A lovely city: the Nuremberg podcast

It’s true! Nuremberg has a beauty and loveliness all of its own, and it’s jumped up our internal ranking to become our second-favourite city in Germany (after Berlin).

Learn why in this week’s podcast.

The Imperial Palace was closed for renovations:

We could only visit the courtyard :(

    Vid and I love Nuremberg too, but our favourite city is Berlin- the street art and culture make it special. Have you guys been to Bavarian villages down south? :-)

      Yes, Berlin’s still our favourite too. We’re spending the whole summer there, so we’ll see if it’s just a crush or there’s something deeper.

    Craig,

    I haven’t been able to follow your guys’ posts for a while… the feed hasn’t been showing the podcast as an attached download for quite a while, and (which I now know you were already aware) the web pages / site were often not showing up. That browser checker you implemented for a while really messed things up too :( It blocked tools like Pocket and Instapaper from accessing the articles.
