The tile of this page means, "The Strenuous Day." Now don't get me wrong, I had a blast with Sebastian, Florian, Elena & Fabian, but the whole day in a car with the Dierschke boys can be a little tiring. I love them to death, but they're loud, disorganized and talk way too much. We headed out the door for a drive on the "Deutsche Weinstrasse" with our hangovers nursed, lunches packed, a full tank of gas, and a map-or so we thought. We quickly discovered that we had NO MAP! We then of course promptly got lost...after a lot of bickering, name calling, and Fabian making "very useful" suggestions, we finally got ourselves headed in the right direction. We first went to Roman ruins called, "Villa Rustica" and then the Giant Barrel in Bad Duerkheim...and then to France.
This photo is of the Deutsches Weintor (German Wine Gate) is the official beginning of the German Wine Road (Deutsche Weinstrasse). It's located in Schweigen near the French border and was officially opened in 1936.
If you look very closely, you can see Florian, Elena, Sebastian and Fabian waving to the camera.
The whole reason for going to France-other than just to go there-was to eat FLAMMKUCKEN! The boys just had to have it. Nevermind that there was a huge dinner waiting for us at home-Flammkuchen was absolutely necessary. So we set out to find some, but it turned out to be quite a challenge. We tried a place that they had been before, but it was closed, so we headed back to Wiessembourg, with the boys pointing out every hot girl they saw and yelling out the windows at pedestrians, we searched for an open restaurant. Unfortunately it was 4:30 and everything was closed until 6:00. So we wandered around the town-Elena and I pretending we don't know the boys...
We waited around long enough to find an OPEN RESTAURANT. We ordered 5 Flammkuchen and 5 Sodas and pigged out. The Flammkuchen was really great and by this time we were starvig so all the chatter finally stopped while we were stuffing our faces. Then comes the bill...I only had 2 Euro, Fabi had left his wallet in the car...I don't know who eventually ended up paying, but we didn't have to wash dishes to get out of there. By the time we headed home I was exhausted and slept the whole way. Thanks Dierschke boys!
