Hello! I can’t believe that it’s October 1st today! Did everyone have a good September?
Some highlights from September include finishing work for the summer, flying for the first time, and finally being reunited with my boyfriend! I’m getting to experience a whole new country, culture, and language!
Today I wanted to talk about what we did yesterday! I’m going to be linking up for my very first Thinking Out Loud Thursday over at Running With Spoons! Thanks Amanda! I know this post is going to be some pictures and some rambles so what better place to link up with! Yesterday when Matthias was through with work, he showed me some of Hamburg! This was my first real time seeing stuff besides from being in a car or at a mall so I was really excited. We went to the Port of Hamburg and St. Micheal’s Church.
This was the view after getting off the train and walking over a bridge.The first order of business was getting some food! Matthias and I split fish and chips from one of the many restaurants at the port. We ate with this pretty site in front of us! The yellow building in the left-hand side of the picture is where the Lion King musical is put on!
After eating, we walked to the Elbe Tunnel to walk through. This tunnel goes underneath the port to the other side! Once exiting the tunnel, we walked around the building to see this! The building on the left with the dark brown roof is where we came from!The cool building on the right in this picture is suppose to be (or is already) Hamburg’s Opera House. I thought it looked really cool! Then we walked back to the other sideThe center area of the tunnel is for cars to drive through.
From here, we headed to the St. Micheal’s Church. We paid 5 euros to go up to the tower. I thought I wanted to take the stairs, but we ended up taking the elevator up and the stairs down. On the way down, there were quite a few people struggling to catch their breath on their way up. Needless to say, I think we made the right choice, even if it means we’re lazy! The views at the top were unreal! And a little selfie action…After walking down the 452 steps we headed back to the port. We went to a Häagen-Dazs shop for some ice cream! I had a scoop of Salted Caramel and Brownie Caramel in a waffle cone! After we were done here, we headed for the train and home. It was a fun afternoon getting to see some of the city!
Have a good day! I’ll talk to you tomorrow!
