Back in Hamburg for a few more days ……. 18/06/16

We arrived back in Hamburg from Berlin mid afternoon driving the 300 plus klm through heavy rain at times, our destination Finkenwerder to park at Rita’s cousin Dieter’s home for a couple of nights.   The family were happy to see us, we had a few beers, some evening abentbrod then retired for the night.   Next day Sunday we had arranged to meet Margret in Hamburg at a coffee, beer, food hall which had recently opened next to a very large ex WW II concrete bunker.  We had an enjoyable morning catching up and said our final farewell to Margret, we may not see her again for a while, she is a very generous and kind host, doing everything she can to make you feel comfortable in her home and we thank her, and the Bork family once again for looking after us while we were in Hamburg ….. Let’s hope they can come to Australia one day soon ……  The next day Monday we had to drive into the city to the apartment we had rented, once again through Airbnb in Ottenson, very close to the city centre.  Our Camper was being picked up in the afternoon.  Finding a park for a couple of hours was not easy but luckily we snagged one just 100 mtrs from our new place, we unloaded our Camper and not long after signed it back over to the young driver who was taking it back to Prague …… Thanks Anywhere Campers, we had a great time and having the two bikes were the best way to get around and see what we did in the last two weeks………
