Holiday in Hamburg, part 1

Hello everyone! Hope you’re all fine. We’ve just got back from our five-day trip in Hamburg. Hamburg, a major port city in northern Germany, is connected to the North Sea by the Elbe River. It’s crossed by hundreds of canals, and also contains large areas of parkland. Near its core, Inner Alster lake is dotted with boats and surrounded by cafes.

Here’s the view from our room.

We walked along the Alster lake.

Here are the main train station and the theatre.

Here’s me in front of the town hall. The city’s central Jungfernstieg boulevard connects the Neustadt (new town) with the Altstadt (old town), home to landmarks like 18th-century St. Michael’s Church.

We went to see the International Maritime Museum. There’s a huge collection of model ships, art, uniforms & photographs in Hamburg’s oldest preserved warehouse.

Sunset from our room.

Last but not the least, our hamburger in Hamburg.

Ten Things of Thankful

Spa weekend in Bad Füssing

Hello everyone! Just got back from our wellness weekend in Bad Füssing, which is famous for its thermal waters. In an area of outstanding natural beauty, it offered us a wide choice of events, wellness facilities, exercise programmes and activities. There was also a summer festival in their park so we really had a great time.

Maypole – raising

Hello everyone. Happy first of May. This morning we had the Maypole-raising in our town. There was a big crane that raised the Maypole, some speeches were made and the band played. People wore Lederhosen and Dirndl, drank beer and ate brezen. It was a lovely tradition.
