    Wieder Zuhause

    February 7 in Germany ⋅ ☁️ 3 °C

    13 Stunden Flug, 2 mal Umsteigen, 1/2 Stunde Bahn fahren und schon sitzen wir wieder in unserer Wohnung.
    Auch wenn unsere Auszeit noch nicht ganz vorbei ist, ist es unsere Reise jetzt (leider) schon. Unfassbar, wie schnell die Zeit vergeht und gleichzeitig ist es für uns immer noch schwer zu realisieren, was wir alles erlebt haben.
    Jetzt freuen wir uns erst einmal unsere Familien und Freunde wieder zu sehen und versuchen mit kleineren Kurzurlauben uns nicht direkt wieder vom Alltag überrennen zu lassen.

    Den Blog werden wir aber an dieser Stelle beenden... bis zum nächsten Trip vielleicht ;-)

    Dresden

    July 23, 2017 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C

    Had a wonderful stay in Dresden. Dresden was bombed many times by the allied forces during the war and destroyed - it burnt for 5 days. Most of the old building were destroyed or just left with part of the shell. Dresden was then part of Eastern Germany under communism. Since then amazingly Dresden has now been restored and a large percentage of the old building have now been rebuilt - as they originally were. it's quite extraordinary but amazing. Our internet is very patchy for the next week or so, so post are sporadic.Read more

    Dresden

    July 23, 2017 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C

    Dresden is a beautiful city with magnificent buildings. It is hard to believe that it has all been rebuilt after being bombed at the end of WWII.  For decades, the communist regime of East Germany refused to rebuild the most historic and well-known landmark of Dresden -- the Frauenkirche church. Its ruins remained untouched as a symbol against war and as a memorial for those who were killed. It was only after the fall of the Berlin Wall that restoration and rebuilding began.The rebuilding of the church and other sights and monuments was mainly due to the financial support coming from western German states and according to a volunteer at the church from a lot of rich people. Some buildings were constructed in a modern way, others were totally rebuilt, based on old photos and the use of original stones found in the rubble. The restoration of the city has not been completed yet. There are construction sites throughout the city. We did a great Hop on Hop off bus tour which took us over the Elbe River with great views of the Upper Elbe Valley and its trio of castles - Albrechtsberg Castle, Lingner Castle (aka Villa Stockhausen) and Eckberg Castle - located adjacent to one another. Lots of restaurants to choose from and good food. We want Al to order a pork knuckle (huge) but so far he has resisted. We head to Prague tomorrow for six days and then back to Germany so it's not too late for that pork knuckle Al 😆Read more

    Dresden germany

    September 1, 2018 in Germany ⋅ 🌧 61 °F

    Eckberg castle is where our hotel is today, toured Dresden and got a history lesson in how the American bombs turned the city to rumble that burned for 5 days and left only one bridge remaining across the river. Tonight we have dinner in the castle. So much to see in this big world we live in. Riots in Chemnitz Germany 42 miles away, over immigration, same problems we have in USA.Read more

    Torgau

    August 27, 2016 in Germany ⋅ 🌙 23 °C

    A riverside car park stopover on our way to the north coast. It rose to 34°C in the van so we sat outside in the shade much of the time to keep cool and watched the stars come out in the clear sky as night fell.

    When reflecting on our experiences in the Czech Republic we talked about our plans to visit other countries. We started with Germany because there are so many advantages to travelling in a motorhome here: Will has been learning German, there are frequent stopovers and facilities for vans, the roads are good and the country is very used to international travellers. The only difficulty we could think of was the accessing the internet. Whilst we are really enjoying our time here we know we run the risk of spoiling ourselves and getting a shock when we travel to countries without such a good setup for van travellers, without a language we know and in a season where there aren't many tourists!Read more

    Großolbersdorf layby

    August 26, 2016 in Germany ⋅ ☀️ 27 °C

    After leaving the campsite in Prague we braved the Czech roads and headed north. There was a tunnel where the inside lane was suddenly closed off by a sloping barrier, roadworks with unsigned narrowing of the already narrow lane caused by barriers projecting into the road and no rest places to stop and change driver. When the roads improved and we started to see windmills and advertisements for parking we knew we were approaching Germany!

    We found a layby shortly after crossing the German border. It was a bit noisy with the road and lorry engines but we were glad of the familiarity. There was a scenic country view over a straw field on one side and a corn field with long distance sights and sunset the other. Vicky picked a fresh bunch of wildflowers for the table as Will cooked tea. The layby had small shelters with benches and signposts to nearby villages that could be reached by walking through the fields, but after all the exploring we'd done in the last week we were happy just to relax inside the van.

    June 9, 2018 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 25 °C

    Die zweite Woche haben wir ziemlich ähnlich der ersten verbracht. Tolles Wetter und einige gemütliche Ausflüge mit Sissy zu den Dünen - und dazwischen viel Zeit, die Seele baumeln zu lassen. An den diversen Stränden haben wir entweder unsere Füße ins Meer gehalten oder uns komplett eingetaucht - das Meer war wunderbar erfrischend. Außerdem konnten wir jede Menge nackter Dänen-Hintern bewundern.

    Beim Fischer sind wir nun vermutlich bekannt als die Touristen, die sich nie entscheiden können und dann immer irgendetwas nehmen von dem sie nicht wissen wie sie es zubereiten sollen 😂 gut so, denn auf die Art und Weise haben wir tolle Fische gekostet - Fisch-Footprint folgt noch.

    Der Abfahrtstag brachte Wolken mit sich - ein sehr ungewöhnlicher Anblick. Schweren Herzens haben wir also gestern unsere Sachen gepackt und uns auf die Rückreise gemacht 😔

    Vis ses snart, Dänemark, wir kommen bestimmt bald zurück 🇩🇰
