After the ferris wheel and much hemming and hawing, Em and I decided to get on a rollercoaster. Now, I enjoy a good scare from time to time but I can't really say with much conviction that I enjoy rollercoasters. Emma is downright petrified of them. But, we both decided to face our fears and climb aboard. The rollercoaster we went on wasn't very tall but it was very fast and threw us both around quite a bit with its diving twists and turns. After about two or three minutes we both got off and decided that it wasn't as bad as we'd imagined but at the same time it would be awhile before we got on one again.
(and yes, I did try) there was plenty enough for both of us. Sometimes it's just nice to share a meal with the one you love...
With brat and fries finished, it was time for a quick beer and a stop to buy sweets and candy floss for Em. We walked over to the food section of the 'fest and I stepped up to a bar to order the lovely local Stuttgart Hofbrau. Unfortunately for me, this bar was rotating! I thought this was an a very interesting concept for a bar and I told Em that I guess it would ensure the more drunk patrons a reduced chance to get further drunk due to their inability to walk up to the bar and order. Below is a picture of me and my lovely pint, and yes, that is an elk of some sort behind me. Don't ask.
Even though we had fun, we always think of them and miss them whenever we're apart. Em and I spent most the train ride back in sweet yet sad silence, happy to have had the opportunity to enjoy our day but also looking forward to getting to see them again.
