Day 3: Lichtenstein and Hohenzollern castle tour

Today we visited two very beautiful castle in Baden-Württemberg, namely Schloss Lichtenstein which you see on the very first picture and Schloss Hohenzollern on our way back to home. Weather was playful whole day, switching between rain, cold wind, followed by gorgeous rainbow and sun. The pictures are not edited, thus you can clearly see how beautiful experience it was to live a day like.

Day 2 - Konstanz & Meersburg

Today we spend amazing day at gorgeous Bodensee. Firstly we made quick sightseeing tour in Konstanz city. Being honest, we were very disappointed as most of the restaurants & cafes were closing right at lunchtime and refused to serve us. Well, this is even more unusual bearing in mind the holiday season when the city is full of tourists and actually that should be the right time for such business to flourish. Lastly we found very tiny Thai restaurant, which even though was closing as well, did us a favor and agreed to cook for us as last guests for the day :D

Later, after the lunch break, we walked to the harbour and took a ferry to Meersburg, which was full of tourists as well. We decided to enjoy the beautiful view on the bodensee with ice, cake and cold drinks. 

So the day was amazing and here are some pictures to share with you guys )
Again respecting the privacy of our german friends, I post only the pictures of mine 

 Have to admit: today I was extremely lucky to manage capturing at least some pictures of Falko )

 Have to be sincere, that this is my favourite picture of the day.

Rainy Bern

This week is very special as our good friends visit us in Freiburg. After having a lazy, chilling Sunday, we decided to make small sightseeing in Bern. As most of our day trips, this city is located in around hour and half way from where I live, thus quite comfortable distance to cover in a day and still be not exhausted. Compared to other Swiss cities which I have visited so far(Geneva, Zürich)  since my stay in Germany, Bern did not look as posh as others. This is not a city where the luxury you see in the streets, on what people wear or drive spins your head, but instead more lively, active,  ''down on earth'' type of atmosphere which makes you feel very welcome in town. The curly small streets inspire you to wander through and enjoy the lovely views and architecture of the city. So here are some pics to share with you from the trip

P.s. In case you wonder why I am the only one depicted on pics when  I all the time talk about friends reunion in this post, the reason is that I am not really sure they would be ok with spreading their pictures on blog.

  I totally loved this sweet hat shop; sad that it was closed.

 One thing I found very exciting are these cellars, being built in right directly from the main street, having different fascinating doors and used for various purposes: like lollipop shop, bicycle repair etc.

Although the weather was not really good today, I strongly recommend to visit the city in case you have a chance. It is definitely worth it.
