Summer Edition `012 Day 21, 18th of August: Drottningholm

3 WEEKS ON THE ROAD!!!

And so this is halftime, let’s have a break!

Maybe at a castle maybe at Drottningholmen. I went there again with Sarah, Kathi, Peter, Steffen, Julian and the wonderful Doris! The castle reminded me a little bit of Sans Soucci in Potsdam but in a very tiny, simple, understating way. The garden was very nice, there is an island just for dogs and their keepers, a gothic tower which doesn’t really look gothic at all, some sheep, water & water, mazes, fountains, geocaches.

People shoting a photo of their dog with tourists.

Superheroes!

  

It was such anice trip! We walked across a lake, we had coffe and cake (morrotskaka)-almost tasted like the carrotmuffin I had in NYC. There we sat on a cliff and the boys went swimming again (at least the water was clean!) I really like it there you also had a nice view to the castle.

I need to take more photos with my Lomo, I forgot I’ve got it with me day by day! When we went back we went to Kathi’s place to have dinner, we made pancakes-yummy! We also played a boardgame but I don’t know the name of it- tired right now, for it is already 2:34 in the morning.

Went home around midnight but I walked from Slussen so I could take nightphotographs of Södermalm.

Gott natt!

(Kommentar Samstag Abend vor der Abreise: Aaaaah! Endlich Urlaub!!! Juhu!!!

Finlly the journey starts! I packed my backpack, guitar and tote bag & walked to the trainstation, OMG how heavy my luggage was!!! But I didn’t walk the whole way of course, we have trams here :)

The train ride was quiet fine, I listend mostly to Nada Surf, recognizing I missed to transform some LP onto my musical device I am using newly, whatever…

I read “Life of Pi” (Schiffbruch mit Tiger) this book is giving me strange feelings I don’t know yet which exactly.

We didn’t have delay (hooray!) and right now I am sitting on the couch of my friend Lisa in Hamburg.
Notice: To get a weekly ticket for Metro in Hamburg, you have to have a picture (must be a photo, not only a print!) of you. I hope I can get one somewhere tomorrow!

Now I have to go to sleep, 10 pm I am very sleepy since hours, I tried sleeping on the train but that did not really work out! Tomorrow my course is going to start! I am very excited about that!! I have to go to the subway station “Hoheluftbrücke” and take the U3 to “Uhlandstrasse” to get to the HAW in Armgartstrasse- I hope the weather will be fine!!!


view from the couch :)

Good night

MSE 2012: The days before departure

OMG… I just looked up all of my post and found THIS VERY ONE to be only a draft… I wanted to post this already in late July :/ Sorry :D But that’s typical me… So I am just about to begin to tell about my vacation :)

Hello! Before I started packing or stuff like that a friend of mine came over to dye my hair once again before vacation. Actually I wanted to turn the blonde part into blue or green but since summer is know as one of the hottest hours around here I decided to stay blonde and brown. This picture happened after another friend of mine braided me my hair very beautifully :)

practicing packing… And looking what fits into my guitar bag as well :)
