The Advent Calendar is a tradition we hold dear in Denmark. Every year you can see different advent calendar TV shows and lots of people make their own advent calendar counting down to number 24 which is of course Christmas Eve.
This year I challenged some of my students to make an advent calendar with photos taken each day of December until Christmas Eve. I don’t know if they have done it yet, but I have so far. I only missed one day – the 13th.
Hamburg is a lovely city. It’s easy to find your way around the city either by foot or with the U-Bahn. The city is a mixture of historic and modern architecture. As always the German people are very friendly and although their English is not the best they are still welcoming and giving a very good service. If you are interested in naval history Hamburg is a great place to visit. The city was once described as the gateway to Germany (and maybe Europe) and the ships have brought in lots of goods for centuries – they even brought The Beatles who had their first real gigs on the street Große Freiheit in the Reeperbahn area from 1960-1962.
If you haven’t visited Hamburg yet I would highly recommend you doing so.
I love autumn. It brings out some very special colours and a special mood. Besides that I love being in West Jutland, Denmark and I love the roughness of the North Sea.
