Hello from Germany
Hello there. :) Saying hi from Northern Germany. Arrived safe and sound yesterday. Flew from NY to Hamburg where my parents picked me up.
Once in Hamburg we had lunch at a lovely fish restaurant in Finkenwerder. After lunch we headed up to Luebeck where our hotel is.
Today we went for a nice drive around the countryside, looking at some of the ship and cargo operations along the canals, zig zagging around the countryside, crossing the canal via the ferries etc.
Had a nice lunch at a pizza restaurant in Brunsbuettel (pizza topped with tuna and onion - a truly European creation) and later on the way home stopped at a snack booth where I had some yummy currywurst.
Now back at the hotel where I am enjoying some delicious German Riesling we picked up on the way home. And tomorrow we have reservations to tour one of the tour ships that is docked near here. Enjoying some nice time with yummy food and drinks. What could be better? :)
