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。

There are days when it is just not my day. Today's that day.
I literally spent all morning lying down catching up on Vlogmas videos and then sitting down at the library reading document after document for my I could not have been more mute and yet I feel absolutely drained. And I had actually intended to write a few pages for my thesis but I have absolutely no motivation and ended up doing the "easy stuff" and just collected data.

On a brighter note, I finally got a haircut. My reason for liking to have shorter hair in the winter is quite simple: I hate having my hair get static-y after wrapping it around with my scarf. Japan has this wonderful opportunity to be a "Cut Model" and get a haircut for maybe a fourth or a fifth of the original price. Basically, trainees or assistants of the salons practice different styles on you and maybe snap a few before and after photos. Some people prefer to have their hair done by professionals but ho…


Hello again.
I'm alive and well and slightly busier/have more responsibility on my hands  since the last time that I posted. Let's just first begin by saying that I am officially a college graduate. Here's the cake and plate of gigantic Gyozas that I celebrated with: 
大学を卒業しました。 台風直撃前で良かったです。 お祝い用のケーキと巨大餃子。

I'm starting my new job soon in Hakata, which is located in the Fukuoka prefecture.  I've moved into my new apartment, which I'm really loving but the last two months have just been such a whirlwind of prepping for graduation, moving, and getting things ready for my new job, that I'm just glad I can see finally start seeing an end to the commotion. Of course work is going to be a whole new journey but for the time being, I'm glad I have a roof over my head. My room has this loft and the stairs going up to it is basically a bunch of shelves. It's my bookshelf for now and it's looking pretty cool. I have a couple more books getting sent over an…
