I’ve reached Bremen on my way west towards the Dutch coast and am spending an extra day here looking around town and trying the local brew.
Decided not to go on the Becks brewery tour, have so far avoided most of the major tourist attractions wherever I have visited. In part to save money but also because I like to try to hang around where there are more locals.
Spent Tuesday night at a campground that had a pool and went for a swim late at night. Incredibly that was my first proper swim of the-walk! Was about to go and get my phone to test it’s water capabilities (it’s a Sony Xperia that is waterproof) but just then a group of kids turned up and started splashing around in the shallow end of the pool. I did not want to be the old guy with a camera in a pool with a group of kids…. The waterproof testing will have to wait!
The weather has been great, warm (hot by european standards) and I’m glad I remember to pack my sun hat.
Sent another package back to Sweden with stuff I don’t need today. Have decided that everything except the tent and mattress has to fit inside the alu-box or I have to much.
I’m off to check out the beer garden scene along the river and if I don’t get back too late, I might start working on the equipment update I have been promising for a while…
