Last weekend’s adventure took us to the beautiful Hamburg, Germany. If you look on a map, Hamburg is located near the northern tip of Germany. I honestly hadn’t heard of Hamburg before my friend Natalie moved there last year (to be with her sweet German boyfriend, Adrian). But I am so glad that she did because it gave us a reason to explore this great city! David and I met Natalie in Hamburg on Saturday and explored with her and Noah, the cutie 8-year old that she au pairs for. We saw the city sights, walked through a gorgeous park, drank gigantic German beers at the Hofbrauhaus, visited the Hamburg Dom (carnival), and the amazing Miniature Wonderland. That place is unreal – miniature replicas of towns in Germany, Switzerland, USA (they even had replicas of Port Canaveral and Seaworld!), a realistic tiny airport, and so much more. Those artists are extremely talented and patient. On Sunday, we explored the lively Fish Market, not even sure how to describe this place. A rock concert, partiers from the night before enjoying the sunrise, fish being auctioned off, beautiful baskets full of fruit for 10€, beer sold right next to a coffee cart. It was a party… on a Sunday morning. Then, we did a great walking tour to learn more about the city (fun fact: Hamburg has more bridges than Venice and Amsterdam combined! So much water!), followed by lunch, and a fast elevator ride up the beautiful St. Michel church tower, then a quick PHOTO SHOOT with Natalie and Adrian, and a harbor cruise around Hamburg. It was a great weekend exploring Hamburg.
First up, a quick mini session with my beautiful friend Natalie and that guy she randomly met at a bar in Tallahassee two years ago…who happened to become the love of her life. Now they are enjoying life together in Germany with their sweet dog, Dexter, aka: Tiny!
