Where I stayed
We went to a great typical German restaurant and tried all kinds of very interesting food. Some beef tartare with an egg, onions (can´t remember the German name for it!). We also got a certificate for eating this, it seems this is a popular thing to do in Germany!?
The following day we did a cruise around the canals although because of the off-season it was only available in German. So, needless to say we were just there for the scenery! There was tons of ice in the canal and it made Shannon a bit nervous since we were only in a small boat, but we made it. Overall pretty cool going through the big Port, etc. That afternoon we met up with Friedrich again for a really nice walk around the Alster (really nice small lake in the middle of the city). We stopped for a late lunch and had some yummy soup and beers. We said goodbye to Friedrich after a great visit.
That evening we ventured off to the Red Light District of Hamburg. Enough said. :) Ha ha!
The next morning we hopped on a high-speed train (just 1.5 hours) to snowy, Berlin - the city we´ve had on our list since we moved to Barcelona.
