Hamburg Moments

Hamburg moments text

My husband and I just returned from yet another fantastic trip to Hamburg. I wanted to share a few where, when and what’s with you from our latest trip. We often stay in a flat, but almost always in the St. Pauli area.

Where to stay ➳ We stayed at east

Where to get your cup of coffee ➳ I would highly recommend you check out Nord Coast Coffee Roastery and less political (Hermetic coffee roasters)

When to visit the city ➳ Every single day of the year – we’ve been there spring, summer, fall and winter.

Where to get a decent burger and sweet potato fries ➳ Check out Brooklyn Burger Bar and Otto’s Burger (Try the salted caramel shake!)

Where to find food trucks ➳ Street food session Yum!

Where to shop ➳ Get away from the high streets – and explore all the cool little shops. This time I bought quite a few things in Kauf Dich Glücklich

Where to eat pizza (to die for) Das Mehl – we went there in November and loved every bite of pizza – I hope they’ll find a new location soon

What to do on a rainy day Visit Miniature Wunderland – it’s not just for kids – adults will love it too

Have a fantastic day xoxo

 

Coffee in Gothenburg

I almost feel like it isn’t really summer if I haven’t been to Gothenburg in Sweden. Last week we decided on a day trip this year with both kids. Unfortunately, the ferry had a little accident on Sunday, and we had to change our plans. We were all pretty excited about the trip, but we decided to go during our fall break instead.

I wanted to return to my favourite coffee spot da Matteo with my husband and both kids.

But I also recently discovered another coffee spot, Kafé Magasinet, which I’ve been wanting to explore.

Paris in a box

Did you enjoy the summer in Paris with your kids? Or maybe a trip to the lovely city is just around the corner? I’ve found the perfect way for kids to discover or remember Paris.

On the blog Made by Joel, I’ve found the cutest miniature travel size paper Paris.

Made-by-Joel-Travel-Size-Paper-City-Paris-1a Made-by-Joel-Travel-Size-Paper-City-Paris-3 Get out your scissors and create a miniature version of Paris that’ll fit right into a tiny box. It’s perfect for kids and parents on the go. If you’re looking for a larger version, you can print it right here.

Made by Joel has a really cute selection of paper city toys. Take a look around and maybe your kid will be playing with dinosaurs in Sydney in a few days.

Summer in Gothenburg

I’m on my way to Gothenburg. I cannot wait for a tiny break away from everything. It will be a nice distraction right now. The best coffee at da Matteo, lunch at Way Cup and lots and lots of shopping. I’ve been looking at Granit’s webshop and found a few things I cannot wait to see in the shop. Although, I cannot bring this bike home with me – it’s still really cool. The rest, I’m sure I’ll fit into a bag or two.

Back home again

I’m a bit lost these days. I’ve been without my iPhone (again) for almost 14 days, and somehow that made it a bit more complicated to capture moments from our trip to Hamburg. But we did bring a camera, I just need to look through the pictures first. I hope to do that during the week.

But we did enjoy a few days in the amazing city – and my daughter loved it as well. We’re already looking at dates for our next visit. But it’ll just be the two of us then – and the kids’ll stay at home. It turned out to be a bit of a shopping trip – we hadn’t planned that though. I’ll write up a few tips and must see places during the week as well. So stay tuned for that.

I’ll enjoy the last few hours of my vacation – and catch up on some reading. First on my list is the new online magazine NIB Hjemme. And then I’ll go explore the forum on Blogging Your Way. Class begins on November 1st – and I’m so ready to get inspired again.

A Hamburg state of mind

I’m in a Hamburg state of mind and I cannot wait to visit the amazing city again soon. This time I’ll introduce my 7 year old girl to the city.

This would be my ultimate collection of great things to pack – except for the concrete diamond of course. But it just reminds me of Hamburg. In many ways Hamburg is just that – an beautiful diamond made of concrete.
