Welcome to Les Flâneries --- a blog about my wanderings around Paris and beyond, complimented by my photos and words.
One thing I love about Paris is its abundance of exhibitions and art galleries. It is truly a world capital of arts.
Some people say Heidelberg is Germany's most inspiring city. Walking along its streets lined with charming houses, it is easy to justify this claim. It is, after all, one of the most important tourist destinations in Germany.
In general, one goes to Frankfurt for business, not for pleasure. And as someone I know who currently lives there so memorably said: "There is nothing to see in Frankfurt. Period!"
After spending two weeks learning German and living like a local, Munich has come to occupy a very special place in my heart. Its beautiful streets lined with impressive buildings and meticulously tended gardens, especially the vast Englischer Garten, the abundance of beer gardens and a pervading cheerful southern German atmosphere are some of the aspects that I really appreciate about this city, also known as “Toytown” for its easygoing attitude, extremely high quality of life and low levels of crime.
After Rothenburg ob der Tauber, I continued on to another highlight along southern Germany’s Romantic Road : Bamberg.
This weekend, I am basing myself in Nuremberg to check out a couple of towns along the famed Romantic Road. And the first of these towns is Rothenburg ob der Tauber.
This summer I decided to spend a couple of weeks in Germany to improve my German. I have been learning German since last September.
