Guten Morgen Xangaland!
We had a lovely time last night! When we arrived in Philippsheim we found out that the pizza parlor that Dirk and Nichole were going to take us to was closed for the evening due to an emergency appointment the owner had to go to. They took us to a wonderful little Yugoslavian restaurant in Bitburg instead and I have to say it was delicious! We had a wonderful time sitting and talking and just enjoying each others company… We then walked down the block and went into a little ice cream parlor, they wanted us to try something. Spaghetti ice cream!
Oh wow! You guys have to try this stuff if you ever get the chance… It’s vanilla ice cream squeezed out to look like spaghetti noodles (let me just stop and say that ice cream here tastes completely different because there are no preservatives or additives… it tastes just like home made stuff from a picnic.) On top of the ‘noodles’ is a thick layer of strawberry sauce toped off with crumbles of white chocolate which of course look like parmesan… YUMMY!
(Us playing before we left the house.)
Unfortunately I forgot to bring the camera in with us so I don’t have any pictures of dinner and dessert… but as we walked to the car we saw something we just couldn’t pass up… so we ran back to the car and got the camera. Just look at this!
Until Ryan’s great grandfather went over to the states our last name didn’t have an e on the end so it was Laub… looks like we found family! LOL I have to tell you it is surreal to be walking through a town halfway across the world and see your name!
We then took the opportunity to walk through the French Cocearn since we got back early… We got some pictures for you.
This is the monument outside of the post office.
Me outside of the post office.
The front door of the post office… Aren’t the rooflines just charming?
Ryan hugging a tree in front of another building…
This is Ryan’s office building… His office is the second set of windows down first and second windows from the right.
Another random building… Many of these are empty since most of the operations have been moved over to Spangdahlem… They say these are used to do haunted houses in the fall…
Getting ready to go out for the evening.
We did have such a good time… This place is just so fascinating… I can’t wait to go on our next adventure… whenever that may be.
