Snaps of Happiness [Hamburg Edition] & Links I Loved – Week #13/2012

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?

[IKEA Hackers] ♥ One of my favourite bloggers shows some of her favourite blog posts – obviously, they’re all brilliant! [Pocket Rocket Fashion] ♥ Another blogger I really liked stopped blogging this week [oh noooo!]… but Tania made some great collages with outfits for every season. So many inspiring outfits in one place! [What Would a Nerd Wear]

    That ice cream looks amaaaaaaaaazing.  

    How funny that the hotel bed was two smaller mattresses pushed together.  It’s like they want you to be able to tell your parents that you and Sven didn’t sleep in the same bed.  Or maybe that’s only a lie we have to tell in the U.S.
    Can’t wait for more pictures!

       So funny, I never realized there was a difference in U.S. and German beds… it’s actually normal here to have these two small mattresses, all the grown-up beds are this way!

    I always love your pictures and hearing about your adventures.  Hamburg looks fabulous and I haven’t seen the Lion King Broadway show, but I need to; I heard it was amazing!
