Day 5 – Visiting the North Sea

I haven’t been in this part of Germany before – Nordfriesland. I decided to visit Husum, St. Peter-Ording and Büsum. Out of the three, Husum is furthest north. I visited there first.

Of course, arriving … Continue reading Day 5 – Visiting the North Sea

I did not return to the city of my birth but chose another one instead. A new beginning. I didn’t know anyone in Hamburg, but eventually I found my way, made friends … Continue reading Fernweh
