Regensburg – Ratisbonne
Regensburg is a city in south-east of Germany, situated at the confluence of the Danube, Naab and Regen rivers. With over 140,000 inhabitants, Regensburg is the fourth-largest city in the State of Bavaria after Munich, Nuremberg and Augsburg. The city is the political, economic and cultural center of Eastern Bavaria and the capital of the Bavarian administrative region Upper Palatinate.
I’ve stayed one week in Regensburg for the Midwifery project, I’ve met really interesting people for my project and outside of it too. People were really generous, helpful and open minded. It was my first time in Bavaria and I had the feeling to be outside of Germany at the beginning (not in a bad way at all). Bavaria, is completely different from other lands of Germany, there’s many common point, but still many differences and that’s why I really like Germany.
During my stay Regensburg left me a really good memory, not only inside my head. A scar over my head ! I had a little accident with the roof of the flat where I was hosted. One day I was a bit late for an appointment. I walked out of the flat, it was in an old building of the 15th century, where the roofs are really low, especially for me. My head met the roof, I got a really hard hit. a couple of seconds later, I was laying on the ground, watching my camera, my coffee, my bag and MYSELF on the floor ! I started to understand that I was knocked out, I’ve failed to get up twice, but the third was the good one, my face was full of blood. Panicked by the scene, I tried to call the 112, but my calls were unsuccessful, old building, means no network ! I went to back inside the flat to clean and to see how bad it was. A lot of blood, but nothing bad, just a good story to tell and a good memory of Regensburg.
Regensburg is one of the oldest city of Germany with a rich history as you can see it while wandering in the streets. I had a really good time there and as I promised to my hosts, I’ll be back in summer to see how the little Italy looks, see you soon Regensburg !
