Everything in Hamburg

Today was a super busy day. We woke at 7am and headed back onto the Ferry into Hamburg to explore the city more. The ferry ride this morning was extra cold and we were on the top to make the most of the views. Our first stop was the MiniatureWonderland which was AMAZING. My photos really dont show all the detail. This place is a Mini version of Switzerland, Austria, America, Hamburg, Hamburg airport and Scandinavia. It was really really really really detailed.
And all the cities and displays went from dark to light to show night and day so they all lit up so well. The cars, trucks and trains were all moving on the tracks too. All the people were detailed to the max!!
We then hired two bikes and rode around Harbour City. There is a modern part of the harbour and a older part that we rode to.
From here we got all you can eat Asian for lunch because we were starving and then wondered around a few gift shops. For a change i didnt buy anything. We got some bikes again and rode to the centre of Hamburg, Sankt Michael Church. This church was amazing, so detailed and huge. We lit a candle together and headed to the bell tower at the top. Bo made us walk and it was only 452 stairs! The tower was 109 meters high. I was struggling by stair number 200. Amy, it reminded me of the Eiffel Tower.
We then walked back towards the water and caught the ferry one stop down to a submarine that they have turned into a museum. I really enjoyed this and learnt a lot about Submarines! It was such a tight space, Lauren you would have died.
Oh i forgot, i got a photo with this cool statue dude on the way, i love these guys.
This is one long day! We then walked about 1KM to Docklands. This is a HUGE office building that is in the shape of a ship. People can climb to the top and see the view but you cant go inside unless you work there. Its made from 5 different offices for 5 different businesses.
We then came home, via the supermarket and i got to drive Bo´s car. Its a manual, allgood. BUT i went to go onto the left hand side when i turned out from a intersection. That could have ended bad, i forget we are on the otherside here and when you are not driving you dont take as much notice of it. But we survived so allgoood. We just played scrabble, and sorry to disappoint you mother, but i lost against three Germans. It was good fun though. Ellice if you are reading this get ready to skype girlfriend!
