From arrival, 5 days

Almost 6 months ago Cedar and I headed off on a fantastic adventure... over 30 hours of travelling and then arrival in Hamburg, Germany. I haven't really blogged a great deal about the trip, nor have I gone through many of the photos (with the exception of the family photos I took). It's hard knowing how far away it is, and I've been holding on a little. Inside. Anyway. I have decided to begin with a 'photo a day' snapshot of our trip. A single highlight, moment, scene for each day we were away.

The day we arrived was New Years Eve, and after an afternoon sleep (for both Cedar and I), Sylvia, Jeff and Spencer took us over to Sylvia's parents home. Sylvia's Oma, Uncle and Aunt were also there, and we had a gorgeous meal. Afterwards we had Berliner buns made by Sylvia's uncle, who is a pastry chef, and warmed through on the radiator. At midnight the city was filled with fireworks, and a few of us braved the cold to stand in the snowy streets watching the sky...


A low-key, hanging out day with a walk through the local area of St Pauli.



A walk along the Elbe in the snow, with remnants of firecrackers all around, with Sylvia's parents as well and the little boys rugged up in their pram and stroller.


Two cute little boys playing on a blanket in the living room of Sylvia and Jeff's apartment, light streaming in through the window...


A walk to Lubeck for shopping, quite snowy and cold today, I loved seeing the snowflakes gently come down. Later they got a bit more serious and we hid away in a cafe eating lunch! It was gorgeous to see kids on a snow-covered slope using sleds and garbage bags to slide down the hill, all rugged up in their snow gear :)
