Blogger Meeting

Blogger Meeting in the GNM

One of the most important aspects of my blogging is getting in touch with people from all over this planet. Since starting the “Streets of Nuremberg” more than six years ago, I have connected with many wonderful people. One of them is Marion, a.k.a Little Miss Traveler. She runs a wonderful travel blog, the Love Travelling Blog. There she blogs passionately about her own travel diaries to provide her readers with plenty inspirations to plan their own trips to great locations. We’ve started our blogs about the same time six years ago and have been following each other pretty much from the beginning.

We’ve always talked about meeting each other in real life once the opportunity arises. And finally Little Miss Traveler made it to Nuremberg for a long weekend, accompanied by her son. The Significant Other and I met them Sunday afternoon for a joint trip to the Germanisches Nationalmuseum, and after that enjoyed some local beer and food and great talks. For some further photos of our meeting continue after the jump….

You have to visit Marion’s Blog to read about the vast itinerary she had panned for Nuremberg. Spending three days on the Streets of Nuremberg, she saw all the highlights there are to see, plus more. You can read here the ventures of day 1, day 2 and day 3. It is clear that one never explores one’s own city like a traveler would do. But I was most amazed how much our visitors from the UK have fit into three days. Be sure to check out here posts about my city!

The Significant Other and Little Miss Traveler

After our visit to the Germanisches Nationammuseum, we went to the Schäufelewärtschaft for a taste of roast pork shoulder (Franconian speciality and by far my most favourite dish).

The four of us enjoyed a relaxed dinner, chatting away as we would have known each other for a long time (which, virtually, we have of course). And we decided it will not be our last bloggers meeting, be it on the next visit of Little Miss Traveler in Franconia or when The Significant Other and I will head to the UK. Make sure you visit Marion’s Love Travelling Blog and read the post to get a full picture on what’s to see on the streets of Nuremberg.

Have a great Sunday

  1. What a beautifully written post Marcus! It was definitely a highlight of our trip spending time together and we enjoyed it immensely returning home with such fond memories which will now lead to a long lasting friendship. Here’s to our next meet-up either in the U.K. or Germany!

  2. Meeting people in person whom you interact in an online world is quite interesting. I have had this opportunity many times. The best part is that it doesn’t feel like you are meeting for the first time because of numerous exchange of thoughts via comment. Anyways, it is good to see you in front rather than behind camera, Marcus. Hope someday we get to meet, as well! 🙂
