    Amsterdam to Hanover

    October 7, 2019 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 8 °C

    I have finally been given the chance to write on the blog - so a little bit of laughter and some waffling coming your way 😂. I had better start the same As Maurice - we had breakfast and a free breakfast at that, well it was part of our room deal. We hit the motorway, no side country roads today as we have a 4 1/2 trip in front of us. We arrived safe and sound and had to pick our apartment keys up from a little Italian Bistro. Maurice was in seventh heaven when he was greeted with Ciao ...and off they all went with their hands and language. We had perfect position for our apartment, 5 min walk to the trams and 10 minute ride into the city. We are staying right next to an amazing nature park, so we took a walk through and ended up at a gorgeous little plaza. It was around 5pm when everyone is out and about so we sat down and had a cuppa and enjoyed the people watching.

    You can tell Europeans (particularly the Germans) are trying to find the funny side of Brexit - see the pic we took of a rather large frustrated Paddington Bear, in a phone box, having a conversation about how well it going!

    A great start to our first day in Germany.

    You can tell Anne is enjoying doing MY blog - look at that smile (I’m very sick as I write this one paragraph 😷).

  • Day38

    Quiet day in Hannover

    October 9, 2019 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 14 °C

    Anne reporting:

    Catch up day today. Maurice needed a haircut and I wanted to do laundry. We are seriously having fun. Maurice found the quickest barber in town, not that that was what he was looking for. I don’t think he even got the seat warm, but he got the basics done and that’s all that was needed. After laundry duties we once again tried to find a supermarket ( it ain’t as easy as it seems) and eventually we decided that we would have a nice little Italian meal - which you will find out in the next chapter was the first hiccup of our trip. Not too bad after 40 days of travelling.

    A quick word from Maurice (read the next footprint) was it the salmon or was it the 2 litre Aperol Spritz?).

    Day out in Hannover

    October 8, 2019 in Germany ⋅ 🌧 13 °C

    Headed down to our “local” Italian bistro for our start up coffee and hot chocolate - although it had to be tea for Maurice as they didn’t have any hot chocolate 😭. We caught the tram into the city, a bit of an overcast day today so brollies were on hand. We had a walk around a bit of the old town and came across the ruins of a church which had been demolished in WWII. She was still standing firm and tall. We also did a visit to the Town Hall, trip down memory lane for Maurice as he visited the exact place 3 years ago . Magnificent building and we also caught a very small lift that sort of went up diagonal and then a bit to the left (that’s a definite) and then a few circular stairwells to get to the top of the tower and WOW...beautiful views. After a late lunch we decided to find a supermarket and head home before it got too late. I’m not sure why but every time I put in find a supermarket it takes us to the red light district. Thankfully not as entertaining as Amsterdam and we did eventually find one that served our kinda food. Home to cook and bed ready for another day of exploring.

    If you have a look at the last pic it’s not something you see every day. Someone had parked their mobility walker at the front of the apartment we were staying at!!!

    Supposed to drive to Zielona Gora but..

    October 10, 2019 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 11 °C

    Anne reporting:

    Well the poisoning..yup...from about midnight. Thankfully we were able to book another night at our apartment in Hannover and our apartment in Zielona Gora wasn’t too expensive. Maurice did a couple of trips down to our lovely little plaza just to get some air, but apart from that....let’s just say a very quiet day was had. Fingers crossed we are in the car tomorrowRead more

    April 26, 2019 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 14 °C

    During this Trip I enjoyed a long weekend in Germany. I visited my friends and we celebrated that we know each other for over 9 years now. ☺️
    We visited a brewery and went shopping in Hannover.
    It was also the first flight I took after starting my job in the airline business. It was amazing to see how all functions and actions at the airport work, especially on the ramp. In this case it was like watching a good Movie for me 😃Read more
