Easter Trio 2023: Rothenburg ob der Tauber

After Nuremberg we headed on to our first official stop - Rothenburg ob der Tauber. This was such a cute old town! It was small and so much fun to walk around

I had read that they had this treat there - Rothenburger Schneeballen - and one of the bakeries had vegan versions so off we headed for an afternoon snack. 

So excited to try this cinnamon sugar treat...only to be immediately super disappointed. This was...not good. It was like if you took bits of not very good pie dough and baked them till crispy and dried out then put a hint of cinnamon sugar on it. My friend said her non-vegan one wasn't good either so I honestly do not know why people get these...there were chocolate covered ones and maybe those are better, but they were sold out of the vegan versions when we were there. Or maybe the bakery where we went just wasn't very good...who knows, but it didn't make me want to try another one. 

Lots of Easter decor

There was an old city wall you could walk along! My friend is not a fan of heights so we just had a quick spy

Cactus fajitas from a Mexican place in town. Honestly I was not expecting these to be very good as most Mexican in Germany that we have tried has been...not the best, but we were pleasantly surprised (and the food my friend had was some of her favorite she has ever eaten!) 

The next day we headed off to spy on the Berggarten (garden of the former castle)

With some nice views!

I just looked this up and saw that this is supposed to be broccoli. A broccoli fountain, which I did not realize when we were there. 

We could keep our car parked until 1, so around noon we went to spy on somewhere to eat lunch and happened upon this hotel restaurant that had fancy vegan foods! Soup and fancy salad for lunch and it was so tasty! Then it was off to our next stop: Bamberg

Stupid Libraries.

So I only have six minutes left and just wasted a few seconds letting you know, but I need some assistance in getting things off our iPod onto the net. In the last town we were in, I came so close to getting it up only to be thwarted by the only damn cd -burner in the shop being broken. This is the problem: my iPod is mac formatted - the folks at Apple thought it would be hilarious to not include some sort of compatibility between windows and mac versions of iTunes to read the voice memos you record from any computer. If your iPod formatted on a mac (I believe it's HSF +), windows iTunes will tell you to reformat the buggar . And get this, the iPod records voice memos in old school PC style wav files. What the hell. Anyway, I can't test or install things on this library computer, but if someone checking the blog who is tech savvy could find a program to retrieve data from a mac formatted iPod from a windows machine - a program that doesn't use a god damn install

The end

So it started raining on us for days and we cut out to come back to Seattle for a few days and wait for it to clear up.....and then Raymond decided he really did not want to go back out. So I at first was pretty upset cause I really wanted to get to Canada, or at least as far as we could while the weather was still nice this weekend. And I was feeling really like we were giving up for no reason. Like if one of us were injured or if I was hating it or something then I would have been better about it. But instead it was like the forecast called for gorgeous weather this weekend and we were just going to sit at home. I figured we could have at least gotten to the next stop and then only had one more chunk to do next year, but Raymond really didn't want to go back out so we decided not to. But hopefully by this time next year we will get the last 2 sections done, and maybe go back and do the section from white pass to snoqualmie as we went RIGHT by Mt Rainier and it is supposed to be g

Paris here we come!

So not much to update since the last time. I'm trying to think what we even did the past two weeks. Well last weekend was roller derby nationals in Atlanta, GA and is the first time we haven't gone to nationals in...4 years! We have gone the past 4 years so it was a little sad not to be there. However they do stream it live for a small fee so we did that so last weekend lots of roller derby was watched! Luckily it was on the east coast so it was only 6 hours difference so we didn't stay up too too late (Sat I think we got to bed at like 3am) and we got to watch Gotham win again! It was fun watching from the couch, but I much prefer to be there. I mean when I would be yelling at the TV and clapping and cheering when something good happened and it is just not the same when it is just me doing that. The claps echo in the room...Next year is going to be in Milwaukee which I don't really know anything about, but apparently they have a lot of vegan food. We shall see if we ma
