For the weekend I went back home and made a plan for Saturday with my boyfriend. We met in Dusseldorf, the capital of North-Rhine-Westphalia and had a really great day. It was time that we saw each other again!
The day went by so fast, it’s hard to believe that it was just yesterday. We first wanted to go to the famous Königsallee, a street with loads of luxury brand stores, which we later did too, there were so many people playing and catching Pokemon, oh man! But before that we discovered an Asia store and picked some sushi and some sweet rice cakes, which were too sweet for me.
We then took a walk through the Hofgarten, it’s said that it’s the german Central Park because it’s really big too, but I can’t say that, I haven’t been in NYC yet! Anyways, it was really nice and we picked a little place on the grass and had a little picknick. We were also joined by many wild ducks who walk around all the place but luckily, they weren’t interested in our food, so we had our peace.
Our last plan for the day was to go to the Rhine river. We walked through the old city and it could be as well called the food city, cause really, there was one restaurant or cafe after the other and it went on like that for streets and streets, it was incredible! We found an ice cream shop and oh my god! Not only were the scoops GIANT but they were SOOO delicious!!! I’m still not over it. I had raspberry sorbet and strawberry basil sorbet and wow! It was so delicious! I swear it changed my life! My boyfriend had sour cherry sorbet and a classic vanilla and it was also so great! I am so sad to tell you that we don’t remember the name of the shop but it was something with Eis Manufaktur. There’s a Herrtotti Eis Manufaktur, but we are sure that that wasn’t the one, and we are so bummed that we can’t remember it!
We then sat by the river, finished our ice cream and enjoyed our time together. And then, at the train station, our paths separated again. And that was my day trip to Dusseldorf!
Have you ever eaten ice cream that changed your life? I know for sure that that’s one of the best I’ve ever had!
I hope you’re having a great day!
