Germany

If you recalled, last Christmas I buggered off to somewhere white and cold backpacking. I like to call it my traditional year end soul searching trip, to round up the year, to start afresh for the new year.

I’ve chose a small town in Bavaria, Germany… anything just to run away from bustling cities.

IMG_1987aYou know you have to try Schweinshaxe (pork knuckles) when you are in Germany. To me, my trip is not complete without this classic meal, commonly served with Kartoffelklöße (potato dumpling). Its goooood.

And of coz, accompanied with German beer – Helles.

Address: Ritterstr. 6, 87629 Füssen, Germany

Start off with Beer… or actually shandy - beer mixed with sprite.

IMG_2019 Since I didn’t managed to try out Weisswurst (white sausage) which is a tradition Bavarian sausage, I’ve pick another Bavarian dish - Nürnberger Bratwurst, which is small, thin grilled sausages served with potato salad.

Address: Schrannenplatz 10, 87629 Füssen, Germany

This is Schneeballen (snowball). Theses chocolate, coconut or almond balls are actually strips of dough weaved together with amaretto marzipan, marzipan, nougat etc fillings. I never tried them myself as the shop was closed but this is yet another bavarian sweet treats…

The common junks that keep me going… Have you guessed why I returned unwell?
