Moin, moin! Rostock…

Beach in Warnemuende

I moved to Rostock about three month ago and it’s like living in Halifax in Germany. ūüėČ The waterfront is only five minutes away from my flat share, it takes about 35 minutes for me to drive to the beach in Warnemuende and the people are very relaxed so far.

If you plan a trip to Germany this summer, don’t forget to visit the Baltic Sea and join me for a walk and a cup of coffee!

Here is my top five list for Rostock and Warnemuende!

  1. Warnemuende (try a “Fischbr√∂tchen” if you like sea food)
  2. Waterfront in Rostock
  3. Volkstheater Rostock
  4. Dance all night long at the Peter-Weiss-Haus
  5. Check out the KTV neighborhood (lot’s of alternative small shops)

Belated note: Summer 2017

Wow! I have been very busy since summer 2017 and lost sight of my blog. I decided to resign my job at the Academy of Performing Arts in Ludwigsburg, Germany, in August. Never really felt a conection with the city and I was tired to move arround from flat share to flat share every 3 months or so. Therfore I moved back to Cassel until I got the chance to work at the theater in Rostock. That was at the end of September 2017 and here I am: happy on the coast! Baltic Sea and harbor waterfront in the neigborhood and an awesome team to work with for a year at least – it’s a limited contract.

In between changing the job I made two cool trips last summer: to Halifax/Canada again (for the third time) and to France again (I stoped counting…just love the country and there are so many different regions).

My highlight in Nova Scotia definitly was the 3 days tour by bike on the Rum Runners Trail from Halifax to Lunenburg and back. It’s an old rail way trail and I did it on my own, so I had a lot of time to think about the last 1 1/2 years in Ludwigsburg. Hardly any people on the track: just me, the trees and the lakes, that I hopped in once in a while. I was also very happy to visit my guest family from 2012 in Halifax again and spent some time with friends. After I missed out to meet Angie on the Camino in Spain in 2016, it was really awesome to have dinner with her in Halifax. Special thaks to you girl! Perfect 10 days.

In France the hike up to Puy de Dome was awesome and the whole central region. Lot’s of hiking tracks to discover. Funny enough I forgot my hiking boots at home, so I had to buy new once there. Enjoy the pics and let me add: I wish you all a very HAPPY NEW YEAR 2018!
