Every Tuesday, we share photographs from our recent or long-ago travels, or just everyday stuff that appealed to our mindful eye and sharp sensibilities as captured through fleeting images.
Historic Lunch at Bergghasthof Restaurant
One of the things my family and I did while we were in Germany last year is to take quite a number of tours. A few weeks back, I featured our Romantic Road Trip in Medieval Rothenburg. Another tour that we have taken was the Berchtesgaden and Eagle’s Nest Day Tour allowing us a taste of history. For lunch, we went to the Bergghasthof Restaurant with a gorgeous view of the Alps, and where, supposedly Hitler and his men used to dine.
“The History of every major Galactic Civilization tends to pass through three distinct and recognizable phases, those of Survival, Inquiry and Sophistication, otherwise known as the How, Why, and Where phases. For instance, the first phase is characterized by the question ‘How can we eat?’ the second by the question ‘Why do we eat?’ and the third by the question ‘Where shall we have lunch?”
― Douglas Adams,
I’m so blah and so stupid… she’d never like me… I wonder what would happen if I went over and tried to talk to her! Everyone would probably laugh… she’d probably be insulted someone as blah as I am tried to talk to her. I hate lunch hour… all it does is make me lonely… during class it doesn’t matter… I can’t even eat… Nothing tastes good… Rats! Nobody is ever going to like me… Lunch hour is the loneliest hour of the day!”
― Charles M. Schulz
I think this is the cheese dumpling with the sour cream and salad.
Naturally, schnitzel ala Vienna with french fries.
Husband’s roast pork with Bavarian bread dumpling and potato salad.
My absolute favourite dessert while in Germany: Kaiserschmarrn mit Apfelmus (otherwise known as Emperor’s Bullshit).
“A man may be a pessimistic determinist before lunch and an optimistic believer in the will’s freedom after it.”

View of the Alps while having lunch. Isn’t it gorgeous?
