Euro Road Trip Diary – Day 78

Friday 17th August We woke up in the Black Forest, with the plan of finding an authentic black forest gateau for breakfast cake. A bit of Googling soon revealed that the black forest gateau is actually “one the world’s most bastardised cakes.” It’s generally made with lots of brandy, which most imitations leave out, or… Continue reading Euro Road Trip Diary – Day 78
