    Berlin to Hamelin via Wernigerode

    October 24, 2017 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 11 °C

    Up bright and early this morning to set off for Wernigerode which was 3.5 hours drive away to pick up Mena en route to Hamelin where we were staying the night. Mena made us a lovely lunch in her apartment before showing us the quick sights of Wernigerode - a brisk walk up the hill to the local castle, through the Altstadt (beautiful old town!) before we drove out to the world's longest pedestrian suspension bridge. I was looking this up before to find out that it was only the world's longest suspension bridge for a few months because Switzerland went and opened up a longer one in July! Poor Germany. It was quite cold on the suspension bridge, which is built by a rather large dam wall. Crazy people were using a zip lone that would have been over 1000m long starting at the top of the suspension bridge and whizzing down toward the lake. Other crazy people were dropping off a platform built below the suspenion bridge attached to a long rope which would then swing under the bridge above the lake. We elected just to talk on the bridge from one side to the other and back again. That was enough.

    We then drove to the village just outside of Hamelin to meet the Stolper family. What a lovely evening!!! We had a beautiful meal, and the kids got to sleep in Mena's room for the last time whilst Craig and I stayed in the hotel down the road.

    The Road Trip Begins

    July 23, 2017 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    Snapshot
    Where - Amsterdam to Berlin
    Weather - Sun and showers...we are driving - who cares!
    Distance - 720km

    Wow, what a day, so many unknowns we had to deal with but it all worked out. First the ship arrived in port almost 2 hours later than scheduled which meant we were late disembarking but that really was not of too much concern. Then we had to meet up with a shuttle at the airport that was taking us to our vehicle... all went as planned. Picked up our car - a Peugeot 308 diesel - brand new. Then we had to work out the GPS and also filling up with fuel before we even start on the open road.

    The funny thing about Europeans is that they think a 3 hour trip is a long way. Our plan was to drive to Berlin via Hamelin (the town of the Pied Piper fame), about 700km. All was going fine until the GPS decided to take us on a little detour to look at...what? It did this to us twice, once to a golf course area and the 2nd time to a McDonalds carpark. Anyway, we are awake to that now.

    We arrived to Hamelin around 5pm, had a bite to eat, some photos and then headed to our Airbnb accommodation in Berlin. First the GPS didn't want to recognise the address (Germans have some funny letters in their alphabet). We found something that was kinda similar so we were hoping for the best. The autobahns are pretty good but we generally were only in the slow or middle lane - the fast lane was for the seriously scarey speedsters who would zoom by at something close to 200 km/hr. Anyway, we made it to Berlin and we found the address of our accommodation (don't know how but we did) so all is good. Tomorrow we start to explore Berlin.

    Grohnde

    August 19, 2019 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 21 °C

    Ich fahre einige Kilometer an der Weser entlang stromaufwärts. In der Ferne dampft das Kernkraftwerk Grohnde. Vor 40 Jahren noch schwer umkämpft, steht es jetzt kurz vor der Stilllegung.
    Ich überquere die Weser und kurble mich ins Bergland hinauf.

    Hamelin

    We had a beautiful breakfast back with the Stolper family. The kids got to feed and hold Britte's rabbits, we had a tour of the tractors and said farewell to Mena for a long time to come now.

    Hameln

    August 19, 2019 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 21 °C

    Nach zwei Tagen Ausruhen in Hannover bin ich heute wieder auf der Straße. Mittagspause in Hameln. Eine schöne Fachwerkstadt an der Weser, und noch immer vollkommen rattenfrei.

    Letzte nacht in Deutschland

    April 1, 2017 in Germany ⋅ 🌧 13 °C

    Heute haben wir noch mal das ganze Gepäck durchgesehen und alles noch mal neu gepackt, wir haben die Rucksäcke angepasst und das Schöne Wetter zum grillen genutzt. Jetzt geht es aber ab ins Bett den morgen müssen wir schon wieder um 5 Uhr raus. Es ist en komisches Gefühl die letzte Nacht in Deutschland zu schlafen und für eine lange Zeit das gewohnte Umfeld zu verlassen. Morgen geht es dann aber hoffentlich reibungslos weiter nach Kiel und von da weiter mit dem Schiff nach Oslo.Read more
