    Show #21 Düsseldorf

    December 27, 2019 in Germany ⋅ ☀️ 5 °C

    Der Aufbau in der Eishockey Arena ISS Dome war sehr zäh. Die örtlichen Kollegen haben sich mit dem Rigging, also das Gewerk, an dem wortwörtlich alles hängt sehr viel Zeit gelassen. Diese Zeit haben wir dann allerdings durch einen schnellen Aufbau der Bühnenpodesterie raus geholt. Sogar Zeit zum chillen und schlafen saß noch drin.

    Leider gleicht vorallem der Oberrang heute auch eher einem Schweizer Käse, trotzdem haben alle Spaß und tanzen das Weihnachtsessen ab 😂

    How I met your mother

    September 21, 2016 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 14 °C

    So we set out from Hilden and headed back in to Dusseldorf.
    Nice cool morning... I rode today with a broken spoke (another one) and we just did a work around to keep wheel ok.

    Morning highlight was when Ilona forgot about her panniers and took on a light pole. The light pole won and one of her pannier clips snapped. So while we were in the middle of a road on a traffic island trying to work out how we could temporarily secure it, an older German lady started chatting with Illy. I don't know heaps of German so just smiled nicely.... until I did catch a phrase I could understand which was the lady asking Illy if I am her mum... (So clearly I am aging well)...Read more

    Dusseldorf, Germany

    September 17, 2016 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

    Not much to report here. We spent a night in Dusseldorf and we weren't really impressed by the city. We did learn though that the drinking age in Germany is 16 years old and that there aren't any laws prohibiting public drinking. Those two combinations above left us thinking Dusseldorf was a pretty interesting place once the sun set. We also noticed a lot of middle eastern people in the city which was probably due to the German intake of refuges in the past year or two. Not too much of an identity to this city, but we'll cross it off the list. We did however have our first authentic German meal at one of the local breweries.Read more

    Abschied in Düsseldorf

    August 4, 2019 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 23 °C

    Heute war es dann so weit. Ich habe mich in Düsseldorf von all meinen Lieben verabschiedet. Das war sehr schwer. Tränen sind geflossen und natürlich auch Zweifel aufgekommen. Manche hätte ich gerne dabei gehabt, um die ganzen Eindrücke teilen zu können, ein Hoch auf das Internet 💚
    Nun muss ich meinen eigenen Weg finden! Ihr fehlt mir 😘Read more

    Day 63 - Cologne to Dusseldorf, 27 miles

    June 17, 2016 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 16 °C

    Short ride upto Dusseldorf today for a number of reasons.

    One the morning was spent doing a bit of maintenance ton the bike including a new rear tyre which will see was in a bad way! Two weather was terrible again with good hour spent chilling under a bridge at one point as I let a huge thunderstorm pass. Three as I arrived in Dusseldorf the weather cleared up and I simply fancied a beer in the sun and as you will see Dusseldorf is a cracking night out.Read more

    Ankunft ISS Dome + Flughafen

    July 7, 2019 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 14 °C

    Die Anreise war perfekt.
    Leere Autobahn, 160 und Tempomat. 👌🏻
    Sind pünktlich um 05.10 Uhr angekommen.

    Der Bustransfer verlief super und zügig. Ebenso die Kofferabgabe. Innerhalb 5 Minuten waren wir durch. Gewicht wurde auch eingehalten. 😅
    Traditionell noch schnell einen Cappuccino und Amerikano bei Starbucks, bevor es zum Sicherheitscheck geht.

    Der Sicherheitscheck ging ebenfalls zügig und reibungslos. Meine Kameratasche wurde kurz auf Sprengstoff geprüft, ansonsten war alles tip top. Nun gehts nach Amsterdam und von Amsterdam nach Las Vegas.

    Celebrating Dr. Birte

    September 18, 2019 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 16 °C

    Exciting day for Birte, as she has to defend her doctoral thesis after more than 5 years of research. She did really well and could cope with all the challenging questions of the committee. Afterwards we had a adequate celebration and some good talks, enjoying one of the seldom opportunities to see each other.

    Congratulations, Dr. Birte! We are very proud of you!

    Die Altstadt

    June 12, 2015 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 24 °C

    Die Altstadt -- the old town -- is where people go of an evening. I've been several times before, but this afternoon was my first time there with a camera. I wouldn't dare take my camera after the sun goes down. For what is strange about the Altstadt is how it can go from being the quiet, peaceful old part of Düsseldorf in the day, to the scene of debauchery that it becomes at night. To be fair, most of that is located on just one long street, but still.

    The reason why most of drinking that gets done in Düsseldorf gets done in the pubs and bards of the Altstadt, is because the Altstadt has forever been the site of breweries. There are a dozen or so of them here, brewing the 'Altbier' unique to Düsseldorf and the region.

    Apart from the breweries, every other building is either a cafe, a bar, a (Irish) pub or a restaurant. And the whole of the little old town is, as it should be, pedestrianised. I'm back off to the Altstadt now, for a meal at the Uerige brewery.
