We’ve made it to Hamburg – and just had a great day in the city. Totally amazing place – loads of “wow” sites everywhere – very impressive – far too much to see in a day. Weather was superb too! Only down side was lack of WiFi in appropriate places – so unable to check emails.
Three weeks down now and still having fun! The further East you go – the less people speak English…. So we’re learning well – well by that I mean we’re learning to “S-P-E-A-K S-L-O-W-E-R” and in a French accent – and it seems to work. Our pocket translator is crap – but our laptop software is pretty good – we’ve even had a conversation “typing” with someone! Well sort of.
Distinct lack of English around – not seen anyone else at all. As we’ve not seen/heard the news for three weeks – we assume everything on the island is still okay!
