Yesterday, I arrived in Hamburg to spend a few days in the City. I also met a Hockey playing ER Caretaker from Chicago who lives in Bavaria.
We talked a lot yesterday, and decided to Explore together today. And that was a great Decision, possibility even better then coming to Hamburg in the first place. Exploring alone is fine, but Exploring with someone else is way better.
First, we head through the old St. Pauli Elbtunnel to the other side of the Elbe. That was fun, but also a bit annoying. There was a class of French school kids going through at the same time, and they where loud.
We then took a ferry to the Elbphilharmonie and then walked through the Speicherstadt, past the Chilehaus to the Jungfernstieg to take a U4 Train to the Elbbrücken Station.
We actually had to walk quite a distance to get to the correct Platform, and when we arrived at the Elbbrücken Station, we took a few Pictures and then left with the same Train to get some food.
We had originally planned to eat at the Europa Passage, but then decided to head on to the Messehallen to have a Burger at Dulf’s. And it was delicious!
After finishing our Burgers, we strolled through Planten un Blomen, to get my new Friends Ice Skates from the Jugendherberge, only to head back there so he could skate on the local Ice Rink.
We then split up for the day, because it was getting cold, and I really can not skate anyways. But it was an awesome day nonetheless. And we are probably going to Explore together again tomorrow.
