I am in Dresden Germany with my eldest son , visiting my brother who lives here and who I have not seen in more than 9 years, my loving mother is here as well, making this getting together even more special, she had to flight from Colombia.
My heart was beating fast and even the feeling of tiredness disappeared as I was so excited to this meeting. I live in New Zealand , you can imagine how long it took us to be here.
My brother introduced us, to a wonderful couple , their names are Ines and Jens , they both are in their late forties, they’re both Germans. I really wanted to have the experience of being and enjoy this beautiful country culture.
Ines and Jens , invited us to not just one day, but two to give us special attention and a taste of Germany.
Saturday; they took us to a big castle for a tour, then they invited us to have cake and coffee, and to end the day they invited us to a traditional bbq. I’ve never seen so much food and the combination of delicious vegetarian food,
Inés prepared a delicious vegetarian recipe that I want to share with you.
It’s perfect for a summer bbq. So easy to make.
I ended up sleeping on a chair after so much food on the table. How wonderful to meet people like this.
Halloumi with vegetables on the bbq
In a foil paper , put a bit of olive oil, make a layer of onions and tomato.
On top of this put a portion of Halloumi cheese and to end, put your favourite herbs like basil and coriander.
Make sure the foil paper is nice and tight and put it on the bbq for about 10 Mins.
It’s ready for you! The perfect halloumi with vegetables on the grill.
But this is not all, on Sunday we were invited to another castle , from Ines and Jens( the same wonderful people), then straight to a traditional fish restaurant where we ate a lot! I think my clothes are not fitting anymore 😦 I forgot to mention the photo session at every stop!We went to have a visit to a couple of castles in a place called Meissen and to end our day, can you guess what we ate…
Cakes , coffee and beer:)
This is to remember
You never know when you can find friends for life. Those people who open the doors from their homes, who open their hearts to receive yours, who give you their time and spend every little bit of it to make you happy!!
They are a treasure! I could not believe what wonderful people they were. I live very isolated, people don’t share very much, people don’t open their hearts much and receiving so much love from unknown people is MAGIC , magic for the heart and magic for the soul.
We need more people like this in the world! If we do the world will transform!
