NurembergJune 7 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 68 °F
Day 1 - Arrived in Nuremberg after a 2.5 hour car ride, checked into the hotel and got cleaned up. We walked around for a bit and decided on some traditional german food for dinner at a mid evil
restaurant. Early to bed, Klaus starts his first day the the exhibition tomorrow.
Day 2 - Klaus woke up early and started his day, I got ready and explored the town getting my steps in. I did some shopping for a pair of jeans after realizing the weather was not as warm as Croatia or Italy. I had a relaxing evening reading my book at a Cafe with a couple of Aperols. Klaus had a team dinner and got home later in the evening.
Day 3 - Klaus had his first day of the exhibition. I woke up and walked to the main city center where I started my day with the fluffiest cappuccino I have ever had. I boarded a cute little train and did the narrated city tour. After the tour and a 25 minute walk I grabbed an iced tea from a cute little coffee shop in a residential area. I then got an amazing massage at a Thai massage studio. Back to the hotel for my dinner with Klaus. Klaus picked me up from the hotel, 1st stop new shoes, the pair we bought in Italy hurt his feet. After finding new shoes we went to the restaurant by the water that I had discovered during my tour, only to be told it was going to rain and we couldn’t sit outside. We ended up at a tapas restaurant were we enjoyed some food and a bottle of red wine. Ironically Klaus’s team from work chose the same place so I was able to talk and get to know some of them. We walked back to the room and headed to bed.
Day 4 - Klaus woke up, got ready and brought me some orange juice and a croissant before he left to the exhibition. I got dressed and ready for my adventure of driving and exploring the town of Rothenburg an der Tauber. The drive wasn’t to bad, it took about an hour and I managed to following the german signs and laws without fail. Unfortunately it was raining when I arrived. I parked and made my way to a cafe for a cappuccino and to warm up. The rain let up and I enjoyed my afternoon exploring the charming town. I made my way back to the car, put the Nuremberg hotel in the gps and set off for the drive home. Forty minutes into the drive it all went to shit, the freeway was closed and everyone had to exit. What should have been an hour ride back turned into 3.15 hours. I was exhausted and feeling a little under the weather, I opted to not meet up with Klaus and some colleagues for dinner and watched movies in bed.
Day 5 - Klaus left for the final day of the exhibition. We both woke up with the sniffles and a little headache, so I lounged around for a bit before getting cleaned up and ready for the day. I took a scooter and went and explored another residential area and a vintage t-shirt store for Bryce. I made my way back to the hotel, put the bags away and headed to a Cafe for lunch. I spent the afternoon reading, and having an aperol. Klaus met up with me later when his day had finished up. We walked and explored for a bit before making our way to the long anticipated mid evil who that we signed up for. Upon arrival and being seated we were told it was canceled for the night. 😞😞 We walked for a bit and decided on an Italian restaurant for dinner. After dinner we walked back to the hotel only to realize I lost the room key. We had to call and wait 20 minutes for a staff member to drive to the hotel to let us in. We needed to login to the E MED website to take our covid test for tomorrow s flight. I went first, and tested positive. Total turn of events!!! 😢😔 Klaus called the airlines and changed our flight to return on Tuesday instead, the first day the testing requirements would be lifted. Off to bed, we both don’t feel good.
Day 6 - We checked out of the hotel and switched to one down the road that had air conditioning and a balcony for the next few days. What a crummy end of the trip, didn’t feel well at all.
Few days later- We were starting to feel better and needed to make our way back to Frankfurt for the flight the next day. First stop Fürth, walked for a bit and grabbed an aperol. Next stop, an amazing town called Würzburg, we walked around and visited the famous bridge where everyone enjoys the beauty of the surroundings while enjoying a glass of wine on the bridge. We loved the vibe and scenery and definitely will be back to explore it more including the castle. We had dinner at a tapas restaurant before finishing the drive to Frankfurt. What a beautiful sunset drive that included singing 80 duets together. I checked us in while Klaus dropped the rental car off. Off to bed for the flight home tomorrow.Read more
