One of those Days

ose Days ose DaysIt was one of those days. The plan was to visit Stettenfels Castle in Heilbronn, and then grab a bite at the adjacent restaurant – simples. Who could have known that everything that can go wrong would go wrong? The castle was closed for visitors and there was no restaurant in sight.

ose Days ose Days ose Days A quick glance at Google Maps revealed that the restaurant we were looking for wasn’t in fact on the castle grounds, but in the town the castle was overlooking. So we drove all the way down just to find the restaurant closed for a private function. “Ok”, we thought, “Let’s just drive around town and grab a bite at the first open restaurant we pass by”.

ose Days ose Days ose Days Easier said then done. Literally every single restaurant was closed. Apparently that’s a small town thing on Saturdays…nobody cares for a sociable lunch or breakfast. Anyways, we’d surely have better luck in Heilbronn, a relatively big city? Nope, every food place located around the city centre was closed as well. By that time our tummies were rumbling like full-grown lions. We just wanted food…ANY food.

Only one problem remained; there were no empty parking spaces in the whole city centre. Even multi-storey car parks were full to the brim…would this streak of bad luck never end? Well…after driving around for what felt like a lifetime, it did. We finally found a parking space a bit further out, but still close enough to the centre, had some amazing Italian food, went for a refreshing walk and then made our way back to the car.

ose Days ose Days ose Days I dare you to have a wild guess what happened then! Half of the city centre got closed off for traffic due to a protest. I mean really? Haha…luckily we found a way around the protest and were able to leave the city, but all in all this was definitely a day I won’t forget so easily.

    Das ist ja wirklich doof, dass das Schloss geschlossen hatte. Ich kenne eine ähnliche Situation: In Paris hatte ich unglaublichen Hunger, aber nirgends war ein Bistro und das Museum hatte auch zu und so bin ich zum erst Besten. Resultat: 15€ für zwei Döner… Dein Look ist toll! Ich liebe den Minimalismus. Eventuell bin ich immer viel zu verspielt? Heilbronn ist übrigens ganz süß! Zu erst werden da die “Landliebe”-Produkte hergestellt und zum anderen hängt an der Brücke auch ein Schloss von mir ^_^

    I know how it is when everything seems to go wrong…I think we all have days like those…but often those are the days that we reflect quite often on and laugh about heartily:)
    I remember one road trip …we managed to find only one restaurant open and besides the bill being quite extravagant, the portions were microscopic and just awful…and we were so hungry we would have given an arm and an leg for a good meal….alas, we just had to endure the hunger that day:) but we had great fun and everything else was perfect.

    love the sneakers…great look…and the photos are magnificent! what a beautiful scenery…like from some fairy-tale!

      Yeah…we had a great day too! Depite all odds…haha 😀
