We’re crossing border, and there are romantic feelings about it.
.

I remember our maiden trip to Europe. We had hard time adjusting food life that in the last days, we’re hanging on kebab.
.
Learning from those experience, @ginapriadini ordered this rendang-on-the-go from @tigodunsanak that prepared in small size package, so we could save it for many occassions.
.
It served us well, because rendang like this could served as a meal, seasoning (like sambal), or even snack (swipe ➡️).
.
Best case scenario was we might find nasi panas and have this. But worst case that we found only baguette suddenly became not so worst anymore.
.
So, rendang-on-the-go should be written as survival kit for Indonesian (or Malay) traveler that goes abroad (especially to western world).

Castle, in the middle of jungle and up to the hill. Living up the fantasy on fairy tale, or at least the romantic medieval kingdom.
.
That’s exactly why @neuschwanstein.castle is extremely famous and still attract numerous visitors to date.

Things that you’re craving the most when traveling (or stay) abroad is this kind of foodie.
.
Our ritual, upon returning from traveling abroad is going to nearest (sometime in airport) Padang Restaurant.
.
First is the taste, and the price’s second.
.
Perks of being Indonesian.

Bavaria, the capital of beer and definitely fußball. 1972 Olympic marked a shift in German football, where they sweep every stakes to become European champion (1972), world champion (1974), and another European final (1976). Domestically, emerging new force @fcbayern - Bavarian club - started the world domination by reigning in Bundesliga and then Champions League.
.
My third notes (link as always in the bio) about Munich. I never regret my decision to “get lost” and wander around Olympiapark. It’s huuuuge park and took my breath catching minutes to get into Olympiastadion. But it blew me off.

I had to open another reference about medieval age to summarize what I have been witness in Germany (and Swiss). ➡️ ••
.
First enigma was wondering how on earth the building that seems newer turned out to be the old town hall. ➡️ •••
.
And the more rustic building called the new town hall.
.
Well, it’s only the beginning of fascination that I tried to write (in 🇮🇩). The first blog post of I don’t know how many is up on the link in my bio.

Jesuit Church in Lucerne.
.
Small trivial fact that Jesuits was expelled from Switzerland as a result of (Sonderbund) war that favor the Protestant. It was 1847.
.
Lucerne was the stronghold for Jesuits, with this chapel as the center of learning and pastoral activities. It was built on 1677.
.
The building was featured in 1939 stamp, and currently served as Catholic church. The Jesuits prohibition turned out to be an issue in integrating Swiss to EU in terms of religious freedom. Slim majority (55%) finally decided to permit Jesuits back in 1973 referendum.
.
I intend to end the German-Swiss excursion gallery here. Europe, to me, is about to please my fascination over history and perfect example of balancing living between past and present. I think that’s all my travel feeds is all about (I think). So, thank you so much for the likes and comments.

Victoria-Jungfrau Grand Hotel (built in 1856, one of the oldest in Interlaken). @victoriajungfrau
.
Easy to locate the building in the small town of Interlaken. The town only have one square and road that stretch around 2 km and nothing more beside commercial arcade.
.
Interlaken is strategically located between two lakes, Brienz and Thun, and gateway to Alpine peaks like Eiger and Jungfrau.

The Iconic Tent
.
One of my fondest memory on this stadium was when @acmilan unexpectedly won 2-1 over host @fcbayern - Pippo Inzaghi and @clarenceseedorf decisive to the match. Feature they both repeat in 2007 when Bayern moved to Allianz Arena.
.
This stadium gives me thrill because it seems like natural amphitheater covered with tents. Ground level is the top seat, unlike common “erected” stadium where the field is the ground level.
.
I think this is the best stadium I have ever seen.
