Postcards From | Bremen, Germany

posted in: Postcards From, Travel | 6

I already hear you think, Bremen? Where? Why? Well, I’ll be honest..After my first Irish encounter (read about it here!) I wanted my next stop to be Berlin. I’d never been to the city and people seemed to love that city so so much that it was an obvious choice. So here I was, looking for tickets and trying to get there in the cheapest way possible and I stumbled upon a flight to Bremen. Turns out that staying in Bremen for two nights & a day and taking the bus from there to Berlin cost me about the same as flying directly from Dublin to Berlin. Winning!

So Bremen wasn’t technically on my bucket list and the reason for going there wasn’t quite as romantic but you know what? Not having any expectations of the place you’re going to is very refreshing. So was the endless downpour.

The moment I reached my hostel I started feeling this huge lack of energy, my head hurt and my thought was tickling.  Basically, all I wanted was to cuddle up under a blanket with food and Netflix. So I made my way over to the closest supermarket and bought everything I was craving (which was basically everything), put on my PJ’s and shamelessly spent the whole evening in bed. The next morning I woke up refreshed and re-energized for a day of exploring in the rain. Bremen is definitely a very cute city, I even think the rain made it look even better. I wandered the streets, went to an art gallery and drank a huge cup of coffee while sitting by myself, observing the world around me. The old part of town is definitely my favourite; there’s something magical about the narrow alleys and crooked houses that seem to come straight out of a fairytale.

I had a lovely time in Bremen but one day was definitely enough. I started feeling lonely (didn’t find that many (solo) travelers here) and I was ready for my next stop: Berlin! – but more on that in a post soon to come so stay tuned :). Have you ever been to Bremen?

 

Liefs,

    I haven’t ever been to Bremen to my shame. I had the choice of studying there as a student but chose Hamburg instead. However even though I spent four months in Hamburg I didn’t visit Bremen. It’s cool that you got the chance to visit before Berlin for about the same price as just going to Berlin. It looks nice, even though it’s damp.

    Oh Bremen looks lovely (minus the rain – I’m a summer person). You should definitely come to Austria one day – I’m sure you’re gonna love it here ;)

    Love, Kerstin
