Day 163 : Back to the Wild West

A short stop as we headed back into Western Europe, it was nice to be back into the fatherland, and Nurnberg provided an entertaining few hours touring the town, the castle gardens as well as providing some amazing espressos. The old town is very traditional and beautiful, but the highlight was the city walls, which at one point were going to be purposely demolished but are now some of the best preserved in Europe. All sounds rather dull until you see that in between those walls, where the former moat lies, the city has allowed for the building of houses. That's right, you can live in a fucking moat. Awesome.
