Deutschland Day 3 - Free Practice 2 ♥

Hello my lovelies!

Hope you're doing well today ♥

Yesterday was my first day at work after a month of vacation, so it was definitely a bit weird to be there. But then, only few weeks until I will be a full-time student, so I might as well enjoy my time at work.

Today, however, it's time to see more of our trip to Germany. Let's start this one from the Mannheim railway station (Mannhein Hauptbahnhof).

Don't know about you guys, but I'm a sucker for candy stores of all kinds. So this one was a must to check out. I meant to buy something from there later on, but somehow I never did. Oh well, that goes to bucket list.

From Mannheim, we took the train to Hockenheim, where on that day (Friday), was time for free practice for all the series they drove there (F1, GP2, GP3 and Porsche Supercup).

Cool cars in front of the Motordrom Hotel. I would love to try out one like that some day.

Below, some pics from the F1 Village:

There was a chance to try out changing a tire to a Ferrari - which I might try out some day if I ever start working out my arms more. Because, if you don't know, those tires actually weigh more than you'd probably think.

Our little support thingy for the fellow Finns driving on F1, Valtteri Bottas (#77) and Kimi Räikkönen (#7). It took me some hours to design, draw and color that baby, so I hope you guys like it.

And then some pics from the track itself.

Kobayashi's car in flames. And he played a firefighter, which is pretty cool.

Danish fans, I assume. I really like their banner a lot, very cool.

That day, we left kinda early because I got ill from all the sun and all, and then we headed to Frankfurt for an early dinner.

On our way to food, we spotted Minnie and Mickey. I'm kinda disappointed we didn't get to be in a picture with them. :(

The restaurant we went to was recommended to us by a random citizen we stopped at the My Zeil shopping mall for advice to a good steak restaurant. The man told us to go to Buena Vista, and gave us simple directions to it. And he was right, the food was excellent!

We tried out chicken in cheese gratin and spinach, with rosemary potatoes. This was absolutely amazing and I could imagine trying to cook something similar at home some day.

After this, we headed back to Neu-Isenburg - but more on that on the next post.

Let me know if you liked this post in the comments below!

Now, I will go do all my chores etc. before work. We're finally having somewhat cooler day, so I can actually manage cleaning up the apartment without having a heat stroke. But I'll get back to you soon!

Have a fabulous day ♥
