Exploring a New City

Good Morning! I hope everyone had a great weekend!

In true Monday fashion, I’ll be recapping my weekend for you today! This weekend was exciting because Matthias and I went to a nearby city for my first time. I’ll be linking up with Erin for Weekend Snapshots and Katie for Marvelous in my Monday. Now let’s get to it!

Friday started out as normal. We woke up, got ready and headed to get our weekly groceries. On our way, we stopped at the cutest little farmer’s market because I was on the hunt for spaghetti squash.12181812_10156831964040377_1270004608_n I wasn’t able to find any, but I was still in a really good mood. It was a beautiful day out, this place was absolutely adorable, and I was getting to spend the entire day with Matthias!12178290_10156831964075377_1428449459_nAfter picking up our groceries, we headed home to drop them off before hitting the road again. We were on our way to Lübeck! One thing I have been loving about being here, is seeing all of the old buildings and architecture. This city did not disappoint in these two things! 12177878_10156831964035377_1517312746_nWe walked towards the center of the city first. Stopping every so often so I could take pictures and marvel at the buildings.12179871_10156831964045377_264714038_n 12178059_10156831964085377_418756897_n 12177964_10156831964020377_288703749_nThere were so many churches that dated back a long time. We saw some that too over 100 years to be built! Matthias and I talked about we’re both curious how people would have built the buildings back in the 1400’s when they didn’t have the equipment that we have today. 12178010_10156831964060377_1581073334_n 12179028_10156831964090377_949733650_n12179304_10156831964050377_622459681_nI enjoyed looking up the narrow streets as we walked by them. Seeing the buildings curve with the street was really neat.12188520_10156831964025377_1642053893_nWe walked through The Holsten Gate near the end of our time in Lübeck. This gate marks the western boundary of the old center of Lübeck. 12179414_10156831964030377_713780071_n 12188432_10156831964070377_1104836342_nMatthias will say I liked Lübeck because I finally found a spaghetti squash at a little street market while we were there, but I would have loved it even if I hadn’t of found it. This city was really beautiful, spaghetti squash or not.

The rest of the weekend was pretty relaxing. Saturday we made homemade pizza and garlic fingers that we ate while watching Star Wars. We made our own dough that turned out really well! It’s my first time watching Star Wars and so far I’m liking it. Matthias is making sure I watch them all.saturdaySunday morning I woke up actually wanting to workout so I decided to do back and triceps. It felt nice having that drive back! The rest of the day was spent relaxing and watching hockey in the evening.

It was a great weekend! Have a great Monday everyone!

What do you like doing when you’re in a new city for the first time?

Do you have a favourite type of squash?

    1. The dough recipe was pretty simple:
      300 ml of lukewarm water and mix in a packet of yeast and 1 tbsp of sugar. (I think I only let it sit for 3-4 minutes.)
      500g flour (I used all-purpose) and a tsp of salt in a large mixing bowl. Make a well and add the water mixture to it. Once the dough comes together, we kneaded it for 10 minutes before leaving it to rise for an hour. (We split the dough in 4.)
      I just rolled out the dough, spread on garlic butter, and topped it with mozzarella cheese before baking it at 230C for just over 10 minutes!

      Let me know if you give it a try!
