    Day 8b. Bad Zwischenahn.

    August 12, 2019 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C

    Horst, Carola, Ron and I walked back through the township of Bad Zwischenahn. Horst bought local produce including cheeses, Leberwurst, dark bread and ham. We looked at the seafood in Brunns Aale established since 1876 specialising in smoked eel and salmon.
    I was interested in the hymn books in St John’s Lutheran Church because my family attended the Bethlehem Lutheran Church in Flinders Street, Adelaide which conducted services in German.
    We had lunch at Spieker Ammerländer Bauernhaus famous for its eel, fried potato and Vollkorn bread.

    Day 8c. Bad Zwischenahn. Eel Meal.

    August 12, 2019 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C

    We started the meal with a dunkel beer.
    Before eating eel you have to drink schnapps to prepare your stomach for the fatty eel meat. This involves a chant then a shot of schnapps from a silver spoon which should be held in your left hand.
    We had 4 shots of Ammerlände Löffel Trunk schnapps during the meal! We ate 2 smoked eels each.

    Day 8d. Bad Zwischenahn. Eel Meal.

    August 12, 2019 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C

    Eating smoked eel was a fascinating meal. I remember eating smoked eel as a child. My parents would buy it from the city market.
    We ate 2 smoked eels each. Horst showed us the process of breaking off the head then peeling off the skin and using your hands to bite the meat off the bones. It was delicious. Each eel cost between 13 and 17 Euros depending on its weight.
    At the end of the meal the restaurant owner poured a cheap schnapps over our hands to wash them.

    Dag 17

    June 22, 2019 in Germany ⋅ ☀️ 18 °C

    Vandaag hebben we de snelweg gepakt om de gewenste km te pakken. We zijn beland in Bad Zwischenahn op een katholieke camping. We moeten om 23 u stil zijn. De avond kwam de een na de ander een praatje maken. We zijn dus netjes om 23.45 stilletjes gaan slapen ( wel na een waarschuwing van de eigenaresse)Read more

    Next Chapter

    January 22, 2019 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ -1 °C

    It is official, the next chapter of my study abroad experience will be written in Vienna, Austria! 🇦🇹
    The second semester of my year abroad will be the compulsory internship and since I already enjoyed collecting some experiences outside of Europe, I thought it would be nice to stay in Europe for my internship.
    This is also really important regarding my career, since I am pretty sure that I would like to stay here in the future. It was always more or less a dream of mine to work in the aviation business. After 3 long months of applying, interviews, tests and phone calls, I managed to get the internship I wanted, without any network or help. I will start working for Austrian Airlines in February and I am excited! I will be working in a small team in the area of Supply Chain Management and Financial Control. Sounds like quiet a challenge for me but as I noticed, this is what I need in life to learn and grow.
    Along with the good news, I also noticed that from here in a year, I will have to write my Thesis. It is insane how time passes by. It seems like just a few month since I moved to the Netherlands and struggled with my first exams. Looking back at these 2,5 years, I can even count the amount of things I learned professional, and personal speaking. I am curious which lessons Vienna has prepared for me! 🛫

    Park der Gärten

    July 13, 2017 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C

    Also wir fahren da so gemütlich auf der Autobahn und dann > Monika: -Lueg do das Schild. Dört äne gömmer.- So kam es, dass wir einen kleinen Zwischenstopp bei der grössten Dauergartenschau Deutschlands einlegen. Eine imposante Sache und der Beweis, dass spontane Entscheide auch ihren Reiz haben.

    Heel wat besünners! Ostfriesland, das Land der Deiche, der Ottifanten und der schaurig schönen Wattkrimis, chchch.

    Auf zum Flughafen

    January 12, 2020 in Germany ⋅ 🌧 6 °C

    Auf geht es mit Jan Dirk nach Bremen. Auf dem Weg fällt uns noch ein, dass die Rufumleitung noch aktiv ist und drehen schnell um um das zu ändern. Einchecken ist bis auf den Tatbestandteil, dass wir in Frankfurt auf Standby stehen problemlos. Da kann auch die Aida Hotline uns nicht weiterhelfen. In Frankfurt gibt es dann Entwarnung, Dafür sitzen wir getrennt. Und schwupp sind wir da. 😎Read more
