The lack of kebabs on this night has been compensated by extraordinary feats of kebab eating on others. Some have heard and told tales and remarkable individuals, who shall remain nameless, eating up to 5 kebabs in a day. And although most members of Vinny Grella's Mum's Vanny Van Van Van cannot hope to match this marvellous eating display, kebabs remains a staple for us all, due mainly to the fact that they;re the cheapest food going around and are available on every single fucking corner
1. Don't use spaghetti as noodles.
2. Do not lather sweet and sour sauce on everything, especially if sweet and sour sauce is not mentioned in the dish title.
3. Don't use fucking spaghetti as noodles.
Now, I'm not normally like this, but the hideousness of these noodles, and my associated outrage compelled me to enlighten the workers of this random chinese place as to rule no 1 - see above.
My impression of Bamburg has not been entirely destroyed by this noodle incident
Relaxation in Bamburg has not been a touch on the relaxation and indulgence enjoyed immediately before in Wiesbaden. Indeed, this is how Wiesbaden, at least on the World Cup road trip of the devil of the death, will be remembered. The finest of the Rheingau's Jagerschnitzel and Rose was enjoyed as we overlooked the sweeping vineyards of Germany's Riesling Trail. Reuly the finest meal we have enjoyed in Germany, complete with must needed salad. Many thanks again to Beate, our saviour at a time of dire need. Our time in Wiesbaden was entirely relaxing, partly due to our parking spot on the banks of the Rhine; significantly due to our day at the Thermal Baths. Thermal Baths? Brilliant. Even better when you haven't had access to a shower in 3 days. An account of our time at the Thermal Baths is similar to my account of the baths in Korea - longest shower in the world, thermal pool bathing for eternity, massages in the high pressure jets for forever, and repeat. Awesome. Brilliant. We may have said "Living the Dream" a couple of times.
Well, we've come to the end of the World Cup Road Trip of the Devil of the Death
And so to the Top 5. The road trip being over, I have been thinking about all the crazy things that Germany has thrown up - the simple things that are just killing us because. Seemingly just for fun like it's an enormous practical joke because these things shouldn't be that hard. The Top 5 things on the road trip that just killed us:
5. Deposit on bottles. Killing us.
4. Sausages and bread with no salad. Killing us.
3. Petrol - 1.15 euro/litre ($2/litre). Killing us.
2. Fizzy water everywhere. Normal water nowhere. Killing us.
1. Each other. Killing us.
In Munich for the semi-finals. No english. Brilliant...
