The Romantic Fairytale Fortress

Friday 29th –

A late night meant for a late ish morning.

At 10:00 we left the hotel and by 10:30 we were sitting down at ‘Rรถsterei Fuchs’ for some breakfast.

Along the walk I spotted some of the knit/crocheted art we’ve spotted a variety of places during our different journeys.   

We could almost have smelt our way to the restaurant as they roast coffee beans and you can smell it throughout all the nearby streets ๐Ÿ˜‹
My day started out great after I had my first sip
of a delicious (and huge) chia latte coffee โ˜•๏ธ  


Eggs, pancakes, warm breads, salads and a burger made up our assortment of foods and we were all able to start the day full and hopefully nourished enough for the exploring ahead ๐Ÿ˜  


We were surrounded by interesting sights. 


Stores, houses, doors and more were all around us and begging Aunty to photograph them ๐Ÿ˜‰

I personally loved these windows ๐Ÿ˜ 


Up to the ‘Schwerin Castle’ we went.
There were two weddings being photographed inside and around the castle so that meant cool cars were also nearby ๐Ÿ˜  


It was one of the most decorative castles I have been inside yet and has been described as a romantic fairytale fortress in some writings.
The artwork covering the ceilings was mind blowing as well as the woodwork all throughout the flooring.
Elaborate flower designs and patterns were pieced together flowing from one room to the next.
Some of the rooms had beautiful views out into the sea and surrounding gardens and the throne room left us all with our jaws on the floor.   


We walked through the gardens and enjoyed our sunny day ๐ŸŒค


As we left the castle and walked on, the wind caught two card stands outside of a shop, scattering cards all over the cobblestone. 


We and some others stared grabbing them up before they blew away and the lady who owned the store said we could take a free card for our help ๐Ÿ˜‹

The search for food began again but this time our foodie senses didn’t work too well.
Our server wasn’t very nice, our soup turned out to be more broth then anything else and Miles German sausage was a hotdog ๐Ÿ˜†
At least the meal was decently cheap and we were filled enough to continue on ๐Ÿ˜œ

We left that town around 4:00 pm and drove to Hamburg. 


I slept most of the way there and Mike specifically chose to break for supper there because they had a Vapianos and Aunty was feeling like Italian food so it was a win win ๐Ÿ˜‰
Also a way to more than make up for the pathetic lunch๐Ÿ˜ 

Aunty and Uncle really enjoyed it, as did we ๐Ÿ˜Š

Mike wanted to check out an Abercrombie store, it had stunning chandeliers throughout ๐Ÿ˜ 


Once the three of us had had enough of waiting for Mike to try on clothes we went outside and people watched.
Which is fun to do anywhere but especially on one of the high-end/upper-class streets.                                                     (Just realized those descriptions are oppsities describing the same thing? high END and UPPER Class… Makes no sense really now that I’m over thinking it but that could just be me and morning not getting along yet ๐Ÿ˜œ)
Fancy cars, important looking beautifully dressed people and fantastic buildings were all around us.


Mike figured he needed a Starbucks to sip on the drive so we went there quickly.
They had an interesting magnet board display that people had filled with money from all different places around the world ๐ŸŒ๐Ÿ’ธ 


The barista made a drink and it wasn’t what Mike had ordered but they were closing and no one else was there for the drink so they gave it to us for free โ˜บ๏ธโ˜•๏ธ
It’s little things like that which make your day sometimes…especially when it’s free coffee ๐Ÿ˜‰

Aunty had to take a picture of the little truck and needed people beside to bring it to scale ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿš™ If it can even be called a truck ๐Ÿ˜„  


On the road again, we eventually made it back around midnight to our places of rest, Mooirivier and the cottage๐Ÿ˜

Hello humans ๐Ÿ˜Š This is where you learn about me I suppose, though anyone reading this right now most likely knows all the boring details ;) I am Jessica Rose Peters-Hagenouw. (Always thought I'd be able to pronounce my married name but hey, life doesn't go as we plan.) June 11, 1995, tis the day Robert and Bonnie Peters received the most adorable, amazing, wonderful, surprise 3rd child they could have dreamed of. Speaking of being the third child, I have an older brother and an older sister. Both of whom are married and have wee little families of their own, making 'Aunty Jess' another name I go by. I grew up and have lived all of my years up till November 2015 in Saskatchewan, Canada. Making summers that are extremely short and winters that never end, vast open spaces, northern lights, unthinkable amounts of mosquitoes, lakes, forests and people waving to you on the grid road all different things that mean = Home. But Home is not where I'll be for some time. My husband is a Dutchman, living in Europe. Therefore I too have been living in Europe for the last few months. The reason I started this little blog/journal/writing thing, is to document a bit of my "whole new world," for those at home who wont be awake at 3:00 am wanting to hear about how I couldn't find flour at the grocery store. Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek into my little life ๐Ÿ˜Š
