Experts estimate that Americans eat over 20 billion hot dogs every year. That’s about 60 for every American each year.
Originally called frankfurters, their origin can be traced back to 1852 in Frankfurt, Germany. From the start, frankfurters were basically small sausages.
Today, some are made entirely of one type of meat, such as beef, pork, chicken, or turkey. There are even vegetarian hot dogs that contain no meat at all. Many hot dogs, however, are more like traditional sausages, because they are made from a secret recipe containing a mixture of a variety of ingredients.
NEW YORK STYLE
Although there are as many special recipes out there, most of them consist of a similar set of ingredients. These include meat, meat fat, filler (such as flour or bread crumbs), egg whites, and spices. Some popular spices include salt, pepper, onion, and garlic.
The lakes and wetlands along the coastlines are important stopover points for many migrating birds. The government has set up reserves for the birds’ protection.
Germany is full of famous, spectacular things to explore. However, if you venture beyond the tourist attractions, you would discover a side to the I Its beauty that is quirky, astonishing, and sometimes even downright weird but wonderfully unique.
It is a hybrid super sports car that will only seat two. It is an automobile with beauty, comfort and modernity. The Lambo family loves to surprise its customers and fans by innovating its models and creating new ones pretty often.
This is something I never thought I would contemplate in my lifetime – an electric Lamborghini. Some might call this whole idea sacrilegious, but the Italian supercar company knows that electric and hybrid cars are the future, and they don’t intend on being left behind.
This year the Terzo Lamborghini is initiating another revolution in speed, digitalizations and super-advanced mechanizations of the automovil.
This model is a fast most beautiful spaceship on earth!
It is actually a concept of the Terzo Millennio and it will inevitably offer far more visual impact than a fully formed production vehicle.
That said, we hope Lambo keeps as much of the original design as possible when creating its first hybrid.
Apparently, it’s codenamed the LB48H, and it could very well preview a replacement for Lambo’s current flagship model, the mighty Aventador.
So far, Lamborghini is keeping its cards close to the chest.
The Lambo company teamed up with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology last year in order to “rewrite the rules on super sports cars,” and the Lambo Terzo Millennio, an electric hypercar concept with some really bold ideas under its hood, is the result of this collaboration.

This speciality is served in all the big festival tents. There is actually not much room for experimenting, because the guests want the roast pork exactly like it’s done in Bavaria: with potato dumplings, sauerkraut and, of course, a lot of gravy.
Roast Pork for Connoiseurs and Epicures
The only exception that one can recommend with a clear conscience is exchanging the potato dumplings for bread dumplings. Many locals go on an excursion to the festival field on the Wiesn Sundays to eat roast pork with their families.

The Bavarian traditions can be enjoyed in special style at lunch time, accompanied by regional brass music in the beer tents. Whether the meat is served with crackling or without is left to the cook’s preferences.
My family and I love forests. Wherever we travel around the world we have to visit the enchanted forests the country we are visiting has. There is some special magic in the woods that penetrates our minds and soul. I think that forests are the soul of the earth and as such we cherish them.
BAVARIAN FOREST PATH IN AUTUMN 2018
Germans are passionate about their forests. They really are. And I love this country, its culture, its people, its forests of course. I could spend my whole life in the woods of Germany, exploring and rapping my body and soul with the smell of the trees and the magic of its soil. Now. the clouds over the mountains, just a magnificent wonder of this earth.

Into the woods
With that in mind, I’m travelling to the Spessart forest in southern Germany. The 2,500 square kilometers (1,553 square miles) of tree-covered mountains that straddle the states of Bavaria and Hesse. It is home to many species of Specht, or woodpecker, from which it is thought to derive its name. Badgers, wild boar, deer, racoons and martens are among the other wildlife that live between and beneath the trees.
The food in Frankfurt is varied, delicious and most importantly, interesting. But you definitely need some recommendations to come to a city like Frankfurt and without some good ones, you may struggle to know where to go. Reason being: Frankfurt is small but the hotspots are spread out, which means there’s not ‘one area’ to visit. If you are a connoisseur of good food, you want to enjoy different German styles.

AUTUMN IS ONE OF THE BEST TIMES OF YEAR TO TRAVEL TO EUROPE
I usually pack my luggage now and make preparations to travel to Europe, but make no mistake, I have to come back to my neck of the woods to take care of things and then go back to traveling.
So I actually travel twice in Autumn. I like to combine my travel destinations with my autumn medical conferences I plan to go to this time of the year.
My favorite places to visit in Europe are Germany (Bavaria, I love it!), Austria and Dubai. But the second time I return to the EU I like to explore at least a new city I haven’t been. This time I want to go to the South of Spain to enjoy the Moroccan culture too.
In the first six months of the current fiscal year 2018 (January 1 to June 30), Lamborghini reported another increase in worldwide deliveries, thus setting another record for the fourth consecutive half year. With a total of 2,327 cars delivered to customers around the world, this is an increase of 11% compared to the same period in the previous year and corresponds to the full year sales numbers of only five years ago.
The half-year growth was driven only by further increased sales of the two super sports car model lines Huracán and Aventador, since worldwide deliveries of the Super SUV Urus started only in July, as originally planned.
The sky-rocketing success of the Huracán Performante boosted global sales of the Huracán model line with the Coupé, Spyder and racecar versions, which showed an above-average increase of 15% from 1,400 to 1,604 units. The Aventador line kept the high level of the previous period with 673 units delivered.
The company expects to continue on a path of solid growth for the entire fiscal year 2018 and beyond, with the largest single market for Lamborghini once again being the US, followed by Japan, the United Kingdom, Germany, Canada, Italy and Greater China (Mainland China, Hong Kong and Macao). The strongest region was Europe with an increase of more than 30%.
