Away Days: BRISTOL

On Friday we went to Bristol to spend the day there and see an amazing gig in the night. 
I had never been to Bristol and I always enjoy seeing new places, one thing I love about going to the UK is that everytime I'm here I get the chance to go to places I hadn't seen before.

The weather was really british that day but I think I got used to it by now and you can't really expect it to be all nice and warm in the UK at the end of october can you. 
So after a bit of walking around in the city we ended up in with a warm cup of coffee and hot chocolate in The Commercial Rooms.
And somehow they happened to have Austrian Wafers there! I'm always surprised how you find austrian things in the UK but it's a nice surprise most of the time. Unfortunately I still haven't found proper bread or pumpkin seed oil. but I'll update you about that!

After walking around a bit more and some shopping and chilling we wanted to get some food before the gig because we hadn't really had anything.
It was difficult to decide where to go, as always, but we ended up in a really nice place in the shopping centre called Coal grill and bar. 
And as always it was difficult to decide what to eat but in the end we decided on a Duck Paté as a starter and the "Chicken Schnitzel" as a main course. for all of you austrians on here, it wasn't a Schnitzel like we know it. it was more a Cordon Bleu but filled with mozzarella cheese and then wrapped in parma ham and coated in breadcrumbs (like a schnitzel). it was served with spinach and mash which was really nice aswell.
With all that we had a lovely cocktail (2 for 1!).

they have Coal in other places too, so if you every find yourself there, you should check it out, even if it's just for a cocktail, they do 2 for 1 everyday from 4 until close (11).

After this lovely meal, we went to The Exchange to see François And The Atlas Mountains, which was the main reason we came to Bristol for.
it was an amazing gig and just a very lovely day alltogether. thank you Bristol. and thank you Fraçois! it was truly incredible!
