Plenty of beer and food has helped put a little fat on my bones but, as they say, all good things must come to an end. I'll certainly be out in Bremen tomorrow night for the big game against Croatia. My sister's boyfriend Darko is of Croatian stock so he'll be running the gauntlet alone sat amongst my family and maybe 60 other English as we watch the game in Heggarty's. But then, alas, I must be off. I hope to be back on the road before another weekend kicks in. If I stay any longer I just may have to take up the offer of bar work to settle my ever increasing bar bill
If any of you ever fancy a city break I couldn't recommend the Hanseatic city of Bremen more highly. Located on the River Weser this peacful but exciting city has some great bars, restaurants and cafes with staff who really know how to look after you. Culture and history are in abundance with many museums, theatre, statues (see Roland) and some magnificent old buildings. The Brothers Grimm immortalised the city basing one of their fables here. Practically everyone speaks English (and not begrudgingly) and the beer is relatively cheap compared to many other european cities. So come to Bremen and let the musicians entertain while you colour your cheeks with some Weser-wasser, the internationally reknowned Beck's beer.
A big THANK YOU to everyone at Heggarty's Irish pub and the proprietors of my favourite steak house in Syke.
Looks like I'll be staying the weekend aferall as the Frei Markt is in town from tonight. It's the oldest travelling market in Europe. So as well as more culture it boasts great food and beer apparently...
Had a great weekend at Bremen's Friemarkt washing down sausages with plenty of steins of Munich's number 1 beer called Argostina from Munich at Bremen's Freimarkt.
I've updated my last few photos from Bremen. Somebody mentioned it was 10 weeks to Christmas yesterday so after sorting things out today and lazing around I will definitely be on the road again as from tomorrow.
