Hallo meine Lieben,
time for another Random Thursday post! Please feel free to link up here.
I am excited for this week's topic because I can't wait to read the other girls' posts.
I have thought about this topic a lot and I wasn't sure if there is anything worth giving a tour. I guess the house I live in would have been an idea...maybe I will do this another time. I ended up with the idea of giving you a tour through the place I grew up: the wonderful state of Saarland, Germany.
This is the town I spent my childhood in: a small village in the south-west of Germany with a nice population of 700 fantastic people. In this fantastic place you can find lots of gossip, a bakery, a hair dresser, a playground, volunteer firefighters and a bus stop. That's it.
As you can see the options in that place are limited but it was a perfect place for a wonderful childhood. I was always able to play outside and be in the nature. My best friends lived next door. There was no crime. Everybody was friendly and gave you candy.
Another plus of my hometown is that it is located very close to France, Luxembourg and even Belgium isn't very far. Great to do some awesome trips. And to get cheaper gas, coffee and alcohol.
When I started to go to the "Gymnasium" - which is not a place where you work out but one of the school types in Germany - I had to take one of the 3 buses that stopped at my village each day to the next "bigger" city. Which was exciting for sure. I mean, come on, it was a city with a population of 30.000 people. Wow. That place even had stores!
When I started university I moved to an even bigger city. Unbelievable but true: the capital of my home state has a population of 176.000 people. I know, you can't really compare this to any of the bigger cities in America but it was still the biggest city in my home state.
That places had good stores. Not just stores. No, stores you want to buy something. And clubs and restaurants and museums. Wow.
There are different things my home state is famous for.
Some disgusting sausage called Lyoner. You can see me eating it in the following picture. Probably one of the last times I ate meat.
A company which is world famous for making dinnerware and stuff like that.
We don't use a grill, we use a "Schwenker". If you dare to call it "grill" you must have to leave the state.
And some other really fascinating things. As you can see, the place I come from is the most exciting place ever.
I hope you enjoyed my little tour.
Have a great day!
