Continuing on from my last post, the third day of the trip was packed with events since we decided to visit both Strasbourg and Heidelberg in one day.
Day 3: Strasbourg, France
But first, lunch (featuring bunch of random things from Migros): protein seeded bread, avocado, ‘Toscana’ spreadable cream, chocolate soy milk.
Strasbourg isn’t too far from Konstanz (where we stayed) so we made it there in little time.
I only saw these kind of cathedrals in TV shows or documentaries so it took me a while to absorb everything before registering how gorgeous this place was. Look at those beautiful candle offerings!
We were also able to access a view from the top of the cathedral. Maybe I’ve gone slightly out of shape, but the endless stairs were a bit tiring (my mom, on the other hand, was totally out of breath).
Unfortunately, my camera acted up against me during the later half of the day, so I have zero record of my Heidelberg visit. Oh well, at least I got to enjoy the moment~ best record is great memories, right?
Day 4: Frankfurt/Berlin
This is the only picture I have of Frankfurt, because tbh we spent 3 hours at the Frankfurt airport using the restroom and eating McDonald’s. By the way, not sure if anyone else was aware of this, but McDonald’s is so much cooler overseas. Like half of the places I’ve been to used touch screen self-ordering system and the menu had different things (like fancy sauce bottles). I still hate McDonald’s anyways, but it was interesting to see the difference between the ones in the states and the ones elsewhere.
First day of sightseeing in Berlin! We did the usual touristy stuff like visiting the Brandenburger Tor, Berlin Cathedral, Berlin wall, etc. The only thing I brushed past was Checkpoint Charlie because it was in the middle of the street and there were swarms of people trying to get pictures. I didn’t have the energy nor the determination to do that. Plus, it was probably the best place for pick-pocketers to get their hands on something.
And who can leave out currywurst when in Berlin?! And don’t worry this is vegan 🙂 If you go to Curry 36, there’s this vegan beauty for 2,50 Euros. If you’re lucky, the line for this place will be short.
To cool myself down in the 35°C weather, I got a simple Oolong tea to sip on from Comebuy Bubble Tea. I’m not sure if there are any vegan milk options, but if you’re like me and enjoy unsweetened tea to quench thirst, then this is a good option.
More on Berlin on the next post! See you soon~
