Recap and coffee

IMG_0550.JPGThe year 2016 has nearly come to an end. Time to get up and get some things done while the old year still lasts. One thing I really want to get into again is blogging (and cleaning my flat, my closet, get my washing machine installed, finally paint my bedroom…) I work with so many inspiring bloggers every day but I stopped to publish (except for instagram) myself. Well, a new year is always also a time for a change. Or better: a reason to start new, positive habits.

Here comes my mid-December recap with some nice coffee-spots to spend the time between the years in my hometown Ingolstadt!

Yes, I spend most of the time at my desk at work, but sometimes my job requires to go outside. I had an amazing photo shooting in the cold with the new Audi Q2, finally found the most beautiful café in Ingolstadt (in my opinion it’s the Café am Schloß!), had some Glühwein at the little Christmas market of the Alte Anatomie (the museum of the history of medicine, a beautiful building that looks like a small castle, just in Ingolstadts city-center), the herbs at the museums garden were covered by the first frost of the year. I finally got to read the new issue of the Kinfolk magazine at a nice coffee-spot as well: one of the oldest cafés in Ingolstadt, the Café Wiedamann. mid-decemberrecap

Café am Schloß

Ballhausgasse 2, 85049 Ingolstadt

Oh this is one of my most favorite places. Nice industrial-interior. Modern but classic, the coffee is excellent and the breakfast contains only regional products. Also the coffee is roasted by their own little roastery – something you’ll taste. They’re also very flexible when it comes to vegetarian alternatives and soy-milk. Something you won’t get everywhere in Ingolstadt!

Café Anna

Theresienstraße 19, 85049 Ingolstadt

The hot-spot for families and friends alike every saturday. From soja-latte to vegan ice-cream. The Anna has ist all. As well as a little bookshop and a beautiful interior. But be quick. On vertain times you’ll be waiting quite long  in line to get your coffee…

Café Wiedamann

Donaustraße 1, 85049 Ingolstadt

Craving a piece of really self made cake? This little place is the spot for it. Just near “Vronis Ratschhaus” and the Pop-Up Coffee “Coffee Roasters V” you’ll find this little gem. Mr Wiedamann is still baking on his own. And there’s regular coffee, a piece of cake and a nice atmosphere plus friendly service for under 4€!

Café Velo

Kreuzstrasse 2; 85049 Ingolstadt

Do you remember the little bike-shop that was in front of the Münster for as long as I can remember? Evi Salt took it over and made it in one of the most cozy and beautiful spots in the whole inner city. And the best thing? Except for the down-to-earth owner Evi? The coffee is served in cups of reasonable size and there’s always the smell of freshly baked waffles hanging in the air…

Special: Try the gingerbread-waffles that are only served around Christmas! Proof of calories worth the intake see below. And they taste even better when shared with some friends 🙂

Wait for the list to continue, I’m not done testing every coffee of this town yet 🙂

Have a good last week before the Christmas holidays!

Thailand: A break beside the Chao Phraya River

I already shared some impressions of Thailand during my time there. Some pictures from some extraordinary locations whenever I had sufficient w-land connection and muse to share something. I already showed you some videos. For example oft my first evening in Bangkok. A video about the train ride to Koh Phangan and impressions from the Khao San Road. I couldn’t hold back my enthusiasm for my favorite breakfast place in Chiang Mai as well – but there is so much more. Todays photos are made in a very little bar near the Dragon Road. A trail through the Chinese Quarter of Bangkok along the Chao Phraya River. We were so exhausted after a day of exploring when we finally stumbled over this magical place. It’s owner appreciates cats (and I’m pretty sure she is actually Japanese! At least the extra toilet-slippers made me wonder;)) It’s just the perfect place to watch the sun go down over this magical city.

Guess why I chose this café? Can’t be because of the clouds on their advertising sign!

The Dragon Road is an amazing path for discovering the riverside of the Chao Phraya. Dare to leave it though! There a small trails leading you directly to the river and through the places where the people besides the river actually live in their houses build on logs right into the water.

The small streets of the Road of the Dragon. Simon, who traveled with me was always wondering about the electricity cables running openly through the streets.
