Adventure in Salzburg, Austria

Image
I had an adventure with a friend in Austria last year. We visited a lot of cities there which include Salzburg, Linz, Attnang Puchheim, Wels, Vienna and a lot more. We travelled by train. I really enjoyed travelling by train. No stress, you just sit down inside while seeing the beautiful landscape outside. Anyway, I would like to share with you the photos I have in Austria and might write some more about Austria in my future posts. Before I forgot, Salzburg is a very interesting lively city which has a lot to offer to its visitors. Here are some of my photos there..have fun viewing..

Stop-over in Amberg, Germany

Image
Since Amberg can be passed by in going to Grafenwoehr, my friends whom I went with last Saturday, Jan. 19,'08 made a stop-over to see the town. At the same day, we just came from Ramstein around 4 hours drive till we reached our place in Hohenfels. Everyone was really tired but still we proceeded to Grafenwoehr just to see the new Shopping building in the US Base.

We made a bit walking and sightseeing in Amberg and never forgot to take some photos. Here they are....Please also find below a bit information and history about Amberg.

Passing-By at Landstuhl, Rhineland Pfalz, Germany

Image
As I stayed for some days in my friend in Ramstein, we always passed by Landstuhl but there is no time to see this town. Last Jan. 15,'08, we need to go there to find a Quelle Shop. Unfortunately there is no Quelle Shop to return the items that my friend ordered. So what we did instead was went walking around.

Landstuhl is a small town of Kaiserslautern. You can find below a little history about Landstuhl. I also have here some photos for you to see the place.

Neumarkt in der Oberpfalz, Germany

Image
This is where my village Hohenfels belong in Neumarkt i.d. Opf. Last Jan. 08, '08, we visited this small city in Bayern. Since me and my friend, can't think of any place to go, we decided quickly to drive there. I drove everyday to this city before when I was still attending the German language course.

We went a little bit shopping. The Winter Sale is already starting, that's why we bought some clothes which are off until 75%. That was not a bad idea. Before I buy clothes in it's regular price. Since I already know about Summer and Winter Sales in Germany, I usually buy during this time wherein you can buy clothes in its cheapest prices. But anyway, I really don't shop for clothes now since I already have enough. As usual, I also took some photos.

I just happened to stay some weeks in this small city of Kaiserslautern. Anyway, as I am writing this blog I am still in this place. It is really worth-staying beside that I really had a very excellent host. A special thanks to my very good friends, the Calaunans for the accommodation and everything.

I just wanted to impart to you a little bit history of this place and the things it can offer if you ever plan to visit here.

My Germany!!! My New Home...

Image
Let me tell you a little bit of my Germany. A country where I considered now my new home. I had been living in Germany for more that four years now since I am married to a German guy. I am proud of him being so humble, considerate, understanding, supporting and loving husband. He is always there for me. I have nothing to ask for.

Now back to Germany!! I can say that it is one of the richest, modern and cleanest country of Europe. I had already been to some cities and places in Germany. These include Cologne, Munich, Nuremberg, Regensburg, Wuerzburg, Kaiserslautern and a lot more to mention. Munich, the capital city of Bavaria is Germany's third largest city. Cologne is the fourth largest city, next to Munich. Cologne is the largest city both in the German Federal state of North Rhein Westphalia and within the Rhine Ruhr Metropolitan Area, one of the major European metropolitan areas with more than 10 million inhabitants.

Berlin is Germany's largest city, seconded by Hamb…
