stories and photos of a simple Filipina who found her second home, Wolfenbüttel, DE

Tuesday, December 1, 2009


After visiting my Aunt Luvy in Hamburg, stayed there for at least two nights, we are both so happy to see each other again. She was delighted by Michael's cooking like "Rouladen" (beef). We talked about our family back in Philippines and about so many things. Then on the third day we said goodbye to her and hoping and invited her someday she'll come in Wolfenbüttel to visit us.

in the city of Glückstadt still in Hamburg

arriving in Wischhafen (harbor) it's only almost 12 in the afternoon and it's already dark

Not so far from Hamburg, a not so big city Stade, crossing the River Elbe through ferry for about 20 minutes from Glückstadt to Wischhafen we arrived in Stade. The city is beautiful with it's unique facades from 1500 to 1600 "Fachwerkhäuser" or traditional houses that is typical here in Northern Germany. Although i don't know anything about architecture i am always fascinated by these wonderful historical structures.
