    La torre reunion 1

    September 20, 2016 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 16 °C

    This was a really special week: after almost two years of not seeing each other, my Monterrey roommates Argelia and Philipp came to visit me in Tübingen. Until the last moment I couldn't believe it would really happen, for it was a pretty spontaneous trip for both of them and Mexico is but exactly close. However, when they arrived it felt like we had just jumped right from the exchange to Tübingen without ever being separated.
    We started of by buying some of the last wine and chocolate at the already closing annual market with vendors from Italy and Spain (as we had to wait half an hour for the next bus, they didn't quite make it all the way to my flat).
    The next day, we took a good long walking tour through the town, including a ride on the Stocherkahn (a little boat resembling the Venice gondolas). Through it was a long day, after a nice quesadilla and guacamole dinner plus some tequila Argelia had brought with her, we were fit for the karaoke party at the Black Sheep.
    While I had to work the following day, the two others had the chance to go to the chocolate factory of Ritter Sport.

    July 6, 2017 in Germany ⋅ 🌙 23 °C

    Visited historic university city Tübingen today. We walked through the historic city center, saw the castle Hohentübingen, went on a boat tour (Stocherkahnfahrt), and had some delicious German food.

    September 28, 2017 in Germany ⋅ ☀️ 18 °C

    Once again we had lovely weather for our last day in London. We decided to take a walk around Chelsea and chanced upon the home of Thomas and Jane Carlyle. The house is set up as it was in the mid nineteenth century. We then spent a couple of hours at the Physic Garden; including a wonderful lunch, tour and then afternoon tea. Walking round Chelsea is certainly checking out how the other half live! In the evening, we headed into central London to watch The Toxic Avenger; great show.Read more

    Today we left London and it was wet and miserable. We flew Easy jet to Stuttgart, the plane was full of loud Poms wearing lederhosen; not a pretty sight. We had a long drive to Tubingen due to road works. Met Liz and John and all the English rellies for dinner. Looking forward to the wedding tomorrow. 🤗Read more

    September 30, 2017 in Germany ⋅ ☀️ 19 °C

    So today was the big day. We had beautiful weather to start with, but by late afternoon the rain started. The day started with a short but steep walk up to The Wurmlinger chapel for the wedding ceremony; Joanna looked lovely in Liz's old wedding dress. Following the ceremony, we made our way down the hill to enjoy cake and coffee. We also released many heart shaped balloons which had been the theme on the invitations. We then set off on our walk to Tubingen through the forest; stopping for champagne on the way. We then convened at the Museum Restaurant for the reception. A long, but very special day.Read more
