Hamburgers in Hamburg
#93 - Friday, April 21, 2017

For those of you who don't already know it, my favorite food is hamburgers. Can you imagine the joy I had eating a hamburger in Hamburg, where the meal was originally created. One must be informed that a hamburger in most of Germany is not like the ones you have back home. I am referring to real hamburgers, called Frikadellen, not the fast food variety. They will come as semi spherical patties around 1 inch thick, and are best eaten with a small bread roll and German mustard, called Senf.

Wasserschlösschen
#92 - Friday, April 21, 2017

One of the most interesting buildings I saw in Hamburg was the water castle know as Wasserschloss or Wasserschlösschen. It lies in the warehouse district, Hamburg Speicherstadt, and houses a small dining area at the bottom for a wonderful light snack.

I have travelled to quite a few cities in Germany, but arriving in the northern city of Hamburg gave me a completely different vibe. The Low German dialect is unfamiliar, the food is unique, and the architecture is different. Pictured here is the city hall, Hamburg Rathaus.

The train that went over the water
#90 - Friday, March 31, 2017

As a person who has loved trains since a young age, I have never been more intrigued than when I travelled from Denmark over to Germany. Expecting to pass over bridges and tunnels from island to island, I was in shock when I looked out my window to see my train boarding a ferry. The entire train went on a ferry and crossed over the Baltic sea from Rødbyhavn, Denmark, into Puttgarden, Germany.

Christian VII
#89 - Friday, March 31, 2017

Known for his childish behaviour as an adult, Christian VII was the king who was known to throw food at his dinner guests, leapfrog over visiting dignitaries when they bowed to him, slap people in the face for fun during serious discussions of state, and have entered a royal dinner with his pants at his ankles.
