Gosh its gone fast. I can’t actually believe I have been here a month already. And what a month its been.
Week one – A truly German introduction
Well I think its pretty safe to say I started my German life in the most German way possible- with a trip to Munich for Oktoberfest.
The whole place was mad. So many people, so much beer, so, so much fun. Thankfully we had a table reserved which came with vouchers for beer and food. Not being much of a beer drinker I still managed to polish off 3 steins which were a litre of beer each.
It was not all beer, once we managed to leave the tent we thought it would be a wise idea to head on the dodgems, and the worlds sketchiest roller-coaster. I unfortunately didn’t manage to take any pictures of these which is a shame. I do however remember fearing for my life on said roller-coaster.
Later this week I was lucky enough to a second trip to Munich, this time for a round of champions league football. I was able to experience the full perks of a partner who works for adidas, as we lived the high life for an evening with full hospitality service. 3 Glasses of champagne later and a cracking game of football I had, had a truly excellent evening.
Weeks Two and Three – Scenery and sweet treats
One of the main things I love about Nuremberg is the absolutely beautiful architecture. It is simply stunning.
Just going on a walk to the shops you see so much, it really is a beautiful city.
These delicious tortes were from Cafe Wohlleben near Maxfeld. I had the Sour Cherry Totre, whilst my friend opted for the Lemon and Thyme Torte. Both absolutely gorgeous in this wonderful little cafe.
I forgot to take a picture but I also paid a Trip to La Violetta. Another amazing cafe, rather busy with good reason. The coffees were amazing.
This week was another amazing week- I got to see more of Germany with a trip to Berlin. I will post about that later this week!
All in all, I’ve really enjoyed my time here so far. Met some awesome people and have managed to find time to relax, write this blog and generally explore my new city. Its safe to say it is another life compared to teaching!
