Flag of Germany  , Bremen,
Thursday, August 28, 2008

My back feels great. This is the exact opposite of how it felt yesterday. So why the big change? I needed a reminder. What I didn't mention in yesterday's entry is that once Inga showed me to my room she had to go teach a yoga class. I would have loved to have joined the class but was in too much pain. What it did do was remind me as I got up this morning was to do my own yoga and meditations as I was doing when I was at home before leaving on this Expedition. I slowly stretched out my back muscles and then I felt great all day.
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!

You found a couch!
That is so cool that you finally found a couch to surf on :)

I checked out the website after you mentioned it earlier in your posts and thought that it sounded like a really neat way to meet new people and to see the areas in a whole different way! Hopefully you find more couches and many new friends.
