Germany Trip Part 2: Nuremberg


Exams are finally finished and I am feeling liberated and full of euphoria. The past two weeks have been two of the toughest ever for me for many reasons but I can finally get back with my life and that, I am very grateful for. A much needed group skype session with two of the most amazing people kicked off my post-exam period to a wonderful start. Looking forward to another amazing semester of study abroad!
Speaking of exams, I saw this beautiful rainbow crossing over my university a couple days ago after my exam. I couldn't help but snap a picture.


Now off to part 2 of my Germany trip in Nuremberg.
Apparently this city is known for being the camp site for Hitler's Nazis and so we decided to visit the museum in tribute its history. The building itself was the actual camp, which was kind of hard to wrap my head around but I was a little disappointed that there weren't more artifacts on display. All in all, I think it's a museum worth visiting.
There were other famous spots nearby so we took a walk around.

ニュルンベルクはRed Beerが有名だということでこじんまりとしたバーに入り二人でゆっくりしました。とても飲みやすくて美味しかったです。ヨーロッパのゆったりとした時間の過ごし方好きです。

I think we can all agree that our main objective in Germany is beer, ya mine too haha
We went into a lovely cozy bar to drink Nuremberg's famous Red beer. It was extremely easy to drink and not to mention extremely cheap! 2 euros for a jug?! Unbelievable...but I'm not complaining.
We chilled and talked and all was wonderful.


Fries and sauerkraut.


Of course, we had to stop by the Christmas Market. I might be a little slow on the information but German Christmas Market's are some of the most famous in the world. There were plenty of tourists to prove that.


The famous Lebkuchen cookies. My sister, who's studying German, recommended them to me, and the best description I can give is that they are German gingerbread cookies. They're quite delicious and I couldn't help but stop and buy one for myself a couple times throughout my time in Nuremberg.


Chloe mentioned that the Pretzels from this store is quite famous. I was surprised at the variety of Pretzels available since the most that I've ever really seen was that at Auntie Anne's. I decided to go with the ones with pumpkin seeds.


The Nuremberg Castle.
I felt like I was entering a storybook that I read when I was younger even though I couldn't quite pinpoint which one.


And the best part: the view.
We came here after the museum so it got me thinking what this view looked like 75 years ago during the war.

少し迷子になってしまってGoogle Mapsに頼る友達。

Got a little lost but that's ok.
I actually like not planning much and getting a bit lost during trips.
Sometimes, you find the best things when you're lost.


Nuremberg was actually my favorite city from my Germany trip and I would love to go back again.
It was an extremely laid back, relaxing, and beautiful place with lovely people where I felt refreshed from just walking around.


See you back for Munich!

今日は用事でOpéraの方に行ってきました。いつもならちょっと早く出て、散歩しながら行こうかなとも思うのですが、今日はたまたま大雨。傘の上手な使い方をいまいち理解していないというか下手なわたしは、正直さしていてあまり意味がなかった様な気がします。笑 さすがに歩くのはちょっと大変だなと思ったので、今回はメトロⓂ️を使うことにしました。 帰りにも少しだけ入ったGalerie Lafayetteを一周してきました。高級ブランドがたくさんあり、さすがに買い物はできませんでしたが、見ているだけでも楽しい空間でした。靴のコーナーを撮り忘れてしまったことがちょっと悔しいです。ちょっと変わった形や色のものからクラシックな形のものまでたくさんあって、モール全体をわたしのウォークインクローゼットにしたいくらいでした。

前回入れなかったユニクロ。 ちょ〜オシャレでした。 お店のレイアウト、ディスプレー全てがなんだか高級感たっぷりでした。 値段も日本より少し高め?のような気もしました。


Exploring Paris Solo

One of the reasons why I really love Paris is that it's a great place to be for soloist like me. I prefer wandering alone at my own pace, although having company is great as well. Either way, exploring a city alone has really allowed me to get in touch with myself and make my own discoveries and meet new people. It was just one of those days when my insides were nudging me to get out and that is exactly what I did.
I've always wanted to brunch at Angelina and thought, why not just go? I took a trip down to Rue Rivoli and ordered the brunch best. Aaaaa the famous chocolat chaud was just as smooth and decadent as I had heard it was. It was like drinking a melted chocolate bar. (*all of my photos showed up yellow, I don't know why but please overlook it)

The Post I Forgot to Upload Last Week

I was near Opera today for a commitment and while I would usually leave a little early so that I could walk to my destination, I decided otherwise when I saw that it was pouring rain. I took the Metro for the first time in a while. I obviously brought an umbrella with me but I always question whether I need it or not since I somehow get wet anyways. I stopped by Galerie Lafayette to look around. All the high end products are not too friendly for my budget but the mall is like one big art exhibit that you can enjoy just strolling around in.

Stepped into the UNIQLO that I was too sccared to walk into last time and was in awe at how chic everything looked. There was a totally different atmosphere to the ones I am used to in Japan. I think the prices were also a tad bit higher.

Talk soon!
