Hallo! Greetings from dear old Hamburg, Germany! Well, we may still be in Seattle, but it's Travel Tuesday and we are going across the Atlantic to reach our next destination! This destination is really special to us because we have an wunderbar friend who lives here! We have yet to go in real life, but from the stories she tells it sounds BEAUTIFUL! We met her in high school while she was an exchange student, and soon became best friends with her, and we still keep in touch! She's actually coming to visit us in Seattle in July and we are really looking forward to it! We dedicate this Travel Tuesday to her!
From what we heard we would love to visit during the holiday season. Christmastime is as special in Hamburg as it is for us.
We really think it's cute how they call Christmas lights 'fairy lights' and we have caught on to this habit as well. No matter where you are, when fairy lights are shining at night it makes everything so much more special.
In Hamburg, they have a Christmas Market, that seems to cover all the basics of a good Christmas and more! They have old-fashioned carousels, parades, and Santa can be seen flying high above the city every night! It's something we want to experience so bad.
Hamburg is not only pretty during the holidays, but the rest of the year as well. There is a breathtakingly gorgeous park and garden called the Planten Un Blomen. We could spend the afternoon here basking in it's splendor. The fountain in the park lights up, it would be quite a sight to see at night!
For as long as we can remember, we both like to collect how to say 'I Love You' in as many languages as possible, so we thought we would add it to our Travel Tuesday. In German you would say, "Ich Liebe Dich" We can't help you too much with pronunciation, but Google Translate is a good place to start.
Auf Wiedersehen, that is all we have for this Travel Tuesday!
