The sky was gray during that visit. It was winter and this is what you can expect during this season of the year. Regensburg is one of my favorite cities especially in the region of Bavaria, commonly known as Bayern in German. It is a beautiful city and its medieval centre is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
I can’t exactly remember how many times did I already visited the place but when I have visitors from afar, I always take them here.
Regensburg, also known as Ratisbon in English is a historic city and it is considered as one of the oldest town of Germany. It was founded by the Romans in 179 A.D.
I had a doctor’s appointment in Regensburg last week. I have to wake-up early to catch the train, making it sure that I won’t be late. It was a cold winter morning. I still have to drive to the train station for around 15 minutes. I thought I will be late because the road was quite slippery and driving faster is quite not possible. I was thankful that I made it on time, bought my ticket and still have enough time to catch the train.
The interior of the Arcaden Mall in Regensburg, Bavaria, Germany.
After my doctor’s appointment, I decided to stop-by at the mall. The Arcaden mall is just some minutes walk from my doctor’s clinic. Since it is almost lunch time, I decided to take a lunch first at the sushi bar in the mall. I ordered a Bento Lachs which really taste so good. (more…)
Hey folks, I am gladly back here! How’s everyone doing? And how’s your first weeks of the year 2015? This is a very late greetings but still I am wishing you all a wonderful and blissful New Year 2015! So far, my first days of the year went well.
First of all, I want to express my gratitude for the year 2014. It is so far a great year for me. So many wonderful things happened during that year especially in my travels. It might not be a great as 2013 when I traveled to 22 countries especially in Europe but still I am thankful that I visited some places last 2014.
El Nido, Palawan in the Philippines is one of the islands I visited during that vacation last 2014.
So far I visited Poland, Philippines, Malaysia, Poland, Italy, Austria, San Marino, Singapore, Morocco, a stop-over in Hongkong and also did some trips in Germany. Wow, that is so far three continents in a year with Asia, Europe and Africa. The highlight of my travels was the vacation I had in my home country, Philippines and the many trips I did in the different islands there. (more…)
Switzerland is one of the 22 countries (or I would say 23 over-all including my second home Germany) I visited last 2013. It was so far the most traveled year I had during my existence on planet earth. I am wondering if it will happen again? As of now, I had visited 6 countries and many cities especially in Asia and Europe.
St. Moritz is one of the places I experienced in Switzerland last summer 2013. During that time, we took the Bernina Express from Tirano, Italy to Pontresina, a municipality in the district of Maloja in the canton of Graubünden in Switzerland. From there, we took the bus going to St. Moritz.
The Tower of the Church in St. Moritz. This was taken during my visit in summer 2013.
Festivals all year round! These are some of the things I love in Germany. You can experience it in any seasons of the year. These so-called Volksfest or People’s Fair for example are very prevalent not only on summer season but also on spring and autumn or fall seasons. Imagine going to the world’s most famous and biggest festival, the Oktoberfest in Munich!
A beer tent in one of the Volksfest I attended in Bavaria, Germany. It is still not full when we went inside.
The one held in Stuttgart known as the Canstatter Volkfest is also a fabulous festival to visit. Although this Volksfest is not strictly speaking a beer festival, it is considered by many to be the second largest beer celebration in the world after the Munich Oktoberfest. (more…)
I was wondering if summer sale in Germany is still not over. I know the month of August is over now in some parts of the globe especially in Asia. I still have almost an hour to savour the moment here in Europe and I will finally say goodbye to my most favorite month. I am gladly welcoming the first BER month of September. How about you? (more…)
