19.04. – 21.04.2014: Weekend in Büdingen, Hessen.

Last week we went to our family friends to visit the mother because she had a brain operation one week before. We drove on Saturday, at about 2 or 3 pm, and were happy to see her in her normal condition again. The only difference was a patch of shaved hair on her head, but it is only seen if looked closely.

We arrived in the evening. We have also prepared some food and took there with us, so they wouldn’t need to cook anything for us. The first evening was rather eventless. We played with the dogs, and I read some books. The next day was Easter Sunday. We wanted to walk through the city, because it was so sunny. First, we went to eat ice cream. My sister and I ordered an ice-cream cup with fruits, but the cup tasted like vomit :S

After we finished with eating and drinking, we walked around the town. It is a rather old town with many historic buildings.

Do you see the squirrel on the picture? It is climbing up very fast :’D While I shot this photo I didn’t realize there was a squirrel on the tree. Only when I edited the photo I realized that there was an animal on the photo :’D What a lucky shot!

As we walked around, we saw a museum that displays miniature vehicles. So we went in to have a look. It was for free.

After walking around a little bit, we got tired and thirsty, so we went to the Jerusalemer Tor to drink something in the Biergarten. On the way back we saw this cute Irish Pub.

My brother ordered a Pils, and Pelin ordered a Cappuccino. Me and my sister ordered a Hessen Hugo. Hugo is a drink that is usually mixed with bubbly, mint leaves, and elderflower syrup. It is a tasty drink which is usually drunk during warmer days. The Hessen Hugo is mixed with cider instead of bubbly. It tastes good as well, although I like the normal one a bit more, because it is a bit more refreshening.

In the evening, we wanted to go to the cinema first, because it was Pelin’s sister’s birthday the next day, but of course, we had this idea just at 10 pm, and we wouldn’t make it to the next screening. So we stayed at home, watched a movie and played games. It was fun, too.

The next day we prepared for the ride back home. The weather was warm and sunny in Hessen, but as soon as we reached Stuttgart it began to rain. When we got home I got ready again to go to my friend’s birthday party. It has been a few weeks since the last time I saw her. She was in Spain during the semester vacations, and before that we had exam stress (Well, I wasn’t too stressed out last semester :’D). But it was nice to catch up.

I realized that there are still a lot of sights to see in Germany :’D In October I am going to Köln for one day with an old friend from my high school days. Why? There is the Harry Potter Exhibition Tour!!! *o* There are displaying requisites from the movies. So, similar to the WB Studio Tours. Maybe those objects are actually from London, and are “touring” Europe :’D I am not so sure yet. I have to get informed a bit more until then, but I am soooo excited!!!! And I also have never been to Köln, so it will be the first time.

What about you? Are there still cities in your home country you still have to visit?

Thanks for reading.
