. Very comfortable, even though we were pretty much zombies at this point. (*TESSA* I risked my guts by ordering a dish from a german menu without knowing what it would be and a dumpling soup arrived. I was so happy!) We also enjoyed sharing our cabin with a couple of dogs, as it's common for people to bring their dogs on the train (which is legal too).

    Our hotel was a very short distance from the train station (and there is also a pub downstairs (*T* the cutest pub ever!!) which we took advantage of later). After a short time settling in, we did a walking tour of Nuremberg. It is a beautiful, picturesque city and Tessa couldn't keep the smile off her face the entire time. (*T* so much beauty, so much learning, so much frankonian pride and so many sausages - how could I be unhappy?!) We grabbed some beers and local Fraconian wines as well as the local speciality Rostbratwurst, small sausages served in threes.

    Following some shopping (*T* hellas yes, I bought a freaking amazing jacket) and a late three hour nap (in which we slept through our alarms), we headed downstairs to our hotel's pub for drinks and more meat than you could shack a stick at (*T* and gravy, sticky dumplings, etc. The highlight was a slow cooked peppered steak a lot like brisket. Let's face it, I'm here for the food). I had my first litre of beer of the trip, which will hopefully not be my last.

    Day 315: Last Day in Nuremberg

    December 26, 2017 in Germany

    Last day in our little apartment. It's been quite comfortable, though we're both starting to go a bit stir crazy in here. Would've been okay if we'd been able to visit our last few World Heritage sites and broken things up, but alas.

    Cooked our food, powered through a few videos and played a few computer games.Read more

    Dinner at random restaurant

    January 7, 2016 in Germany

    We ended uo having dinner at a random restaurant pillhofer that is 2 buildings away hahaha. Was pretty hungry and decided to go with this instead of burger king which is next to our hotel. The price wise, it sort of a matches the more atas food place in prague, the quality wise, perhaps we ate better food before so the chicken schnitzel and the pork Shoulder are so so only. But nevertheless, more german food before we return back to our chicken rice and wanton mee!Read more
