Japantag Düsseldorf 2013

Hi sweeties!

I'm not sure if I told you before but I went to Düsseldorf last weekend to attend the annual Japantag. I was really excited as it was the first trip I've organized in years but everything went well and we arrived safely on friday. Our hotel was right in the main trainstation and not quite what we had expected but it was fine and we haven't been spending too much time there anyways :D

After we got our luggage to our rooms we went on a little exploring trip and found the utmost shocking thing I've ever seen. It was a vending machine for syringes. I haven't been aware that drugs are such a big topic in germany.
We've been walking around looking for a nice restaurant for about one or two hours and finally decided on a korean one (which was to be honest maybe the best decision we could have made). I had Dolsot Bibimbap and it was absolutely delicious <3 nbsp="" p="">

Afterwards we just had some drinks at the hotelbar and chatted a bit.
Oh I didn't mention who joined me on the trip! It was Shu (a very good friend of mine) and his co-worker Dragan (got to know him only on friday). We had so much fun all through the weekend!

On saturday we (well to be honest they) got up rather late and had a second breakfast at Dunkin Donuts and Starbucks. I'm so in love with those donuts, even though I might have gained a pound or two thanks to them :D We went straight to the festival area and had a look around first to see where everything is and then we just enjoyed our day. We met loads of great people, had frozen beer, watched some BBoys at the rhein shore and in the evening we met up with the german gyarus!

I was really excited to meet them all finally. At first I didn't really know what to say because I'm a bit shy when it comes to talking to groups of unknown people but in the end we had so much fun <3 :d="" a="" already="" and="" awesome="" bit="" brought="" burger="" by="" came="" course="" drinks="" el="" especially="" even="" everyone="" fantastic="" foood="" for="" gorgeous="" gyaru-o="" had="" her="" how="" husband.="" i="" join="" just="" kitai="" like="" looked="" mad="" many="" miss="" mona="" of="" p="" paso="" perfect.="" she="" so="" sui="" surprised="" there="" to="" together="" us="" was="" we="" went="" were.="" which="">

Shortly before the big firework started at eleven pm we had to part and I was kinda sad at first but I know that I will meet them again at least next year in Düsseldorf! We missed most of the firework but the finale was just amazing. I don't think I've ever seen anything that beautiful *w*

On sunday we checked out of the hotel around lunchtime and went to the other side of the rhein where we visited the EKO-house and the shin-buddhist temple. It was overwhelming. It felt so new and yet so much like home <3 again.="" definitely="" go="" i="" ll="" nbsp="" p="" there="">

Afterwards we had a little walk in the nordpark and visited the japanese garden there and finally mad e our way back to the historical citycenter where we found the utmost awesome burger restaurant I've ever been to! It's called Space Burger and everything in there is just freaky. Starting at the interieur and ending at the burgers. I had an "el morte del torro" which basically consists of a fresh toasted bun, a superfresh burger, avocado, guacamole, salsa, cheese, jalapenos and those mexican chips nobody actually knows what they're called like. It was sensational! The soft and the crunchy, the sweet and sour, the mild and hot combined! I loved it!

Our flight home was quite quiet as we were really tired after two days of constantly running around Düsseldorf. My best friend Chris picked us up at the airport and the two of us had a drink at a mc cafe. All over it was one of the best weekends I had so far and I really can't wait for next year <3 nbsp="" p="">
Thanks to everyone who made this happen! I love you all <3 p="">
Love, M.
