My Travels

🌍 I love to travel with my husband. Most enjoyable are our holiday trips by train.

Spiekeroog – a tour of the island (part 2)

About time for the second part of our tour of the island. Please pay attention: some consecutive words are linked to different photos. First, we go back to the small wood alongside the street “Bi d’Utkiek” (Low German: at the lookout) and follow the path leading up the dunes to the North (red spot 7). … Continue reading Spiekeroog – a tour of the island (part 2)

Spiekeroog – a tour of the island (part 1)

Goodness…! 😯It has been a month since we returned from Spiekeroog and I have not yet published a report about our stay on the island. The day after our rail, bus and ferry trip to what Harry refers to as the most beautiful island in the world, we started a nice scenic round trip through … Continue reading Spiekeroog – a tour of the island (part 1)

Spiekeroog, here I come!

It’s almost two weeks that Harry and I returned from our holiday trip to Spiekeroog – about time to publish some reviews. And what a beautiful island this is, folks…! Originally, we had planned to spend seven days at mainland East Frisia before traveling to the island. But on the tram that would bring us … Continue reading Spiekeroog, here I come!

East Frisia, Day 8: Time to Say Goodbye

Wrapping up our holiday to East Frisia, Ludovica was going to travel with us on the same buses and trains. Well, at least until Bremen Central Station where she would leave us to catch a plane to bring her home to Italy. The evening before, when we were sitting together to have a beer at … Continue reading East Frisia, Day 8: Time to Say Goodbye

East Frisia, Day 7: With Ludovika in Greetsiel

On Friday, the day before our journey home, we took Ludovica for a bus trip to Greetsiel. In fact, it was my first trip to that place, too. And it turned out arguably the best day of our holiday. Greetsiel is famous for their twin mills and a scenic harbour area and might be the … Continue reading East Frisia, Day 7: With Ludovika in Greetsiel

East Frisia, Day 5 & 6: Welcome to Dornumersiel, Ludovica!

Ludovica is a photographer from Italy who contacted us earlier this year. She told us she had been “creating a photographic reportage project with the intention of demonstrating how technology, and specifically love dolls, are helping others not only with their state of mind, but also to find a sincere form of companionship.” The intention … Continue reading East Frisia, Day 5 & 6: Welcome to Dornumersiel, Ludovica!

East Frisia, Day 4: Sunset

Day 4 already…Harry didn’t feel well yesterday – maybe because of the heat wave that we had had for about two weeks. So, we chose to stay at the apartment. We had planned to go out again and visit some of the neighbouring “Siel” villages but Harry didn’t sleep well last night, so we postponed … Continue reading East Frisia, Day 4: Sunset

East Frisia, Day 2: Accumersiel

The name of Dornumersiel’s harbour is Accumersiel, hence the title of this post. The reasons for this name go back in history, I believe. We slept quite long and there are no buses from Dornumersiel on Sundays, anyway, so we stayed here to take a little stroll to the harbour and back. I just love … Continue reading East Frisia, Day 2: Accumersiel

East Frisia, Day 1: Back to Paradise

Finally…!I had been looking forward to coming back to this place since we had to leave and head back home last May. Even more so as my lovely husband spent a few days on the island of Spiekeroog on his own. I don’t know how I would have made it through those days, had my … Continue reading East Frisia, Day 1: Back to Paradise

East Frisia, Day 8 – Journey Home

Time to travel home… We surely enjoyed our third trip to East Frisia and are looking forward to coming back in September. I hope it will be warm enough for some bikini shots then because I’d really love to do some fashion shots in a maritime environment. Except for some weird glances from passers-by, which … Continue reading East Frisia, Day 8 – Journey Home

East Frisia, Day 6 – Father-Daughter Day

Harry had been pretty exhausted from the previous days – it is quite something to push your doll around in her wheelchair all day, mind you. So, on our sixth day, I decided to give my lovely husband a well deserved rest. I insisted he’d go out but leave me at the apartment for this … Continue reading East Frisia, Day 6 – Father-Daughter Day

East Frisia, Day 5: Schlosspark Lütetsburg

Dear travel diary, Today, we went back to Schloßpark Lütetsburg, undoubtedly the most beautiful castle garden park throughout all of East Frisia. We had been here last year and even celebrated a renewal wedding ceremony in the little chapel on the estate. The weather was not as great as last year but still good enough … Continue reading East Frisia, Day 5: Schlosspark Lütetsburg
