Mostly motoring, we arrived back in Germany, in Flensburg.
Somehow, many not so nice things striked us and made us miss Scandinavia: many baggers, homeless drunken people, dirty streets and playgrounds, smokers everywhere, restrooms one needs to pay for.
We still enjoyed strolling through the city centre with its characteristic backyards and half-timbered houses.
We had a Danish almond-Marzipan cake – a little too sweet!
Some evening performances captured by Magda:
One day, we had fun experiencing science in the ‚Phänomenta‘.
Interestingly, some experiments were already familiar to us from the ‘Innovatum’ in Trollhättan or the ‘Universe’ by Sønderborg ;o)
For our day trip to Kiel, we used some means of transportation that we had still been missing on our journey: the train. We enjoyed the big windows to watch cows, horses, sheep, and even deer in foggy weather. Using the restroom was just as challenging as during a rough boat ride. The train was wobbling a lot!
In Kiel, we made use of and were surprised to encounter many final sales. As we were told, Corona was one of the business killers. Many shops were closing or already empty *scarry*
We had fun on a playground hunt outside the city centre =oD
On the German World Children’s Day, we played different games in the ‚Volkspark‘.
We also observed a mouse nibbling an apple and a hedgehog baby *wow*
Our time in Flensburg concluded our summer on water. We are already wondering if there will ever be another sailing trip for us?
One week after our arrival at home, our boat was drydocked.
