If you’re a foodie, this one’s for you.
They say that if you really want to remember your trip abroad, you should take pictures of your meals. Apparently, looking back on photos of food can elecit some very vivid memories, so I was sure to take lots when I was in Europe just last week. (Gosh, has it really only been one week?) Was I ashamed to whip out my big, obnoxious DSLR every time the server brought a dish around? Yes. Did I do it anyway?
Germans do this thing called eiskaffee and it’s nothing short of legendary. Think root beer float with cold coffee instead of root beer. Sound good? That’s ’cause it is.
Germans eat their french fries, called pommes, with ketchup and mayo and it’s SO SO SO GOOD
This lunch in Strasbourg changed my life a little.
One of the absolute highlights of this entire trip was when we went to the French market, bought all the cheese, meat, baguettes and wine we could carry, and then drank/ate to our hearts’ desire at a picnic on the canal.
I tried a famous Croque Monsieur! It was definitely just a glorified ham and cheese sandwich, but it was the best darn glorified ham and cheese sandwich I’ve ever had.
“Ice cream” in German is eis, pronounced like the English “ice.” This was cause for many confusing exchanges at the start of our trip, in which I repeatedly ordered “ice cream cream.”
I hope this seafood pasta and rosé look good because together they constituted the most expensive meal I had on this trip. Darn you, Swiss bankers, and your astronomical cost of living.
I’ll forever be a coffee and cake after dinner kind of gal.
Now’s a good time to stop reading 🙂
…yeah okay so this happened.
Honestly, I’m not even sorry. This was the absolute call at 2 AM. #LongLiveLateNight
