Last Thursday was the Ascension. Here in Germany, it's a holiday. Since I was just about done with my midterm week, Friday was also off. The perfect chance to travel again! This time I decided to visit my friend, Rezy, who lives in Kassel, Hessen, a little bit south-west from Halle. I spent four days, three nights there and it was the most relaxing vacation I've had in this country but not boring at all. I went home at noon on Sunday so I only had three days to explore the town. I love the intricate details of it. So here we go!
Thursday: All The Way to Hercules
|Teufelsbrücke (Devil's Bridge)|
|Onion-cream Chicken with a side Salad and Pasta|
Friday: Thai Buffet + Walk at The Park
|Astronomy and Physics Exhibition and Planetarium of Kassel|
|A ducks' paradise|
|A peacock's private dwelling|
|Kassel's City Hall|
Saturday: Journey to the Lion + Sushi Picnic
|Löwenburg (=Lion Castle)|
Special Feature: French ConnectionFrench Connection Baguetterie & Crêperie! For those of you living in Kassel or visit this town often, this crepe parlour is simply a must-try. It is small and simple, located near the main train station, two buildings after the vintage cinema in Kassel. What I love the most from this store is the adorable mascot and the wonderful interior. Apparently, they also offered mini cupcakes and macaroons. So I tried one macaroon. It was my first taste of the little thing and it tasted different from what I'd expected but was enjoyable all the same. They have many different varieties of baguette sandwiches, paninies and crepes. This is also probably the only place in Germany where you can get a Chai Latte that isn't asian-based. The lady who worked there was also very friendly and I enjoyed it all, even for only a bit. I hope you guys go there and enjoy the service. Now, now, have an enjoyable Tuesday, all! Cheerio!
P.S: The 17th was also Firu's and my 22nd monthversary!
