Today was awesome, we did a lot of things in one day. This morning Bo headed to his cafe he works at to help out until 12. He came back here at 12 and i was still asleep! I thought i would have been up but nooo. turns out i got 15 hours sleep, it was amazing and just what i needed! From here i got ready and we headed for some sights. the first was a bridge called Estebrügge/Moorende. This is where Bo lives, it is the cuttest little village ever and all the locals know each other. There is about 3 thousand people here, so not many at all.
this photo looks like i am floating.
We then headed too some apple vine yards. They are EVERYWHERE in this part of Germany. All you see on the country side is apples, apples and more apples.
It was rather chilly today too. I am glad i brought this hoodie in Venice, i knew it would come in handy.
We then headed to the community called Jork which is about 20 minutes from his home. Here we went to many different little communities in one. First stop was this cool windmill but it was a restaurant in one.
here it started to rain, but that didnt stop us from taking some photos.
After this, we read about some history on the rivers and boats and then headed into Jork town centre. I dont think its bug enough to call it a city. this is Bo´s work. Its the cutest cafe ever, but closed for a week or so.
We went into the church and town hall of Jork and had a wonder around. There were some cute gift shops and cafes.
We then got some photos at Lüheanleger, which is a ferry point to head over to Hamburg via boat. This was a nice view of the water, but the rain and fog made it hard to see in distance.
Stade was our next stop, we walked around the centre, got some photos and then headed to some shops. There was the COOLEST shop called Butlers. They had perfect gifts for people. I brought more than i can carry, but i figured ill take it all on as hand luggage on my flight home. Bo also brought a few things for his family. They had the coolest Christmas decorations!
We then drove on the Autobahn to Buxtehude. The AutoBahn was pretty amazing, we got up to 160KM but cars were going at least 200KM pass us. We are going to do this later in the week with Bo´s aunty´s car. Apparently we are going to go 240KM plus so thats exciting. In Buxtehude, this is where Bo went to school before and after he came to NZ. His school was called Halepaghen Schule and we had a wonder around there. Such a different school compared to NZ! It was cool to see. We then went to go to the Church here, but it was about 5pm and they closed at 12. We headed for dinner where we had a Döner Kebab. It was similar to NZ and AUS kebad but on terkish bread.
We then headed home and chilled, skyped Kim, and had some hot chocolates! Bo is the best at making them.
