Hamburg Day 3

My final day with my wife…. It felt sad but we definitely wanted to make the most of it! We started with our breakfast routine and I packed up my stuff so I was ready to have the day out. I got my trainers on and we hit the road. We walked and walked and walked, talking and taking in the view and fun times together.

We stopped for a top up waffle and then rolled the rest of the way round the lake to Christine’s work place. It was great to see her office and where she spends her days. I will be able to picture it so clearly now!

Then as per instruction back home, we rolled (good ol’ waffle!) to the stadium to get a shirt and of course continue the giggles. We stopped at an old fashioned photo booth first and I’m sure everyone in Hamburg could here is laugh as we posed away like the paparazzi were there for us.

We found the requested shirt and went for a walk drifting around the city and headed back to the apartment for the dreaded return home….

Finally it was the sad time to head to the station and hug out our goodbyes. I had the best few days with my wifey and I know we are already planning our next trips to see each other.

Hamburg Day 2

Today was perfect. I had a lazy start to the day with Christine putting on a top notch breakfast spread that we tucked into in the sofa together. She even made me a hot chocolate using cocoa from Sri Lanka!

We got dressed and ready to face the day and head on out, but not before taking homemade birthday cake to her lovely neighbour! Carrot cake is the best 😍

We then jumped on the train and went to pick up our car for the day. I was so ready to begin our mini road trip.

After a 20 frightening minutes later (only kidding Wifey!) we arrived at the pier on the Elbe River. Whilst pulling up to park Christine saw her two friends that we were meeting, so before you knew it we were honking and waving like crazy people let out for the day! But a few moments later we were settled on the pier like old friends (well, the others were but I was honorary!).

There was swimming, sun bathing, eating, relaxing, laughing….it was like I had known Sara, Caro and Christine all my life. I soaked up the rays happily and I even managed not to burn.

When we all decided it was ice-cream time and nowhere was insight, we made the plan to reconvene at Luicella’s to gorge on the most amazing ice cream….I’m going to ignore the fact it is my second day running and stick the the reasoning of being on holiday…..

Wifey and I had the most romantic of evenings. We had a picnic dinner on the sofa, watching a chick flick with candles and the best company I could ask for. It really was a perfect day in Hamburg.

Hamburg Day 1

It was finally time for the reunion with my wife! I hopped on a plane at Heathrow (where I was on the same flight as her lovely sister – a good sign!) And soon landed in Hamburg to a loving hug and friendly face.

After a late night chatting and catching up we hit the hay ready for my first real day in Hamburg to begin.

Saturday morning and my wifey took me to the most amazing breakfast café. I had the most heavenly mocha and the food was to die for. Naturally we hardly stopped talking enough to eat the food!

Next up, as per my request we headed to the Hard Rock cafe to purchase my pin for my collection. This was the first time Christine had been into a Hard Rock and I was thrilled I could take her and she could help me pick my pin.

Our next adventure (well for me anyway, for Christine more the norm) we headed to the ElbTunnel and took the stairs like some kind of strange fitness freaks….there was a reason we were indeed alone!

The views were amazing! The weather was literally picture perfect and of course I had the best company.

Christine was an awesome tour guide and took me around Hamburg all the while filling me in with bits of history or informational tidbits. On a beautiful day like today there was so much to enjoy

Of course before long it was time to refuel. You will probably never hear me say this again ever….ever! But I had the world’s best salad for lunch!!!!

I think I will dream about that tasty greenery tonight it was that good….

A few stops left for the day. We managed to catch some awesome Lindy bop dancing by the lake whilst soaking up some fun music, sunshine and relaxation. It was a great view of Hamburg.

Follow that up with an amazingly tasty ice cream, a trip to the supermarket and a boat party, I feel like we had a real wifey date day! What a great first day in Hamburg!
