    Under the bridge in #Bamberg.

    Making our way through the Bavarian Alps in @urbanhippieberlin's 1984 VW LT beast "Bruno". By coasting down this mountain for 8 minutes, we saved €70 in diesel.

    Mornings in #Bavaria

  • aricsqueen

    I love sausages and I love adventure so I offer these tasty treats - called Landjäger, a specialty snack of the Alps - to the travel gods who've been smiling on us this trip. I'm also later going to offer up apologies and a different kind of sacrifice to the travel gods 'cause I'm totally about to hit this shit. - #thehillsarealivewiththesoundofsnacking

    I sat there in silence and thought about the most beautiful interiors I'd ever seen and this one easily made the top 5 - possibly 3. The Baroque-damn-near-Rococo magnificence of the Roggenburg Abbey - 265 years old and this shot doesn't do it justice. A few minutes later, 10 Canons Regular (kindof like monks) would come out and sing to the crowd of 6. Unreal. More photos to come [FB]. - #Bavaria #architecture #design #Baroque #rococo

    The Premonstratensian canory (kindof like monks, but also not like monks) of Roggenburg, #Bavaria. Built in 1752. Impressive on the outside, positively mind-blowing once you walk in. [See next photo.] - #Germany #architecture #design #blueskies

    A little #German pick-me-up.

    Where the streets have no... one on them. A secret for seeing #Bavaria without the crowds? Sundays.

  • aricsqueen

    #Bavaria has a good handle on things.

    Driving up to the world's most famous castle with @urbanhippieberlin. Snow on top of the Alps above. High fünf.

    For Heather, ages ago.

    The morning papers hang at Café Einstein - one of my favorite spots to spend a cold #Berlin day in. No wifi and only whispers - the sounds of sugar being stirred into espressos being the loudest noise in the joint. Shame about all the raisins in the strudel, though.

    Nail brushes, shaving brushes, dish-washing brushes, shoe brushes, back brushes, brushes for tall corners and - because #Berlin - anal (yes) scrubbers (with a patented design - I kid you not) are all for sale at the city's most revered brushmaker, Volker Schröder.

    Easy to miss and what a shame it'd be if you did, the "Mengenlehreuhr" - German for "Set Theory Clock" - despite being more than 42 years old - is ridiculously complicated to explain, so I'll post an article below. Basically, the top is for seconds, the two below are for hours, and the last two are for minutes. But a color change means you double the amount and then there's math and... ugh. Anyway. See article. BUT - the most-delicious part is its possible involvement with Kryptos - the conspiracy-laden sculpture outside CIA headquarters, as when a few lines of it were decoded, it read "BERLIN CLOCK". 🇩🇪🕰️😱

    The hipster haven of Admiralbrücke, where burgeoning baristas lounge on their days off, dreaming of someday moving to Williamsburg and only have 5 roommates. Le sigh. #Berlin

    A mix of Neoclassical and Medieval design, the gorgeous St. Michael's on the border of Mitte and Kreuzberg, #Berlin

    It's a story that could only happen in the middle of #Berlin and it's an art installation that could only happen in the middle of #Berlin. Long (ahem) story short, in 2002, the satirical - and very left - magazine "taz" ran a story that a rival magazine's editor had attempted to get a penis-lengthening procedure. This - of course - was not true, and said editor sued the magazine that ran the article. However, the Berlin court threw the case out, citing that said editor had himself allowed attacks in his own magazine to be published and now "could not be protected against infringement of his own rights". So you'd think the original magazine (taz) being sued would breathe a sigh of relief for not having to pay millions in punitive damages and leave it at that, right? Nope. A few years later, they commissioned this four-story piece of a man looking a whole lot like the editor who tried to sue them with a 6 meter long, well... façade.

    The Tempo Hanseat boxvan. 1950-ish. 13.5 horsepower. Sparse by design - the motto "What is not there can also not break." - #Berlin
