Shopping in Weiden, Germany

The next closest big city from where I live in Weiden... pronounced Vie-den. It's got tall buildings, department stores, boutiques, tall buildings and parking garages.

Today, my new friend Chrissy and I went into Weiden to do some shopping.  At first, we were going to goto a store called Real which is much like a a super Wal-Mart, but then I decided I'd rather go to the downtown area where all the clothing stores are.

Chrissy and I parked in a garage right in the center of all the shopping.  From the moment went stepped into the little shopping mall... I was in heaven.  This was exactly what I had been looking for.  Stores.  More stores.  LOTS of stores! And all with so super cute clothes!!

Oh... and an H&M.  Seriously.  H&M.  I was in heaven.  Since there are no Forever 21's here.... H&M is like the next best thing.   And let me tell you... it's SO MUCH BETTER than the H&M in the states.  I must go back to this store.  I must go back to Weiden!

Oh... and let me tell you about the shoe stores.  They are everywhere.  And cheap!! I got three pairs of shoes for 55 Euros.  Wow.  Can't pay that much at home for such cutes shoes.  Here's one pair of sandals I got.

And for lunch... we stopped in this little German restaurant that Chrissy had been in before.   I ordered Chili con carne with fresh bread.  It was unlike anything I'd ever tasted before.  Big chunks of ground beef with a red sauce and corn and beans.  FULL of flavor.  It was served in this big pot, almost like that's what it was cooked in.  I barely made a dent in it... but I took the rest home for Emily. YUM!

So... all in all... it was a good day.  Weiden has a farmers market on Saturdays and now that I know where to park... I just might go back there this weekend!!  People keep telling me to goto Amberg for shopping too... Goodness, I can't wait to check it out!

ahaha never been to weiden before... but shopping in frankfurt is amazing, too.

have you ever heard of "Rothenburg ob der Tauber"? You really HAVE TO visit this beautiful city one day. It's one of the most beautiful small cities I've ever seen (not on the shopping aspect, but on the cultural).

sorr for my bad bad english, I hope you understood what I was trying to tell ;)
