Comforts before London again

Back in the north of Germany with the family. It really is great to have them here it has made the trip much better. The ability to relax as if at home and not be in a dorm room full of people. The great food and bed is of course even better.

Berlin was good. Things have changed since I was there in April. Massive big new main trainstation. Its amazing and a lot of the construction which was going on while I was there is finished. I managed to get almost all the flags I was missing and also got myself a book to read. So the reasons for going to Berlin were achieved.

We went to Hamburg yesterday. Went on a boat tour and a bus tour. Was nice to see the town and the habour in such a fashion. We got off the bus tour early to head down the shopping street. Found the Lego store :) Man I wish we had one of those when I was a little fella. There is this big pick a brick wall and you can fill up buckets of whichever bricks and colours you want. There is also heaps of colours now nothing like what I use to have.

Today we went on a drive south and west... I think... Saw a couple small villages on the river Elbe. Nice old towns. We also went and saw this huge double water lift thing. Picks up boats on the river below and lifts them about 80m up so they can carry on. Rather Amazing.

I fly out to London on the 7th of September. Which is a Thursday... I thought it was a Saturday when I booked it. Bit dissappointed to find out I have to spend even more time in London before the Oktoberfest tour. In hindsight though I might just be able to watch some footy in one of the Aussie pubs. I need to look into that.
