One of the coolest things we did on our trip was get milk. Yes, you read that right. We got milk. But it wasn’t just regular milk. It was fresh, raw milk. And it was ridiculously delicious.
Guhl’s Frischmilch Automat is about 30 minutes away from Kaiserslautern in the town of Gerhardsbrunn. You can either bring your own bottles or buy some for a couple euros each. The milk was sweet and so rich, but not cloying.
After dropping the milk off at the apartment, we headed to Strasbourg. You definitely get Belle’s village vibes in this town. When we arrived we were starving so we hunted down a place that served tarte flambée (flammekueche), a specialty of the Alsace region. It’s kind of like a flat bread pizza, traditionally topped with bacon and onions.
With our bellies full of carb goodness, we wandered around and came across a carousel. Of course, we had to ride it. The operator let me go on for free since Amara looked like she was younger than she actually is.
The cathedral is massive. Beautiful, but massive. The stained glass inside was remarkable. Those Europeans sure know how to build churches.
And if you were wondering, no, I don’t know how to take a normal picture.
