We made it to Heidelberg today. This place is so charming it's impossible to take a bad picture! Any way you turn there are beautiful buildings, inviting patios, captivating shops, delicious cuisine and plenty of beer. What's not to love?
We're into our second week of our Germany (and a little bit of France) trip. Here's a quick list of a few things I like and dislike so far:
I like that beer is cheaper than water. I dislike that water is more expensive than beer! I still can't get over the fact that you can't order tap water in Germany. It's always bottled and often more expensive than a draught.
I am really pleasantly surprised by the amazing cuisine. Not only was every wiener schnitzel and spätzle thoroughly enjoyed, but the international food scene is pretty darn complete as well. I had some of the best Indian food I've had in Baden-Baden. So good we ended up going back two more times. What I dislike though is there is no spicy food in Germany! And back home I eat a LOT of spicy things!
I love how well kept, clean, and classy everything is. I'm mainly talking about the touristy areas and not so much the train stations, but in general all the German towns are just wonderful. I do, however dislike the amount of smoke and that there are always people smoking on the patios. Not so much an issue for me, but of concern when travelling with an infant.
