Journeys often surprise, and our recent spin through the ‘Alte Land’ was no exception. Starting amidst bustling traffic, we questioned our route choice. But, as the clamor receded, a serene landscape unveiled: golden fields, quaint villages, and tranquil trails. Not without its quirks, there was Jana’s comical hike-a-bike episode and Björn’s brief face-off with a fickle chain. Yet, amidst these hiccups, we found an idyllic spot by a stream, a perfect pause. Capping off with a breezy ferry ride, this wasn’t just a ride; it was a patchwork of memories stitched close to Hamburg’s heart.
