WInterrail into the 20s, each stop posted on the same day...3 months later

WInterrail - 3 & 4 January 2020 (Kiel & travelling home)

My interrail trip last summer (2019) gave a taste for more.
This time, I have written about my trip on  https://karinblomblom.wordpress.com/
 
Accompanying below pictures, I have sometimes cited (in italic) a few lines from my "wordblog"  and sometimes there is instead a new supplementary text.


When a Euro coin caught up with me in Kiel.

 

Leaving Kiel for a windy night at sea.

 


Seeing the interior of my cabin, reminds me of the nightly cracks, probably originating from the cabin table...

 


...and how reassuring a breaking dawn can feel.



Trying to catch the first possible train home, I was one of the first touching steady ground & heading for the tram to the central station.

 


Even though I love the feeling of anticipating a trip, coming home is also special. It can be sitting still in your seat while your fellow passengers start getting their luggage, only to prolongue your trip just a little bit more , looking out, seeing the familiar station and knowing that standing in my own shower and sleeping in my own bed is also a very good thing!...

WInterrail - 2 January 2020 (Lübeck)

My interrail trip last summer (2019) gave a taste for more.

For those eager to learn about the sites, below links lead to the corresponding reading at the tourist information pages.

Leaving Hamburg for Lübeck.

 

Holsten gate, the symbol of Lübeck

 


I sometimes tilt my camera/mobile just to get as much as possible into the picture, this time with a part of the huge and beautiful town hall and a little slice of Niederegger...



Obviously, I'm not the only one keen on Marzipan... ;-)

 

The Hospital of the Holy Spirit

 

Catching the light at Königstraße...

 

Charming cups saying "New York is the town where no one sleeps. Luckily we are in Lübeck"

 


After a difficult choice among many temptations, I opted for this marzipan and nougat roll with my cappuccino.


What could a Marzipan beef taste like... Perhaps like Marzipan?

 


Holsten gate by night

 


I stayed there for about two hours for the calm atmosphere, looking back on the past days with joy and writing about my trip that was now approaching its end.

WInterrail - 1 January 2020 (Hamburg & Hamburg Altona)

More Hamburg photos in my portfolio


...I crossed the open space where I had followed the fireworks the night before, now bearing untidy reminiscences from the festivities

 

When thinking back on this day, the mist of the morning and afternoon plays an important role as it heightened the clear colours of for instance a yellow boat by the shore or the blue bar by a deserted café.

 

Being New Year’s morning, Hamburg Altona was a very quiet place...

 

Except for loving the Art Nouveau style, it seems I am also becoming a railway station nerd. If it is not for the art of the station,...

 


...it’s for the anticipation of travelling…

 


Deichstraße

 


The next point on my best plums list was Chilehaus which lightened up in the grey mist with all its lights and beautiful architecture

I was so impressed by Chilehaus and with the special light of the mist, I couldn't stop myself from taking lots of photos from which 9 more are found in my portfolio
