Hamburg’s historic label, ‘The gateway to the world’, might be a bold claim, but Germany’s second-largest city and biggest port certainly lives up to it.
Enough with the travel guide. The truth is, I could be writing about any city in the world, but it happens that in this one I and my baby saw each other after 5 long weeks. He has been on the road, eating quesadillas and drinking tequila soaked worms in Latin America. That’s not really all he was doing, but more on this topic in my next post.
We were planning a trip to Jordan and decided to meet halfway. You know, compromise is the foundation of a good relationship. That and tagging each other in memes.
There’s a lot to see in Hamburg, even when it rains. Which it did. A lot. We jumped into a cab, looking through the window, watching the raindrops slowly glide down the glass and pretending to be in music video. Ed Sheeran songs are a perfect backdrop to raindrop. Drop top.
By the way, I started to watch Game of Thrones season 7, because this way I can watch all the parts in one day. What about spoilers, you might ask? Well, I’ve learned to avoid them, like things that make you fat – mirrors, scales and photographs. And (not) to my surprise, Ed Sheeran is in the first episode! I could try to explain to you how this is funny, but that would be the same as Henry explaining to Tommy why he’s funny in Good Fellas. I can’t.
Ok, Hamburg! One thing we have learned on this trip – use Tripadvisor with caution. We tried a few top-rated restaurants with not so top food. If the place is packed, it doesn’t necessarily mean it’s good. We did however, find a place which was pure joy- literally. It was a Peter Pan themed burger place with amazing interior and Cocktails which I swear had actual fairy dust in them. Like Peter Pan didn’t want to grow up, I didn’t want to leave.
