    Tübingen & Balingen

    October 13, 2016 in Germany ⋅ ☀️ 10 °C

    The last German town on Vicky's list to visit was Tübingen. It is a university town on the little river Neckar and she wanted to visit in order to try the local specialty of Maultaschen (oversized ravioli).

    Unsure of where to park, we drove towards the centre with our fingers crossed. Luckily there was a large free car park a few km out of town. The only problem was that town was on the other side of a very large ridge and neither pedestrians nor bikes were allowed through the road tunnel. However, being Germany, there was a separate tunnel for walking and cycling with an electronic counter keeping track of how many people passed through.

    We soon found a cafe serving Maultaschen and had an enjoyable lunch. Will had the version with onions and Vicky with egg. We've spent 13 weeks in Germany on this trip and have frequently been struck by how long it takes for waiters to bring the bill. It was only today we realised the waiter asked 'Do you want to take it easy?', as people finished their meals. We may well have been asked this before and mistakenly answered 'yes', thinking they were asking if that was everything. There is still so much for us to learn in Germany and we feel very lucky to have been able to immerse ourselves in the culture and language to the extent we have.

    Tübingen turned out to be a great town, with more 'hippy' shops than we'd seen in all of the rest of Germany. The old timbered buildings with wooden window shutters gave the place real character and we had to drag ourselves away in order to get to our stopover in Balingen where Will carved the pumpkin and we had a nice warming soup.

    Staying 2 nights in Balingen we had time to explore as well as to relax, play guitar and paint. The feature that stood out about this town was the young people's art. Children had made large lanterns that hung around lights strung across the streets. Painted tiles were affixed to walls here and there and the electricity boxes featured an eclectic range of designs. There was also hardly any grafitti. We saw that young people had been included and valued, encouraged to take pride in their town and put their stamp on it in a positive way. Perhaps they didn't feel such a need to make their mark through antisocial behaviour.

    Hansel & Gretel with Herman Hesse

    May 18, 2017 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 61 °F

    Great day no motorways! From Lemberg (France) to Bad Urach (Germany). National park in France and Black Forest in Germany. We stopped at Cawl in the forest for lunch and posing beside a figure on a bridge for a photo I discover it is Hermann Hesse (took a while for the penny to drop) the author! "Some of us think holding on makes us stronger but sometimes it is letting go," etc etc.
    We didn't have black forest gateaux but had the icecream equivalent dripping in amaretto p had the non alcoholic one as driving. Now in Bad Urach beautiful town staying in the Ratstube... Ate huge dinner with masses of beer....so Hermann we are definitely "letting go!!!" I am liking Germany very much. x

    Friedrichshafen

    April 1, 2018 in Germany ⋅ 🌧 6 °C

    The Zeppelin Museum and the zeppelins floating up in the sky take you back to the end of WWII. All you need to know about it and a bit of the history of aviation you can have it here. The interactive exhibition makes it also a fun place for children to learn a bit about aerodynamics. You can also take your time to stroll a bit along the pier or drive to Lindau - also a nice little city.Read more

    LinsenTomatenCurry mit Süßkartoffel Reis

    January 15 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 4 °C

    Süßkartoffel schälen und in 20 min gar kochen, nach 10 min 3/4 Tasse Reis dazugeben und zusammen fertig kochen lassen.

    In der Zwischenzeit

    Kokosöl im Wok erhitzen
    1/4 TL Fenchelsamen
    1/4 TL Kreuzkümmelsamen
    für 2 min dünsten, bis sie duften.

    100ml Wasser dazugeben, aufkochen
    1/2 Tasse gelbe Linsen hinzufügen
    1/2 Dose Tomaten d'oro Kräuter dazugeben
    Kokosmilch cremig von Rewe dazu
    Und etwas Himalaya Steinsalz

    Geschmack: die Kokoscreme schmeckt hier nicht süß, mit den Tomaten wird der Mix fein säuerlich, ähnlich wie mit Tamarinde oder Fischsoße und schmeckt dadurch wie original beim Inder👍

    Fertig! Yammi

    Bratkartoffelgemüse mit Fisch

    February 14 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 6 °C

    Genial lecker- hat mich total überrascht.

    Wieder in Zeitnot gewesen, hungrig und nur noch ein paar vorgekochte Kartoffeln von gestern ... mhhh was tun? Nur Bratkartoffeln ist langweilig, hatte ich gestern schon und mir jetzt zu trocken... und eingelegter Matjes schmeckt bestimmt sauer ...

    Aber, es ist was total geniales dabei rausgekommen:

    also:

    Matjes sind in Rapsöl eingelegt gewesen, deshalb hab ich zum Anbraten auch Rapsöl genommen (gleiches Fett, leichter verdaulich) p.s. Matjes hat wegen Zuckerzusatz gebläht, lieber frischen Fisch nehmen :-)

    1/4 gelbe Paprika klein geschnitten
    1/2 Karotte klein geschnitten
    mit Koriander und Kreuzkümmel angebraten
    vorgekochte Kartoffeln vom Vortag geschält, kleingeschnitten und dazugegeben

    alles gut ca. 10 min anbraten, Himalaysalz drüber

    Matjes mit dem Gemüse zusammen rauslegen, ein Filet abspülen, damit der Zucker weg ist und dann nur auf den Teller legen, damit es Zimmertemperatur bekommt. Schmeckt sehr fein und nicht sauer, sehr natürlich und mit dem warmen Gemüse zusammen einfach frisch, nahrhaft, leicht, eiweißreich ... super genial.

    Bin ganz glücklich :-)

    Sonne scheint und darf heute Abend nochmal Flow Air anleiten vor meiner eigenen Stunde nächste Woche :-)
