Hamburg Highlights

Everyone has been asking when I am going to post about my trip to Germany. I have been so busy since my return that I haven’t had time to compile my photos and thoughts about the whole experience, but I think that I am now ready to put fingers to computer and get something down in print before the summer has passed me by.

There were several highlight about the trip, but I’m going to start in the order in which the delights arrived. The number one highlight, was seeing my sister and her children in their own environment. It warmed my heart greatly to be able to spend time with my sister’s twin daughters.  My sister owns and operates a popular cafe/restaurant called, Mamalicious. As a result, my nieces were the designated tour guides of Hamburg during our stay. It was great to see their city through their eyes and delight in ten year old enthusiasm.  It helps that it was Harbour Birthday and they live one block from the harbour! I am so glad that we were able to spend the time together. My only and crazy regret, is that I didn’t have an opportunity to try my sister’s cheesecake! She is famous for her cheesecake but after eating the wonderful breakfast that she prepared for us, I was too full to try the cheesecake. Thinking that I would be spending more time at the cafe, I thought that I would have other opportunities to sample her special delight. I was wrong. So I am left with one regret when it comes to my Hamburg visit…… that I didn’t have the opportunity to try my sister’s cheesecake! I will just have to go back!
