Most Beautiful Places in France

The most beautiful places in France

United Kingdom: cool little things you need to know

Do you know there's a hidden Jigsaw puzzle on British coins? Dedicate this to you, my UK trip gang 2013. 
Findings credit to Abraham Wong.
Coins belong to Kim.
Taken from canadiancontent.net:
The £1 coin has the Royal Coat of Arms on it. And, if you see carefully, the other coins (1p, 2p, 5p, 10p, 20p and 50p) all have segments of the Coat of Arms on them and it is possible to fit them together like a jigsaw puzzle to form the complete Coat of Arms.
The shield in the design features the three lions of England in the first and fourth quarters, the lion of Scotland in the second, and the harp of Ireland in the third.

Now, Have fun forming your own coin puzzle! *wink*

Germany: Spaghetti Eis (Spaghetti Ice Cream)

In 1969, a creative phenomenal dish had sprung out in Mannhei, grabbing everyone’s attention in Germany’s ice cream industry. Mannheim’s own Willy Wonka- Dario Fontanelle is the man behind this now- German specialty. Stringy vanilla ice cream pressed through a chilled Spätzle press, topped with strawberry sauce that looks like tomato sauce, desiccated coconut playing as Parmesan cheese, this is literally an ice cream that can be your main dish of the night. Well next time when your parents insist that you have a main before ordering desserts, order a plate of “German Spaggs” *wink*
