Photo challenge April: My Baltic Sea

Each month, I’m looking for pictures for a special topic. In April, I had to spot some water. This was actually a quite easy task since I went on a mini cruise with DFDS Seaways and was surrounded by water. But at the end, I had so many pictures showing water that it was quite difficult to find the one perfectly fit for my challenge. The picture shown above I made at the Baltic Sea. Since my hubby is working in Rostock I’m leading a semi-expat life. At weekends, I’m hitting the road to get from Bremen to Rostock. This gives me the chance to discover this area from a base camp.

Here is a short overview of what makes Christmas in Germany special for me: Christmas markets In Bremen we have two big christmas markets: the historic one at the market square and one at the river Weser which is more like a medieval market. Both have a really beautiful setting, cute little booths where you can buy presents and of course food stalls with various treats and snacks. I love to get myself a piece of fresh bread with a layer of lard which is the perfect base to have delicious mulled wine. And for some sweets I love the warm Baumkuchen (cylindrical cake built up of horizontal layers) with warm cherries. Yummy! So when in Germany, make sure to visit a Christmas market. Every city has one. If you don’t make it to the Bremen christmas market you might want to have a look at Braunschweig, Leipzig or Dresden. That are the ones I know and I love. …
