Hamburg Harbour - Third time is a charm

It was the birthday of my mum recently. She became 60 and so we did quite a lot together. First I invited her for dinner and a concert to the ensemble resonanz. They played Bach and the Butoh dancer Tadashi Endo danced. My mum and me are fans of him since we saw him the first time in Hanami (movie by Doris Dörrie).

Probably no one remebers but I took photos of Tadashi Endo once many many times ago. I just looked through them and here is one of them.

The next thing we did for my mum was the actual birthday: my cousin and me visited her at her home and we went for dinner at a cute little restaurant. We had a great time. But I don't have any photos from then.
What I have photos of was the third time we did something for her birthday. It was saturday and my grandmother came from Schwerin and we spend half a day at the Hamburg harbour (yes, the harbour again. I don't know what drags me there this year so often...). First half of the day I had to work sadly but the other half I joined my mum, grannie, brother and cousin for a ferry ride, a walk and dinner.

Here are some photos when we were on the ferry. I really like the architectual photos I was able to make. It's really worth to take a ride on that ferry because it's included in the normal HVV ticket you use for bus and metro.

Also some photos from the walk we took. We were in Övelgönne again.

And here at the dinner table. My cousin for example, me and my grannie and a group picture. I hope everyone is okay with me posting this.

My cousin took this picture of me on the way home. I don't like the face I make but it's actually the face I make when it's relaxed. But I like the setting around it.

Also did I mention that I went swimming? Well, yeah I went swimming with Marie and Nina in Bikini and all... I don't do that often so it was kind of a big thing for me.

Also I will travel to the Starnberger See next week with my mum and my brother. I will get one wisdom tooth out one week later though ... ugh.

Cheers, mates~

Hamburg Harbour - Gateway to the world

The last weeks I went a lot to the harbour somehow. First time with my mum, cousin and brother and second time with my dearest friend Anne. I wanted to take the chances because it was good weather and I usually don't go to the harbour that often.

The first trip we were at Övelgönne, the beach and all the tiny lovely houses along the water. It was really a nice area and some lovely views.

The second trip was around the area of the fishmarket and Landungsbrücken. We had some icecream at the vegan place called Liberty Café and went for a walk at the water. Also I gave Anne some late birthday gift which arrived like almost 2 months late: A Sailor moon-pendant of Sailor Jupiter. By that time I ordered it two times because I wasn't sure if even one would arrive. But now we both have one. :D

Well, I hope you all are doing alright!
