What made me really really happy this week:
♥ HAMBURG! I just love this city so much. The buildings, the docks, the ships, the seagulls,….. so beautiful! More pictures are on their way :]
♥ Staying at a really nice hotel. We choose the Holiday Inn and were very happy with this choice. Everyone was super friendly and helpful, they had an amazing breakfast buffet – and free internet, yay! We booked three nights for the price of two, I believe the often offer specials like this.
♥ Icecream at Herr Max. I would have loved to sit down and try some of these amazing cakes, but it was – understandably – way too crowded.
♥ The Lion King musical. Definitely the best musical I’ve ever seen and an unforgettable night. I had goosebumps all of the time and I might or might not have shed a tear or two…
♥ Franzbrötchen! A sweet pastry with cinnamon. I ate two every day. Hey, they were a part of the breakfast buffet, I had to take advantage of this!
♥ The Speicherstadt [historic warehouse district]. It’s my very favourite part of Hamburg, you can see it in the top right picture.
♥ Overcoming fears. We went to the Hamburg Dungeon even though I was sooo scared. Our tickets were gifts from a friend, otherwise noone could have talked me into this. I’m proud of myself, but not gonna lie: It was very spine-chilling. I hope I won’t get many nightmares out of this…
♥ Thees Uhlmann & band in concert. This guy rocks. He also tells the best stories in between songs. He’s been my favourite singer for many many years, so he’s got to be awesome, right?
