We got back from our long-weekend trip to Northern Germany on Monday. The main reason for the trip was that one of my wife’s best friends gave birth to a girl 6 months ago and we wanted to introduce ourselves.

This (on the photo) is her. Her name is Tabea and she is adorable. Anke & Carsten, Tabea’s parents, asked Lené to be Tabea’s god-mother. Lené is predictably over the moon with this honour.

To see more of Tabea, Anke, Carsten (aka Holti) and Northern Germany check out my Northern Germany set on Flickr.

Northern Germany really is a beautiful region. There is very little of the rat race here and the people are friendly here as well. The most well known towns in the area are Bremen (from the Bremen Town Musicians fable) and Hamburg.

Being a right snob, I have to say that the North Sea (see photos as well) didn’t impress me much. But as a South-African I’m probably spoilt when it comes to oceans and beaches.
