Family Vacation 2016: [Tubingen, Germany]

Tuesday, May 24, 2016

Tubingen is a university town we had enjoyed visiting the last time we were in Germany; it was fun to go back and wander around again!! A river runs through the town, so the views on the bridge, along with the shop-lined square, and of course, cobblestone roads are picturesque. 
One of my favorite meals is from the brewery overlooking the river. How often can you make it back to a cute little European town and order one of your favorite dishes...? Well, once every 4 years, I guess - so order that favorite dish again, I did!! And it was JUST as good as I remembered (if not better!!).
We happened to visit on a holiday so most places weren't open, BUT the eis shop (ice cream/gelato) was and with five antsy kids on our hands, that was about all that mattered.
Tyson picked his own flavor, mango; each time we'd ask what kind he had, he'd pause, think, and exclaim, 'Flamingo..!!' Needless to say, I asked him what flavor he had quite a few times.. :) 
While making our way back to the car, we passed a window with some bags that caught my eye (but they were closed..); my SIL said she'd hold down the fort so the Mr. and I could go back another day for some real shopping. 
Great food, beautiful views, and successful shopping - Tubingen for the win!!
