and now part 2 of my culture weekend.

the city of bach, goethe and schiller (and many others as well) - weimar, thuringia, germany.
i would call it one of the world's intellectual capitals. wherever you live, you should come and visit this city.
It has been a site of pilgrimage for the German vnf intelligentsia since Goethe first moved to Weimar in the late 18th century. The tombs of Goethe and Schiller as well as their archives, may be found in the city. It is around the city of Weimar that Goethe's famous 1809 Elective Affinities is based.
The period in
German history from 1919-1933 is commonly referred to as the Weimar Republic, as the Republic's constitution was drafted here because the capital, Berlin, with its street rioting after the 1918 German Revolution, was considered too dangerous for the National Assembly to convene there. Weimar was, beside Dessau, the center of the Bauhaus movement.
The city houses
art galleries, museums and the German national theatre. The Bauhaus University and the Liszt School of Music Weimar attracted many students, specializing in media and design, architecture, civil engineering and music, to Weimar.

6 children and pokemon

you are registered on ebay and need to sell something? click here to see an example how you can get many readers on your blog. she did it.

the microwave murder

he is sentenced to 8 years and 6 months in jail. he killed her because he was depressed and wanted to have the microwave after their split-up.


they were the last ones (2000) who beat england in the old wembley stadium (1:0) and the first ones (2007) who beat them in the new one (1:2).


oberammergau in the south of germany and bavariaour hotel "to the old post".
houses here are traditionally painted which is called "lüftlmalerei".
in the car: big s., who was so photo-fixed that he nearly crashed the car a few seconds after the picture was taken.
most people (especially children) know the town from this tongue twister:

'Heut kommt der Hans nach Haus', / Freut sich die Lies' / Ob er aber über Oberammergau, / Oder aber über Unterammergau, / Oder aber überhaupt net kommt, / ist nicht g'wiß!

Translation: 'Hans is coming home today / Lies rejoices / But whether he's coming by way of Upper Ammergau / or by way of Lower Ammergau / or not coming at all / is unknown!'


before we went to the wedding we visited
schloss neuschwanstein (engl. "new swan stone")
- the german disney castle -
- 19th century -

wedding weekend

we've been to munich at the weekend to attend my friend r.'s wedding. although both of them being protestants, it took place in a catholic church as bavaria is a catholic state - the state in germany where the current pope comes from.
here are some photos from the celebration. enjoy!

big s.'s and my shoe in the church

broom and bride

both of them study at the university of munich

eating non-stop in the ebersberger alm.

view from there

no firework but ballons with sparklers on it

illegally imported fire-paper ballons from thailand

we stayed in this hotel - the lakes nearby were just beautiful. but on the other hand, water + summer = gnats -> they had lots of fun with my body!

and someone invited us to come to the oktoberfest this year which means that we might be in munich in october again.
