for the love of nike

I got lunch and a parking ticket in Freiburg.

Freiburg is a sweet little German city. This medieval town at the edge of the Black Forest leads the way in Germany’s green movement. Take note of the strange gutters on the streets. They are not meant for sewage, but to cool the city down during the warm summer months, fight fires, and water the animals. Freiburg also has the longest running cable car in the country.

Check out the Hausbrauerei Feierling or the Münsterplatz.  (and if you order a salad, you may get one of the delicious food concoctions that in no way resembles a salad below)

    I’m so jealous! Freiburg is among my favorite spots for chilling out — and your photos captured its charm beautifully! But what’s this about a parking ticket? Did you accidentally wander into the Altstadt? I hope it wasn’t too much of a hassle to pay it, or too expensive.

    • Do you live in Germany? I’m so jealous!

      And we couldn’t read the parking signs and didn’t realize that we parked in a green car spot. It wasn’t very much–I think 25. We just paid it as soon as we could.

      I’ve had tickets from other countries come back to haunt me before!

        Don’t be too jealous; I don’t live in Germany — though I would *love* to, if just for a while.

        Glad to hear the ticket wasn’t too much. Sometimes in Europe the fines can be outrageous (or so I’ve been told by friends who have misbehaved, ha ha).

        Well … if you ever care to post more photos from Freiburg, I’ll be eager to see them! It’s one of the few paces I’ve visited for which I actually feel homesick.
