Anyway, going to the Ostsee (Baltic Sea) was already on our Winter List of Things To Do, and a few weekends ago we went away for four glorious days of BEACH. I mean, it is winter, so it wasn't really a beach holiday, but there was beach involved.
|That small X is where we were. It took about 3 hours to drive from Berlin (plus a lunch break).|
|Mmm that's some nice barrel distortion|
The weather was mostly really good for us, especially considering it was WINTER - it was around 10°C during the day most days (if not a couple of degrees warmer), and only rained at night!
However, our Sunday stroll to the next town was pretty awful as we were walking along the beach against the wind. Pretty hard going, but we eventually got to Heringsdorf and had a look around.
|All directions that way. Also the train station.|
After going for a farewell walk along the jetty in Ahlbeck, we drove to Bansin (two towns along) and spotted a Holiday-making Berlin bear! Then we drove back to Berlin and to real life.
