Ulm, Heidelberg

We are now in the beautiful city of Heidelberg and we have been very lucky( through my father’s friend) we were introduced to Malaysian student Rais Andersen(coincidentally he was my brother’s senior in school) and since his apartment has some empty rooms he let us crash at his place. Rais took us on a wonderful tour of the old city(longest pedestrian shopping street in Germany) and to Heidelberg Castle. We also took a hike up Heiligenberg hill (there is an open-air theatre built by the Nazi regime in 1934 to host propaganda events) even though it was quite a long hike up we really enjoyed it. Rais is also a good cook so we have been able to enjoy a few Malaysian dishes such as Chicken Curry, Beef Rendang and also Nasi Goreng. We were really spoilt during our stay here 🙂

    Congratulations, Aede! You both made it safely without any major incidents. Have a good and well-earned rest. What’s next on the horizon? Now you have a lot of cerita for your friends and family. Take care, Aede.
