Day 3, Wurzburg, Germany
Today was another easy day as we try to battle the effects of jetlag (Dot is still waking at 3am!). We spent the morning at the beautiful park on the opposite side of the Main (canal). It’s possibly the most beautiful little park we have ever seen with its leafy green surrounds.
After a sleep in the middle of the day we attempted to walk to the Fortress Marienberg, but only made it to the BUND Natural Conservation parkland, which is a lush green reserve with some of the town's original architecture still remaining. Dot loved it, especially when we found a park with a mix of water features, swings, slides and climbing. We’ll drive to the fortress another day and explore the surrounding Japanese gardens.
Day 2, Wurzburg, Germany
The day started with a wander through some of the city's narrow streets and a quick coffee at Fred (now our favourite cafe in Wurzburg). We met Francie for lunch at the botanical gardens, where her university campus is located. The day finished at a market, located only a few blocks from our apartment. It mostly consisted of food, which was ideal as it catered for our early dinner.
