I promised I´m going to write something about my "new life" in Germany. I´m here just for three months so it´s something like "first things I found different here and I love them" =D
So we live in a beautiful, quite big, flat in the city centre of Ingolstadt. I took a lot of photos of the town when I was there in summer (part 1 and part 2). It´s a smaller city near Munich in Bavaria. Bavarian flags, food and beer are everywhere =D And I found out I like it a lot, so far I tried roasted pork knee, weiss wurst with prezel and this amazing horseradish mustard and of course variety of beers. I absolutely don´t get why czech people are bragging about Czech Republic being "a land of beer" because here even in our tiny local store with drinks there is like fifty kinds of beers from different breweries to choose from. And they all taste so much MUCH better that the czech beer ! To be honest, I almost never drunk beer back at home, only in special beer restaurants where they had something different than those ordinary ones.
I didn´t wanted to talk about food from the start...but well...I did =D
But it tastes so much better here ! It´s much more expensive, yeah but...I never thought it was THIS bad in Czech Republic, now I realy have a feeling I was eating a trash which the rest of Europe don´t want. Everything here is so fresh, especially in bakery. I love those local bakeries <3 All of it is warm when you buy it and tastes so yummy ! ( What a change for me after those frozen, than baked again shits they called baguette, which I ate back at home.)
Beer is not the only one thing I started to like.
I didn´t eat yogurts for years. I didn´t like them. I ate them only when we were on vacation in Italy, but I never ate those I could buy at home. And now ? I eat them for breakfast omg =D (I know it´s completelly normal for everyone, but I never even thought about eating that ugly thing for breakfast!)
They´re so delicious, with so many fancy flavours - coconut, gooseberry, lemon, champagne,Mozart balls and even yogurt which is like...inverse - you have more of the fruits and then a cup of yogurt/sweet sauce *o*
But the craziest thing I found in supermarket fridge is Götter Speize !
ha ha I remember there was something like this when I was small, but I was probably too small, so I´m not sure
It´s a nuclear green jelly with flavour of this plant - It´s so crazy, I love it =D they even have a red one, but this unhealty colour is just better ! My boyfriend shakes his head in disbelief everytime I´m stuffing myself with it =D
...well I´m not only eating and drinking beer here !
I also drink a lot of lemonade =D I fell in love with those lemonades from local mineral water in glass bottles. I feel like Pipi Longstockings - she had that storage of glass bottle lemonades in a tree trunk ! I just can´t wait for summer, to sit on balcony in the sun and drink those ice cold lemonades with a straw =D
Now that´s enought about food and drinks !
Let´s get back to our flat. As I said it´s quite big, it has a bath (<3) but the most amazing thing about it is the balcony. I never had a balcony and I always wanted even a small one and now we have two ! One from each side of the flat *o*. And what´s even better - there are little gardens on both sides, so I don´t have even a small view on a street or cars or anything like that. I just can´t wait for summer to plant some herbs here and make them both cute with barbecue and things like that.
Here is the front one, it looks ugly in the winter, but all those bushes under it are going to bloom (soon I hope).
So we have a living room with dining room together, cute white kitchen with weird oven, sepparate bathroom and toilet (thank Gods that´s something I wished for all my life !!!), beautiful bedroom and... I have my own workroom ! I´m going to show you a lots of photos when it´s finished, but it´s still in a little chaos, because I have to work on new skirts and don´t have time to make it pretty. It´s going to be all in red/black colours with my favourite posters and some other crazy stuff like plastic raven and others...
But we´ve done a great progress since the December when we moved in. For example here is our living room the first day, three months ago...
... and here it is how it looks exactly at this moment =)
Ikea everywhere ♪
Appart from making our flat pretty, buying new things, swimming in a pool that is just around the corner and taking strolls to the nature which is behind the pool (so close!), my boyfriend works in Audi - that´s the main reason why we´re here and I´m trying to learn to speak German properly. I started visiting morning course last week and hope for a progress *_* I already did a little one, I´m starting to understand better and trying to overcome that shy anxiety cat inside me and even answer questions if someone ask me one =D
So this is it !
I think that all of this is going to sound funny for someone from Germany, because I found funny things foreign people say about czech things =) In a good way of course, it´s cute how they find some absolutely ordinary things amazing or weird and I never noticed them before.
I hope I didn´t bore you with something more personal for a change.
