Darmstadt is located south of Frankfurt. I went there to do a bit of shopping but I also spent a few hours relaxing in the “Prinz Georgs Garten”, a very English-style garden with beautiful flowers and quiet atmosphere. Yeah, I miss London a lot sometimes…
This picture of a residential area below reminds a lot of New York…
Here are the pictures of the park… a good place to relax after an intense week of work 🙂
Back to France for the weekend! It’s only a 2 hours journey by train so I met lots of German with bikes and backpacks ready to invade France for 2 days with me.
Strasbourg is definitely one those towns half-german and half-french – I visited the area called “La Petite France” just near the train station – lovely spot. Enjoy the pictures!
In Germany, you have a good choice of vegetarian and vegan food. Here are a few items I bought recently from the local organic shop. Lots of sausages and cheese, I can feel the difference with UKvegan food.
I have learnt some basic requests such as “ohne ei, ohne milch?” (no egg, no milk?). But in general, people here do know the difference between “vegetarisch” and “vegane”.
In southern Hesse, you have lots of hills you can climb and you will find there lovely vineyards. Today I visited the Auerbach area. Great views from the top.
