    Day 6. Crailsheim to Bremen, Germany

    August 10, 2019 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 21 °C

    Day 6. Crailsheim to Bremen.
    We packed in the morning. Final shopping in town. Mucki packed us a superb lunch to eat on our train trip. Mucki and Wolfgang drove us to the railway station. Farewell to beautiful Crailsheim, relatives and friends until October.
    Our train travel started at 12:18 with an RE train to Nürnberg then 13:33 ICE train to Hannover then 17:20 RE train to Bremen arriving 18:39. Cousin Horst Kilian, my godfather, picked us up from the station.
    We walked to Hotel Plenus to drop off our luggage, then to the Steak & Salad Restaurant Maredo, to meet up with Carola.
    After dinner Ron and I took a short Walk around the Bremen Market Square area. It was lively with people and entertainment. Bremen is a beautiful city.

    Show #2 Bremen

    October 19, 2019 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 12 °C

    Nach einem Late Check-out im Hotel haben wir uns gegen 13 Uhr in der Halle eingefunden. Noch schnell die letzten Kabel beschriftet damit morgen wieder alles da steckt wo es hin muss und dann endlich in den Nightliner eingezogen. Gut das wir die Betten schon vorher vergeben haben. So blieb die AlleRennenInDenBusUndStreitenSich-Aktion aus.

    Danach habe ich mich, mehr aus Langeweile ins benachbarte Einkaufszentrum verzogen. Noch ein bisschen was im Drogeriemarkt besorgt und dann doch kurzerhand noch ein bisschen geshopped.

    Nach einem ersten Nickerchen im Bus konnten wir dann in unsere zweite Show starten. Bremen war ein zweites mal in Feierlaune und hat den Club, um die Rapper zu zitieren 'ZERFETZT'.
    Nachdem die Jungs im dunkeln mit ihren LED Herz Jacken auf der Bühne die letzten Zugaben spielten konnte der Abbau beginnen.

    Für's erste mal ging das schon ganz gut. Tendenz nach oben ist da aber nach 1,5std fertig sein war schon echt gut.

    Jetzt geht die Tour richtig los.

    Show #1 Bremen

    October 18, 2019 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 14 °C

    Nach einem sehr langweiligen Tag zwischen Soundchecks und Produktions Besprechungen war es nun endlich soweit.
    Boris (Fettes Brot) sitzt vor einem Kabukki Vorhang allein auf der Bühne an einem kleinen Holztisch und zitiert, ein wenig abgewandelt, den Anfang vom oldtime Klassiker Song Ohne Dich der Münchener Freiheit.
    Der Kabukki fällt und die Show beginnt.

    Auch wenn die Jungs älter geworden sind und Baggies und Basecaps nicht mehr so cool aussehen wie mit 18 hat sich dennoch nichts verändert - Die Songs rocken, das Publikum hebt die Hände und bounced mit dem Beat und die Show hat eine unfassbare Energie.

    Von 'Jein' über 'Emanuela' bis hin zum neuen Song 'du driftest nach rechts' ist alles, was für mich zu Fettes Brot gehört dabei. Die Ohrwürmer sind schon jetzt vorprogrammiert.

    9b. Klimahaus, Bremerhaven

    August 13, 2019 in Germany ⋅ 🌧 13 °C

    We travelled across an area of 5,000 m2: trekking through diverse climate zones and encountering people whose daily lives are profoundly affected by the surrounding climate.
    Switzerland: alpine climate of Isenthal, in the canton of Uri. Wandered through the lush green meadows, past the cows, headed up the mountain along jagged rock formations to the cross (gipfelkreuz) on the summit.
    Seneghe in Sardinia: provides unique insights into climate events and weather patterns.
    Kanal in Nigeria: Drought, expansiveness, aridity, heat, sand and wind – all are part of daily life in the Sahel zone. We walked on desert sands and discovered that the northern Sahara was once a green region that developed into a desert over the course of time.
    Ikenge in Cameroon: has an abundance of water, but also a hot and humid climate, making it a paradise for animals and plants. With their almost limitless diversity, rainforests are the treasure troves of our planet.
    Queen Maud Land, Antarctica: Cold, ice, snow and a frigid wind to top it off. Temperatures well below zero, and endless ice of white landscape and ice shelves – vertical cliffs with a face of ice and snow – and plateaus.
    Satitoa in Samoa: below the surface of the water is a unique underwater world, captured in a series of large aquaria that parade the diverse lives of fish and coral on a South Pacific fringing reef.
    Gambell in Alaska: a small town on the remote island of St Lawrence where the indigenous inhabitants of the island, the Yupik, have lived off seal hunting and whaling for thousands of years.
    Hallig Langeness in Germany: the Halligen islands are surrounded by the turbulent North Sea, the flooding tides and the rising sea levels. Only in the middle of this Hallig island do your feet remain dry.
    Bremerhaven in Germany: the Journey ends.

    Day 40. Bremen, Germany

    September 13, 2019 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 16 °C

    Horst drove to bring Vera to us for breakfast. Nice leisurely breakfast together.
    Off for a walk in Bremen. We went to the Market Square. I bought 5 figs for 2€. This main square is surrounded with magnificent buildings. The statue of Roland has been cleaned so we had another photo with him. Also a photo holding the feet for good luck of the Bremen Musicians (famous Grimms fairy tale about being able to achieve more if you work as a team with others than as an individual and being able to cope better if surrounded with friends).
    We walked to the Böttcherstrasse Museum to see the top floor hall used by the SS to train in the Spiritualism of Atlantis however it is closed until Sunday while they set up for an exhibition “Ich bin Ich” by Paula Modersohn-Becker.
    The Bremen Roland is a statue of Roland, erected in 1404. It stands in the market square of Bremen, Germany, facing the cathedral, and shows Roland, paladin of the first Holy Roman Emperor Charlemagne and hero of the Battle of Roncevaux Pass.

    September 13, 2019 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C

    In the Faulenviertel by the City Hall is the copper Trumpet Musician Statue.
    The story behind the trumpeter is that he saved the residents from a devastating city fire by blowing his trumpet through the streets and waking up everyone.
    The Bremen City Hall is the seat of the President of the Senate and Mayor of the Free Hanseatic City of Bremen. It is one of the most important examples of Brick Gothic architecture in Europe.
    Dinner at Paulaners on the Schlachte with Margret and Jochen. Then a lovely walk walk back through the city.

    We had a fabulous meal at Haus Berkelmann. I had Venison with spätzle and blaukraut. Ron and Horst has chicken with orange, ginger and pineapple.
    Back to Bremen. We played cards and drank an original Santorini white wine. After dinner we had Linie Aquavit, this schnapps like drink is taken to the equator in a ship to mature.
    Horst also showed us one of his many achievements, a certificate received in 1977, Knight of the Sunshine City of Miami Beach. He has lived an amazing and hard working life.
