2011/301: Cannstatter Volksfest
Oh, how I miss it!
Some of you may know that I grew up in Stuttgart, Germany. Bad Cannstatt, to be exact, which is a suburb of Stuttgart.
The Volksfest is a big carnival (October Fest), starting in late September and ending in mid October, lasting for three weeks.
It was something we looked forward to, and we met our friends there after school several times in those three weeks. We had son much fun! Admission is free, and you only pay for the rides you want to go on.
This year, my best friend sent me a little surprise in the mail… a gingerbread heart from the Cannstatter Volksfest. I thought about saving it, but then decided to eat it 🙂
(Here’s a little more about the Volksfest history if anyone is interested)
I think those yellow globs with the white globs at the top of the heart are supposed to be beer glasses.
Home, Sweet Home. At least where I grew up 🙂
From what I understand, these bags are all the rage in Europe right now, you can find them in every big city. I received this bag as a birthday present (way back in February! Yeah, I’m quick to post a picture, aren’t I?) from my best friend, and I love it!! A little piece of home, wherever I go.
