First stop - Freiburg, Blackforest, Germany

Time: 6:33am
Weather: Brrr (-7deg)
Vanue: Freiburg, Blackforest, Germany
Mood: Woke up 2:30am.. too early! excited to explore their little lanes..
Peak Agenda: No fixed plan.. hb off to two meetings in an hr... i will take both my kids to explore this town called Freiburg..



We got into Frankfurt safely and since it was our first time on the A380.. it was indeed a lovely experience.. I sat next to Sonia where we later found out that there was an empty seat next to her.. she managed to sleep all the way.. who wouldnt when u can stretch ur leg to the limit hehe. i managed to watch 4 movies in total.. typical me - i simply cannot sleep in planes be it on short plane rides or 30 odd hr plane journey (to BAs, Argentina)



Anyway as soon as we got here.. hb picked up his rental car and off we drove to Freiburg.. it was only a 3hrs car ride and with 2 stops we got here safely.. Alhadullilah.. we will be here for a total of 3 days and will continue on our journey to France - pic with Hairi was taken at 10am - no sun!



"Freiburg im Breisgau, is a city in Baden-Württemberg, Germany. In the extreme south-west of the country, it straddles the Dreisam river, at the foot of the Schlossberg. Historically, the city has acted as the hub of the Breisgau region on the western edge of the Black Forest in the Upper Rhine Plain. One of the famous old German university towns, and archiepiscopal seat, Freiburg was incorporated in the early 12th century and developed into a major commercial, intellectual, and ecclesiastical centre of the upper Rhine region. The city is known for its ancient university and its medieval minster, as well as for its high standard of living and advanced environmental practices. The city is situated in the heart of a major wine-growing region and serves as the primary tourist entry point to the scenic beauty of the Black Forest. According to meteorological statistics, the city is the sunniest and warmest in Germany." - Wikipedia

"Sunniest and warmest"?? hahaha... Well it is indeed sunny... but still at -4C...

Ouch is that me fm behind? yikes.. look at that butt!! hahaha.. blaming it on my double legging, thermal, shirt, sweater, jackets and all the butter cake that i consumed bef my flight kahkahkah... Off looking for food.. no issue finding a halal Doner kebab here..

So of cos while looking for a place to eat.. ahem.. we saw a little market around the Cathedral area.. hv to.. no reasoning pls.. hv to check it out eventho our tummy was growling hehe


... and this is what i found... Remember my post on Spekulatius Shortcrust Biscuit? i found the mold.. yehaaaa.. didnt cost as much as i thought it wud be so bought a couple and cant wait to use it.. best deal... it comes with the original recipe too!


'Freiburg Minster (German: Freiburger Münster or Münster Unserer Lieben Frau) is the Cathedral of Freiburg, southwest Germany. The last duke of Zähringen had started the building around 1200 in romanesque style, the construction continued in 1230 in Gothic style. The minster was partly built on the foundations of an original church that had been there from the beginning of Freiburg in 1120. In 1827 the Minster became the seat of the Catholic archbishop of Freiburg and thus a Cathedral' .. ty Wikipedia!

Looking at the photos of you with the kids in Freiburg makes me recall my visit there in 2010. It was summer, the town green, lots and lots of flowers and it was sunny. I like it. Actually i went to the University of Freiburg attached to the surgery department for 2 weeks. Nice platz ..Went to Lake Titisee as well by train. I like the public transport so efficient. I didn't miss any of your entry coz i like so much how your baking turn up. Fantastic and superb!

Rima said...

I know what u mean.. whenever kita watch telly ker and they show the places that we hv been.. kita boleh macam kerang busuk.. tersengeh sambil remember our experience kat negeri orang.. that is priceless.. right??

I selalu tell my kids.. things that are priceless is the most memorable one.. if u can afford it.. pergi tengok negeri orang cos travelling buka minda seseorang..

Yes she was sitting kat horn tu.. we stayed at Mercure htl so location wise is superb..
