Where I stayed
I had found a couch to sleep on for tonight at Kirsten's. The time that she wanted me at her place in Bremen was at 3. Leaving Heide at 9h30 and only having a 3 hour ride I needed to stretch that time. So I went and tried to get lost along the German coastline. I ended up at a beach resort. It was miserable out, but people were still there. After that I meandered through countryside on my way to Bremen, taking 2 ferries, chatting with one couple on one of the ferry's who were touring the area on bicycle with their 2 children
While waiting at the second ferry I met Karl who was returning home from touring Sweden on his motorcycle. He was returning early as the weather was terrible there. We chatted quite a while as this ferry ride was longer.
I saw so much beauty and unique buildings during this drive, stuff that the majority of tourists do not see of Germany. It was cloudy all day and I had a lot of misty rain. I arrived at Kirsten's at exactly 3.
We chatted for a while then went out for a walk in the neighbourhood where she showed me where the old ship yards were and is now a shopping mall. We also walked along the river and then ended up at an Italian Restaurant for supper in a renovated Fire Hall. We backtracked part of our walk which ended up being through a cemetery. It was getting quite dark and with the mist had that eerie, ghost like setting. We had way more fun in the cemetery than most people think you should. We had a lot of amazing conversation as we have very similar thoughts about life.
I have to move on to a different couch tonight as Kirsten had already promised her couch to someone else for tonight. I'm off to see downtown Bremen.
Life is Amazing! I live a Charmed Life!
