Sorry for the long wait, I’ve been without internet since saturday. Friday night we drove to my uncle’s countryside house which is an old little farm. On the way we met with dozens of horse carried carts. The farms are…
My flight from Tangier to Paris went well, no running late, no misunderstandings. The flight was a bit more bumpy, but it is to be expected with easyjet (compared to airtransat, transatlantic flights). When we landed it was snowing! I was so happy!
Did you know Venice is the doom of tourists? Maps are useless and you just have to go with the flow. The city is really beautiful though, with all its small alleys, bridges, canals, and no car/bikes anywhere.
After waiting 2 hours for our train in the Netherlands and then a 5-hour train ride split into 4 different trains, we finally returned into Germany and arrived in Hamburg. We made our way via an S-bahn train to Stellingen, the neighborhood where our host lived. This was a very nice area, with beautiful houses, beautiful trees, orange and yellow tree leaves on the ground and nice paths between the streets. We really liked this place, and our host was very helpful during our stay, offering lots of advice on what to visit, and also playing guide a couple of times.
We got to Strasbourg this Saturday afternoon, my head still buzzing from the night out in Paris. We were bummed when we saw it was raining, and it felt like we were gonna spend a slow, lazy day of rest, and only get going on the visiting on Sunday. BUT THEN we met Florian, our host for the weekend. Florian is a very nice, always smiling guy, around my age. He has only been living in Strasbourg for 2 or 3 weeks, because he is an Erasmus student, coming to study from Germany (he speaks excellent French though!) And Florian had big (and great!!!) plans for us. So we didn’t get the rest we thought we’d get in Strasbourg, but instead we got the best experience of the city we could have had.
