DeutschTrip : Food (1)

Dear Readers,

I have so many thing to write about during my one week stay in Freiburg, but I think I need more research on some issues, so to keep my blog update I will share unique foods I have tried here ๐Ÿ™‚


Brezel ย is type of bakedย ย food made from doughย in soft and hard varieties and savory or sweet flavors in a unique knot-like shape. It used to drink with beer, but since I don’t drink alchohol so I use water in return. It cost around 1 Euro each and I saw many german people eat it as daily snack. It is crispy outside but soft inside. The one in picture was a little bit salty.


This is one example of mineral water in Deutschland. It cost me around 1-2 Euro. Not like regular mineral water in Indonesia, in German people put soda in their mineral water. Some friend say because German people like something sparkling taste in their water. However, if I want to drink the regular water I just need to refill this bottle with tap water! ๐Ÿ˜€ easy to find everywhere even in the toilette, it was a little bit ackward for me ย in the beginning though, but it is ok here the water is very safe and clean. Now I am a tap water drinker! ๐Ÿ˜€

Seafood and Salad

It is my mistake for not remembering the name of this meals. It was typed in Deutsch and very long, but basically we can call it seafood and salad ๐Ÿ˜› ย It was one of the most delicious food I ever ate so far, because it is cost me for free! ๐Ÿ˜€ normally this is around 7-8 Euro. The bread was similar with zuppa soup taste with Shrimp and Tuna inside. They put a lots of vegetable and slice of mango.

Vegan Food

It was a dinner when I accompanied Tia, one of the student who came with me and research about Vegan (People who choose to eat no protein at all). We got an info that every wednesday night in two weeks, there will be a massive dinner done by the Vegan community in Vauban area. This community will cook for everyone who wish to eat Vegan food and those who eat pay the food as much as they can. The people who cooks the food here works for free. When I got there the menu was fettucini with cucumber. Nice experience! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Ice Cream !!

Yup! this is one of my self-healing food, yay! ๐Ÿ˜‰ I am lucky to be here at summer time, where every German people love to eat ice-cream, young, old, children, man, woman. There are so many varieties of nice ice cream I can find here, the one in the picture is ice cream with cone cost only 80 cents per scoop. There are numbers of flavor worth to try, vanilla, chocolate, chocho-chip, strawberry and many moores!! Believe me, here I almost eat ice cream everyday! haha ๐Ÿ˜€

Yup,I think that’s all I have to say about food right now, will update another food I have tried again ๐Ÿ™‚

ps: what about my diet? hahaha ๐Ÿ˜€

DeutschTrip : Flushed or not?


I was in Amsterdam just landed from Kuala Lumpur and want to go to Toilet. As usual, I did my ‘personal’ business on the water closet. After I finished I tried to flush the closet but I can’t! Gosh! I was panic, thinkingย  how embarassed can I be when I get out and people found that I did not flushed the closet ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

I tried to prolong my “visit” in that closet couple minutes by standing and daydreaming ๐Ÿ˜€ but then out of nowhere the water flushed the closet by itself. Hurayy! I was smiling so big and laugh on my self when I tried to see closer in the wall. It says;

“Toilet flushes automatically”

Aha! Then, case solved and what a lesson of the day ๐Ÿ˜€

DeutschTrip : Departure

Dear Readers,

This is my first day writing about my trip to Deutschland or so called Germany. I am now in Schipol Airport Amsterdam waiting for my KLM flight to Frankfurt. There are three things I want to share 1. Why I am here? 2. How was my trip so far 3. My plan in Deustchland.

Why I am here?

I can tell you it was Divine Intervention that I can go to Germany, alhamdulillah. About seven months ago, without particular reason, I decided to join Deutsch course in my university, Universitas Gadjah Mada to fill my spare time with productive activity. When my friends ask me, Why Deutsch? I just said ” Because I will go there someday” and here I am. Will be in Germany in couple hours insyaallah. After 2 month taking the course, my senior lecturer in the International Department offer me one month observation work in Germany. It was a research program done by Department of Anthropology which send 8 students and 2 lecturer to Freiburg for field research. Me and my senior lecturer will join this Anthoropology team to observe and find any possibilities that our department can initiate similar program with Albert-Ludwig Universtat, Freiburg.

How was my trip so far

The trip was extremely exciting, yay! ๐Ÿ˜€ I have to start from Yogya-Jakarta-KualaLumpur-Amsterdam-Frankfurt-Freiburg. The flight start at 10 am yesterday from Yogya, then we have to wait for 6 hours in Jakarta then fly to Kuala Lumpur. Unfortunately from Kuala Lumpur I lost my Blackberry internet services so I only can text by phone and it’s so expensive ๐Ÿ˜ฆ After that we transit in Kuala Lumpur for a while and continue our 12 hours flight to Amsterdam. Flying with KLM was so good hehe ๐Ÿ˜€ I watch three movies, learn Deutsch and have three meals!! ๐Ÿ˜› arrived in Amsterdam we decided to travel around since we have 8 hours transit. Here I am, pretty tired after visiting RisjkMuseum. ๐Ÿ˜€

My Plan

I have 4 weeks stay in Germany, 1 report to make for Freiburg University and plenty wishes to make hehe.. ๐Ÿ˜€ For my report I plan to evaluate the research program and find any recommendation for my department. For my personal research there are several topics I would like to view more in Freiburg; Green Politics pratices, City and Urban Development Strategies, Islamic Community in Freiburg, Woman and Children Policy and IT and Social Media development.

This is actually a reminder for me to be grateful of my life by keep doing the bestย  and take every opportunities a head. Bismillah.. ๐Ÿ™‚
