Don’t be fooled by the words that I got, I’m still, I’m still… Ahem! While I spent the better part of the past 20 years around Germans, Da Kid is well versed auf Deutsch, we both lived in Vienna for awhile and my family has now lived in Germany for almost a decade, my conversational skills aren’t really there. I do, however, understand most of the conversation that goes on, so don’t be fooled by my non-responsiveness either. I lurk around in the linguistic shadows! VERDRECHSELKEIT, however, is a “word” that easily defines the spirit of my Holiday trip to Deutschland and one which is hardest to explain, as it is the product of an inside joke and a soulful attachment to German-Speaking countries. Da Kid’s attachment that is. I had nothing to do with this.
If you have no idea what just happened up there in the first paragraph, I don’t blame you. I’ll just sum it up for you: Went to Germany for the Holidays this year, Da Kid overused a strange word, EVERYONE loved it, we ate a lot and took a lot of pictures (what else is new?).
PS I clearly wrote the first paragraph in an attempt to plug in a word that will ultimately boost my SEO ratings.
Our first day was, of course, spent hitting up our favourite Christkindlmarkt (and a few more) and introducing our system to spiked gluhwein and all of the käsekrainer(s).
The morning after, we jumped in the car, drove 6 hrs to Bavaria and spent the long Christmas weekend spa-ing and eating. Simple.
Back home to Hamburg on December 26th, then a day-trip to Bremen and more of Hamburg. More visual travel confessions below and a VERDRECHSELKEIT of a ZEIT!
A FEW DAYS WORTH OF HAMBURG
Thanks for strollin’ around down memory lane with me to the city where we learn to retire “Hamburg, mine perle” and Da Kid stuns his *ish down Jungfernsteig in a Bremen beanie. VERDRECHSELKEIT!!
