    Day 54. Bremen, Germany

    September 27, 2019 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 14 °C

    Loving it back in Bremen. Leisurely breakfast with Ron and Horst. Lunch at La Bottega Italiana. We bumped into Margret and Jochen. Had a coffee together.
    After lunch a walk in the city. It is always exciting here whether in the city, the Böttcher Straße, the Schlachte or the many theatres and galleries. People are out and about and enjoying life.
    Ron wanted to see the Atlantis building an architectural showpiece started by the SS as a well being centre for spiritual enlightenment.
    We went into the Böttcherstraße gallery and they directed us to the Atlantis centre in the hotel.
    Unfortunately the tour of this top floor centre is conducted by the tourist office only on Sundays and it was already booked out for this weekend.

    Today I had my first german breakfast and it looked like lunch to me, because there were bread rolls.

    In the morning I was so tired i almost flopped out of bed.😴😴😴😴😴 In the car I normally read while Finn played on his tablet. In Scotland my mum bought 2 horrible histories books which I have almost finished.

    I havent been able to post good blogs because we havent done much interesting stuff, so it is more like shopping.💰💰💰💰💵💷💴💶💴💶💷💶💴💸💱💸💱💸💱💸💱

    So this is the end of my first of many blogs in Germany, because of 3 weeks in Germany so until tomorrow, good bye!

    P.S I learnt how to say bears in german. It is bären.
