a visit in Erlangen

What a lovely city, Erlangen. It’s located in the enjoyable Frankenland, in east Bavaria. The city is stuffed with churches and the food is focused on meat. In every little or bigger village there’s a brewery. And the beers are excellent. Not to forget, the landscape is beautiful and perfect for wandering. It’s definitely one of my favorite vacation spots in Germany.

On Wednesday I woke up way to early in my hotel room. First I played a little while some games on my iPhone, but then I looked out the window and saw what a beautiful day it was. So I got myself dressed and used the time till breakfast to take a little photo walk around Erlangen. It was really cold, but the light was so lovely that I almost forgot about it. In the park I was followed by three doves, picking around me, hoping for some bread crumbs. Every step a little closer. It was so funny to watch.

summer in the city

“Hot town summer in the city
Back of my neck getting dirty and gritty
Been down, isn’t it a pity
Doesn’t seem to be a shadow in the city
All around people looking half dead
Walking on the sidewalk hotter than a match head”
 The Lovin’ Spoonful

What a heat! It’s been really hot this weekend in Germany. We hit 36°C and more,  most of the time it was just cruel. When we went home from the beach at the Wannsee, it was hard to breathe the hot, moist air. Although I’m still really beat-up by this heat, I’m happy that we finally have a real summer again here in Germany. We’ve waited long enough for this, so I want to enjoy every minute of it.
