Weekly Wonders: Food, Castles, and Reggaeton

Apart from our trip to the Neuschwanstein Castle on Monday, July 10th, the rest of the week was not very spectacular. Most of the time, I had to work until late. Still, I managed to do some stuff:

 

1,2+3. As I have already described in my last blog post, I have visited the Neuschwanstein Castle in FΓΌssen, and it was AMAZING! You can read all about it here.

4. I have also finished this book: “Read this if you want to be Instagram-famous” which I got as a birthday giftΒ as you can read on my blogpost here. The book was actually really good and very interesting.

5. On Thursday, we went to our local ice cream parlour to have some delicious ice cream bowls. I also got one of my last birthday presents – a huge see-through umbrella :)
I also got my new passport, finally :)

6.+7. On Sunday, we went to a summer party called Latin Island together with our cousin. First we ate something. Without hesitation, I chose the grilled shrimp skewers. Later, we sat by the pool after we finished eating and being fed up with the wasps swarming over our dishes. In the early evening, we decided to move to the dance floor and mingled with the crowd. It was a great party on a sunday afternoon/early evening.

 

I hope you guys had an even more amazing week!

Thank you for reading! See you next week on Weekly Wonders!

Merveille.

A very hot day in June

After I have arrived at home at noon, I changed my clothes and went to Stuttgart with my sister. The weather was great, not too hot, not too cold. But unfortunately the sun hid behind the clouds as soon as we sat down on the sunbeds.

After we spent a bit of time lying there and enjoying the few rays of light, we went a little bit shopping, then we met our friend who was late because the trains were stuck.

I have tried this on at Zara, and I fell in love with this, but I didn’t have much money with me to be able to buy this :/ Tomorrow I will look if I can find this maybe :)

After we met our friend we went to eat something somewhere. At first we wanted to go eat mexican, but then we found a spanish restaurant and decided to stay there. The problem was that the only spanish meal they had were tapas (which can’t be considered a meal, because it is just something like finger food) and paella. I was mega hungry, so I ordered a mixed paella pan, with chicken and seafruits. My sister also ordered a paella but only with chicken, because she doesn’t like seafood. Our friend ordered a tapa with vegetables. The latter one arrived early. But our paella took a bit long. When it arrived my sister was shocked because of the huge shrimp on top of my pan. :’D

The shock however, happened after we already began to eat. My sister fished something slippery and white out of her paella. She looked at it as though she was going to vomit :’D It looked like an eye of an octopus. And even I was disgusted. Then, as though it was not enough, some little tentacles appeared in the paella :S We guessed that her pan was supposed to be mine, but they just put the shrimp on the wrong pan because my sister ordered one with only chicken. But to be honest: I would have also been disgusted because the eye and the tentacles looked as though they were the leftovers of a delicious, fried octopus or something. And it even looked raw because it was so slippery. My sister refused to eat her meal and complained at the waitress for mixing up the pans. They took it and brought her a new one, without any octopus-excrements of course :D But my sister still was disgusted and lost her appetite. I was also not able to finish my meal, because it was just too much. I also had problems with cracking the shrimp open, although it was very tasty.

In the end, we decided to never eat a paella again, at least not in Germany. But I also have to admit: I didn’t have a good first impression of the spanish kitchen now. I love fish and seafood, but I think the turkish, italian, and asian kitchen are more successful with that :D

After a strange meal we went to something amazing and yummy what we were looking forward to the whole day :D FROZEN YOGHURT! My sister got a coupon from Groupon, for 3 big cup froyos :D

we went there, filled our yoghurts with endless toppings and sat in front of the shop and ate our froyos with pleasure so that almost everyone who walked by saw us with our fat cups, and thousand colorful, bright toppings, went inside and bought one, too :D We were simply living advertisement for this shop :’D It was really funny, we even had a laughflash :D

After we finished this paradisical desert, we slowly headed back to the train station. However we were hindered by the demos there and stayed a bit to watch them. The sun was still shining though :) After a while then, we went to the station and sat on the train back home :)
