Last year on the same visit in the USA when we went to Jacksonville, we also visited Washington DC. We got there by Bus and stayed in an Airbnb nearby to be flexible. Nearby is an understatement though, as we still had to walk very far to get everywhere, but it was nice. Unfortunately most of the pictures look sad, because the weather was really cold and rainy when we were there in December.
I recently visited Cologne with a friend and we did some touristy things in those days we spent there.
We started with going on a viewing platform on top of a tower, which was really nice, because we could overlook the whole city. It was a warm day and we had a very nice view! We could look over the Rhine, to the cathedral, and simply the whole city. I believe we had to pay 3€ to go on the platform and we stayed there for about an hour. After that we went to a restaurant called Mongo’s which is right underneath the building. Mongo’s was really good. Their specialty are exotic meat and fish types of which we tried many different ones. Read more!
My friend and I went to Mongo’s during our cologne trip. Mongo’s is a restaurant, where you can choose from different options like “all you can eat” or going two times to the buffet or ordering à la carte. I especially like the second option, because I like to taste all the different food at a buffet, but personally I’m not able to eat that much, so that the “all you can eat” option wouldn’t really suit me as I don’t like to eat like 5 plates of food even though I’m full just because I paid for it.
Last month I visited a friend in Erfurt and most of the time I just stayed home, because she had to work. But one evening we went to this little restaurant called “Eat”. The waitress was really friendly and the restaurant had some specials, and we both chose the ‘Pulled Pork Sandwich’ with fries and a little salad. The food came really fast and It looked quite nice. It looked a bit like the food from Hard Rock Café, with the fries in an extra bucket and little sauces. It really reminded us of it. I didn’t like the salad a lot but the sandwich was really good. The bread was amazing, crunchy but still soft, the meat was also not too dry, it was really tasty. I noticed that the fries were different than usual, but I couldn’t figure out what it was, so when my friend tried them she was like: “oh they´re with cinnamon” and that was really special, it was something that I had never eaten before. Well, I hope that it was cinnamon, otherwise I’m making a fool of myself right now, but it really seemed like it.
