After 5 days still in Hamburg
I knew Berlin. But Hamburg is even better. What a great town. In one league with NY or London or Paris.
Is's happening and they just let it happen, really relaxed. Laid back, young folk all around. Whether that's in Alster Perle, Elbe Beach Club, Schanze (Schulterplat), St. Pauli, or the Fish Market at 5 a.m. in the morning.
Hamburg fish market
Just before dawn till late after sunrise.
Later tourists and those still here from the night before mingle into a bizarre mixture.
Lübeck, Timmendorfer Strand and St. Peter Ording
A superb weekend and I met many of Kathrin's friends.
I leave for Lübeck where in an Internet Cafe I nearly manage to burn my lap-top with a stupid candle on the table. Who needs a candle in an internet cafe.
Computer still works. Now carries my brand mark.
Timmendorfer Strand is boring. I head for Kiel which does not inspire me either.
Next morning I make my way along Nordsee/Ostsee Canal to St. Peter Ording where I tour the beaches' dunes for a couple of hours on bike.
Hungry as I am around lunch time and on the road since around 6 in the morning I enjoy a beer for "breakfast". This looked like the healthiest option
Most people have sausage (you can choose between Currywurst and Hot-Dog) and Frikadelle with fries with mayonnaise.
It is mostly Germans that come to this holiday resort. I enjoy cruising the dunes, swimming in the sea is a pleasure, it's warm, just really crowded.
But I have other things on my mind and finish off my little adventure to Shleswig Holstein. I leave for Hamburg for another happening at Alster Perle with Kathrin, Toshi, Markus, and many others.
Wednesday morning I leave Hamburg for good, take the Elbe Ferry boat at Glückstadt, then further to Cuxhaven, Bremerhaven, Wilhelmshaven and Jever where I spend the night.
Next morning, watch the sunrise in Ost Friesland and I drive slowly along its coast, cross the Rhine later in early afternoon. I am in Holland.
