Roadtrip to the North Sea

These days in October been really busy so me and my handsome other half thought of having an extended weekend together on the seashore.

We packed our bags on Friday before midday and head south-west to the city of Emden. We had some really good CDs to listen and these few hours went by really fast. We went sightseeing  in constant rain in Emden before we drove to the city of Leer. Unfortunately the weather wasnt better but we had the chance to visit an Autumn Fair as we went through the city. That was really nice as I wasnt on a fair for a few years. We had a hotel room booked in Oldenburg were we stood from Friday evening to Sunday after breakfast. Nice room-brilliant breakfast. Nothing I had missed! 😀

Saturday was exciting as we planned to visit the Isle of  Langeoog . We left Oldenburg and the constant rain and drove up north to the Seaside. As we drove the sky got more and lighter and as we almost reached the ferry terminal the sky was blue and the sun was out. That was such a blessing I can tell. We were in high spirits and neither the big crowd (tons of mommies&daddies and kid’s prepared and ready to spent their autumn holidays on that Isle) who waited with us at the terminal could bring us down.

After 35 minutes the Ferry reached the Isle and we got on a small train (as the Isle is car-free) to the Center of the Isle. It was wonderful strolling around the Isle, enjoying this blissful weather and the wind. I so love the smell of the ocean and how the spray covers your skin! After a long walk at the shore we had a break in a small cute Cafe to have a very East Frisian tea ceremony. It was very lovely.

We took the last ferry back to the mainland and headed to Jever the City with its famous Beer. We had a lovely Dinner at a restaurant after we went on a walk through the city centre.

Sunday we finally had some time to walk through Oldenburg and it really is a lovely city with a lot of old buildings. Liked it very much there. On our way home we made a stop in  North Germany’s biggest orchard I simply love being there. The river Elbe isn’t far and its a very special climate and vibe there. We bought some fresh apples and pears before we head back home.

Here are some pics of our trip! Enjoy!! 🙂 And tell me what you think! 🙂
