Greetings from Bremen, Germany
You probably know that I left my hometown to move to America when I was 23 years old.
Landon and I are visiting my mom and brother and friends for 10 days right now. We usually come to visit once a year, but last year we didn’t because my mom and brother came to visit us last fall.
L was so excited to get on the plane, can you tell?
We flew to Paris and got stuck there for an extra seven hours, which was annoying and exhausting, but I was just glad that we made it to Bremen on the same day. L was a total trooper — he has always been a great little traveler.
Made it! My mom and brother were waiting for us at the Bremen airport.
L and Oma played “Mensch earger Dich nicht,” and then we fell into bed.
After we slept for 12 solid hours, we got on the tram to reach a cafe we like to go to to have breakfast.
Riding the tram is still the first thing L asks for when he gets to Bremen. I have many pictures of him on the tram over the years.
We walked past many little gardens, called Pazellen. If you live in an apartment, you can buy one of these little garden properties. They usually have a tiny house or shed and are mostly full of flowers, trees, and grass. I didn’t see much planting of fruits and vegetables.
We stayed for about an hour and then decided to walk to another one of my favorite restaurants to have cake and ice cream. It’s a good thing that we walk a lot here in Germany, because we seem to eat every few hours.
