A secret treasure
Saturday, 30 May 2015
Once we started the Episode III of our journey, we experienced a sense of freedom - we were free to spend uninterrupted time together and simply take in kilometres of beautiful sceneries. Now, the trip is over. But, it has been packed with plenty of things to see and do - museums, landmarks, and scenic overlooks kept us busy. We made new friends, strolled through beaches, took boat trips, sat in cafeterias drinking coffee and eating ice creams, went to historic places where we took some good photo shots, wandered through boulevards and promenades with street vendors doing business in snacks and sweets, and with Klara and Laura jumping in and out of souvenir shops, touching everything, and laughing to each other. We began in Krynica Morska and winded up in Flensburg. In between, we experienced incredible diverse landscape. Lush forests, farmlands, red brick gothic Hanseatic towns, and long stretches of beaches provided stunning backdrops of our journey.
Day 14: From Kiel to Flensburg
Saturday, 23 May 2015
We left Sabine’s apartment just after the breakfast and before noon slowly rolled to the historical site of Hedaby situated just outside the town of Schleswig, to explore the Wikinger Museum and the nearby re-constructed Viking settlement known as Haithabu.
Day 13: From Travemünde to Kiel
Friday, 22 May 2015
Our day in Travemünde was placid. It was a perfect place to chill for a while and recover from being on the road. Today, after the late breakfast, we set off towards Kiel.
Day 12: Travemünde
Thursday, 21 May 2015
Our plan for today was to spend the whole day in Travemünde before heading off to Kiel tomorrow. Actually, that’s what we needed - a bit of a rest. Just hanging out and not being on the road was a delight. Preparing a breakfast, enjoying a boat tour on the Trave River, taking our daughters to the Pirate's Playground where they could climb ropes and nests, strolling alongside the local promenade, having a nap during the day, or visiting a museum ship of Passat, were a sweet interlude during which we could catch our breath after a few hectic days.
